The WVU School of Medicine Alumni Association is dedicated to sustaining the School's reputation for excellence in teaching, research and service. It provides programs to keep alumni informed about the School's progress and to preserve strong ties between alumni, faculty and students.
Organized in 1952, the Association works interdependently with the School of Medicine to provide opportunities for alumni to keep in touch. It is governed by a nine-member Executive Council and standing committees, with program and administrative support from the Office of Alumni Affairs. Our consistent membership rate of 50%+/-, ranks the Association among the top professional school alumni groups in the nation.
Membership is extended to MD and PhD graduates of the School of Medicine, WVU Faculty, West Virginia physicians, former WVU house officers and companions in the following categories:
- Annual Member
- Life Member
- Emeritus Member
- Resident Member
- Associate Member
- Companion Member
- Honorary Member
An active, vigorous Alumni Association reflects the affection and concern the School has for its alumni. Its members identify with and return that commitment.
This premier event gives graduates a unique opportunity to return to campus, renew friendships at class reunions and attend scientific seminars. They also can attend the faculty alumni mixer, the alumni awards banquet, presentation of the Distinguished Alumnus Award, pre-game parties and an exciting Mountaineer football game. The annual business meeting of the Alumni Association is held during Alumni Weekend.
The desire to renew friendships, to maintain ties with each other and with the School is the impetus for a successful reunion. Here at the WVU School of Medicine we have a quinquennial reunion tradition during Alumni Weekend.
Wonderful things happen during reunions. Alumni experience the old and the new; fond memories and familiar faces combined with exciting changes and new ideas at their alma mater.
