For Miller School medical student Cameron Pole, the Paul J. DiMare Medical Scholarship was a major factor in his decision to come to the University of Miami. Without it, the third-year student, who is specializing in ophthalmology, would have incurred major debt. Recently, Pole was glad to have the opportunity to deliver a face-to-face “thank you” to the donor who made his Miller School education possible.
Medical alumni from around the country mingled, reconnected, and reminisced on the Miller School of Medicine campus and at the Biltmore Hotel this past weekend for Medical Alumni Weekend 2015. The annual event celebrated the medical school with three days of activities that ushered in a new generation of UM physicians, shared recent advances in research and patient care, and brought together former classmates.
