Services and support
Medical School alumni have a unique bond with their classmates and their campus.
More than 17,700 MD degrees have been issued by the University of Minnesota Medical School since it first opened its doors in 1888. What our alumni did after that is pretty incredible.
Through friendship and scholarship, our alumni made lifelong memories on the Twin Cities and Duluth campuses. Each year, we welcome back alumni for class reunions and special events. Our alumni stay connected and get involved through the Medical Alumni Society.
Whether attending an event, volunteering as a mentor or making a gift, alumni can make a difference and help aspiring future doctors achieve their dreams.
Your support matters
We believe that with your support anything is possible.
Medical discoveries can transform lives and create a healthier future, but we can't do it without your philanthropic support. The University of Minnesota Foundation, home to the Medical Alumni Society, manages and raises private gifts to advance health and medical research, education through scholarships, and care at the University of Minnesota.
The future of medicine
Our Medical Alumni Society works with the University of Minnesota Foundation (formerly Minnesota Medical Foundation), to help fund the future of medicine and health at the University of Minnesota. Alumni donors are greatly appreciated for their gifts to education. Awards are distributed to current students through need-based scholarships as well as at the annual Medical School Honors and Awards ceremony, which all alumni are welcome to attend.
Alumni advance our research every day. Whether it's:
- looking to cure type 1 and type 2 diabetes,
- leading stem cell research and regenerative medicine,
- finding breakthrough treatments for HIV, or
- tackling cancer, the number one killer in Minnesota.
Medical discoveries can transform lives and create a healthier future, but we can't do it without your philanthropic support.
