Quite the celebration

Hundreds of University of Minnesota Medical School alumni and their guests came back to campus in September to reunite with their classmates at the annual Alumni Celebration, hosted by the Medical Alumni Society.

While all alumni were welcome to attend, the classes of 2011, 2006, 1996, 1991, 1986, 1976, 1966, 1961, and 1956 marked the occasion with class receptions. Other highlights included tours of the U’s Visible Heart Lab and SimPORTAL, research presentations by some of the U’s most innovative faculty members, and a Gopher football win over the Colorado State Rams.

Alumni hosts needed

Interviewing for a residency placement can be a nerve-racking process. The Medical Alumni Society is seeking alumni who live outside of Minnesota to host medical students as they travel for residency interviews. Besides offering a friendly face and camaraderie, hosts help ease the financial burden of travel for students. 

To sign up, visit z.umn.edu/alumnihost, or contact Katrina Roth at 612-625-0336 for more information.
