We want you, as an alum, to feel that you are an integral part of our community. There are myriad ways to engage – opportunities that will make you truly proud of your alma mater.

  • Follow our news on the School of Medicine Alumni Association (SOMAA) website and our SOMAA Facebook page.
  • Keep an eye out for our emails from “HS-UC Davis Medical Alumni.” If you think we might not have your address, let us know via medalumni@ucdavis.edu. We promise not to inundate you!
  • Share your thoughts in the short surveys we send now and then, to help us ensure our program engages and serves you.
  • Accept our invitation to an event – big or small, in your locale or here in Sacramento.

With that last point in mind, remember that the School of Medicine’s Alumni Weekend 2019 is Oct. 25–26. It’s Class Reunion Weekend for the “4s and 9s!”

Come share, learn and celebrate with your classmates and friends. Meet our amazing students. Hear from fellow alumni on the faculty. Fete our 2019 SOM Alumni Award recipients, Frank Sousa (M.D., ’74) and John Shepherd (M.D., ’79). For details and registration, visit health.ucdavis.edu/medalumni/calendar.

To close, we’re pleased to welcome alumni from the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis to the alumni section of UC Davis Health magazine. Founded by the nation’s largest grant for nursing education in 2007, the school – and its five graduate-degree programs – play a critical role in preparing nurse leaders who will help shape the future of health care and inform health policy.

In 2018, School of Nursing alumni (406) surpassed current students (323) for the first time. Interprofessional education and care are cornerstones of the approach at UC Davis Health, as you’ll see from the interview on p. 24 – and we’re glad for you to meet more talented health leaders!
