We invite you to learn more about the events and programs we offer for alumni, faculty and students.


Events for Alumni and Faculty

Reunion Weekend is held each year in conjunction with Spring Clinical Day. Alumni gather from across the country to reconnect with classmates and to participate in activities sponsored by the MAA.

This event is held each year during Reunion Weekend. It addresses a theme relevant to medical education, biomedical research or clinical care and features expert speakers, a luncheon and poster presentations by UB residents as part of their Scholarly Exchange Research Day.

These awards are presented each spring to graduates (medical and biomedical), residents and volunteers who are recognized by their peers for outstanding contributions to medicine, science and our community.

The Gold Humanism Honor Society is a steadfast advocate for humanism and honors medical students, residents, role-model physician teachers and other exemplars recognized for “demonstrated excellence in clinical care, leadership, compassion and dedication to service."

This annual event celebrates our donors' loyalty and generosity to the school.

The Medical Alumni Association presents the UB DoctHERS Symposium each year. Join us for a morning of networking, information on leadership development, and support for women physicians, scientists, faculty, residents, students and healthcare professionals.
