Coronavirus Postponement Alert

Out of an abundance of caution, our Spring Medical Alumni Weekend (including Milestone Reunions event), set to take place April 3-4, has been postponed indefinitely due to the evolving novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We are in the process of contacting registrants with more information and will let all alumni know plans for rescheduling once they are set. Please call us at (919) 962-8891 or email us at medalum@med.unc.edu with any questions and concerns.

 

Our Spring Alumni Weekends celebrate the reunions of past medical school classes as they come together to reminisce about the past and share plans for the future. They also allow us to recognize the contributions of our alumni, faculty and other individuals to the School of Medicine and the practice of medicine.
