Alumni Weekend 2011 celebrated the Miller School of Medicine’s past, present, and future, with three days of activities dedicated to bringing together former medical school classmates. A record-breaking 400 medical alumni and friends attended seminars, ceremonies, professional workshops, and receptions, traveling from as far away as Guam and Washington State to attend.
Kicking off alumni weekend, the Class of 2014 was officially welcomed into the Miller School family and the medical profession Friday evening during the 11th Annual John G. Clarkson Freshman Pinning Ceremony, a celebration filled with pomp, circumstance, and plenty of pride.
