MedCat Alumni Board

The Alumni Board connects, celebrates, and inspires University of Arizona College of Medicine alumni.

The purpose of the Alumni Board is to increase awareness of the many outstanding people and programs of the UA College of Medicine. Board members are ambassadors of the College, serving in an advisory capacity, acting as liaisons to alumni, providing feedback to the College of Medicine administration, and providing input regarding the College’s strategic plan when possible.

The board’s goals include promoting a spirit of community, cooperation and fellowship; fostering philanthropic loyalty; and supporting the College of Medicine’s mission to advance health and wellness through education, research and patient care.

Board Membership

The board is composed of volunteers representing each decade of UA College of Medicine graduates, as well as student representatives, faculty, and staff of the College of Medicine.  Applications will become available again in the spring of 2021.

Board Member Responsibilities

  • Attend meetings three or four times a year; meetings alternate between Tucson and Phoenix.
  • Participate in ad-hoc committees based on your interest areas
  • Attend UA College of Medicine alumni events

Members find serving on the Alumni Board to be a meaningful way to give back and stay connected to the life of the college.
