Fostering alumni connections, service

Medical School alumni, students, faculty, and staff found camaraderie and a sense of accomplishment on September 29, volunteering at Feed My Starving Children in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, during the University of Minnesota’s Day of Service.

The annual event, which engages U of M alumni, students, and friends in serving their community, is one of many ways medical alumni can stay connected with the Medical School and the University. Here are some others:

  • Host traveling students: The Help Our Students Travel program encourages medical alumni to provide lodging to students and trainees as they travel for residency and fellowship interviews. Learn more or sign up at
  • Become an eHOST for students: Share invaluable insights and guidance on specialties, hospitals, research, local communities, and much more — digitally. Sign up to be an eHOST at
  • Help plan your 2019 class reunion: Help us make your reunion memorable by serving on your reunion planning committee or as a reunion gift volunteer. To learn more, contact Maureen Long at or 612-626-8045.
  • Participate on our all-new Alumni Board: We are rebuilding the Medical Alumni Society Board, which serves the needs and interests of the University of Minnesota Medical School and the medical alumni community.
