Advocacy, Student Engagement, & Financial Support

New Med StudentsThe University of Utah School of Medicine Alumni Association exists to strengthen and support the University of Utah's School of Medicine by promoting life-long relationships between alumni, current students, trainees, and the School of Medicine.

The Alumni Association promotes the overall vision and purpose of the medical school through advocacy, student engagement, and financial support. Participate with the association by learning about our events and programs, read the latest issue of Illuminations magazine, volunteer some of your time to assist current medical students, and contribute to the overall success of the U's medical school by making a contribution. We look forward to hearing from you and invite you to update your information and share with us your career highlights and achievements!
