Welcome

A warm welcome from all of us at Alumni Affairs.

Since 1975, SIU School of Medicine has educated and trained more than 3,000 MD alumni, and nearly 3,000 resident and fellow alumni. Every graduate becomes a member of the School of Medicine Alumni Society. There are no dues.

The Office of Alumni Affairs and the Alumni Society seek to provide meaningful ways to connect and engage its alumni and current students with their alma mater and with each other. Through events and outreach, we help to foster lasting relationships and advance the school’s mission.
