Medical Alumni Reunion Weekend 2018

The Wayne State University School of Medicine Alumni Association Medical Alumni Reunion Weekend will be May 18-20, 2018.

This wonderful weekend of learning, visiting and recognition provides a great opportunity to regain the spirit of your experience at the School of Medicine and reaffirm your lifetime commitment to your profession and your school.

Festivities begin Friday night with a stimulating evening of music and art at the Detroit Institute of Art.  Saturday kicks off with interesting and relevant CME sessions, featuring alumni presenters, followed by lunch and a tour of the School of Medicine.  After a short break in the afternoon, we will reconvene at MGM Grand Detroit for a special class reception, followed by dinner and an award ceremony. The weekend celebration concludes Sunday with an entertaining and informative bus tour around Detroit that showcases the city’s incredible revitalization.

Whether you graduated 5 or 70 years ago, Medical Alumni Weekend is a great way to reunite with friends, recall some of your best memories and learn how Wayne State School of Medicine has changed. All alumni are encouraged to attend!
