Involved
With Your Alumni Community

Getting through any UW School of Medicine program is challenging. Students balance coursework, research and clinical responsibilities, all while planning for their careers and deciding on specialties. 

That’s where our alumni come in. As a UW School of Medicine alum, you’re uniquely positioned to support our students. We have many programs alumni can participate in, including:

Questions?

You can reach out to us at medalum@uw.edu.

  • Student-Alumni Informational Discussions (SAID): At these facilitated small-group discussions, alumni can answer questions about career paths, specialties and anything else current students might want to know. Read more about SAID. 
  • Mentoring: MD program alumni can become preceptors and mentor first-year medical students in a clinical setting. Learn more about mentoring. 
  • HOST Program: After graduation, students can reach out to alumni hosts in their city to start building their own UW Medicine community, no matter where they end up. Explore the HOST program. 

Volunteering is a great way to get involved in the UW Medicine alumni community and stay connected with your School! While our student mentoring opportunities are currently limited to the MD program, we’re working on ways to engage with students from other degree programs — watch this space for more information.
