About Us

Your UW School of Medicine Alumni Association is the place to connect with your classmates, your school and fellow alumni. We serve all our alumni, from physicians, physician’s associates and physical and occupational therapists to researchers, educators and entrepreneurs.

If you graduated from the UW School of Medicine or completed a residency or fellowship here, you are automatically a member of the UW School of Medicine Alumni Association and have full access to our benefits and resources.
