Happy Spring to you all! This is always such an exciting time of year around MCOM, and it never fails to bring back a flood of memories for me. We celebrated Match Day on March 18th and learned where our graduating students will go next – while many will stay right here in our backyard, others will go to places across the country. Check out a recap of Match Day HERE and see if any of them are headed your way. I welcome the opportunity to connect you to our students, whether newly matched or more junior, who are looking for alumni connections. Enroll in the ASSIST program HERE – it’s a great way to let us know you want those connections! Thank you to the over 100 alumni who have already enrolled!


Coming up on May 6th will be our 48th commencement! I emphasize 48th because we are actively planning for our 50th commencement celebration in 2024! We will share updates as we know them so stay tuned! It promises to be a year filled with wonderful memories and opportunities to connect and celebrate with us.


Speaking of celebrating with us, US News and World Report recently reported that MCOM remains in the top 50 US medical schools for research,  moving up 2 spots to #46, a point of pride for all of us! Read more HERE.


There is so much going on here at USF Health MCOM and with your MCOM Alumni Society! I love hearing from all of you so don’t be shy! Reach out to me and get involved! You will not regret it, I promise!
