SOM Alumni Association

After graduating from the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, all alumni are members of the Alumni Association. This organization offers leadership opportunities by serving on the board, which plays a big role in helping direct our alumni outreach efforts and coordinating innovative ways to support our current students.

Meetings

We hold three meetings per academic year which are open to all alumni, students, faculty and staff. 
Fall Meeting - usually coincides with Fall Alumni Weekend events
Spring Meeting - Friday before Alumni Reunion Weekend events
Summer Meeting - June or July
