October 2, 2020

While we cannot gather for Alumni Weekend in person this year, the UF College of Medicine is thinking of you. We are proud of all the alumni physicians, physician assistants and researchers who have advanced the field of medicine over the past 60+ years. There are several ways to reconnect virtually this year including lectures, updates and celebrations. If you are in a milestone reunion year, you will receive an email regarding a class Zoom happy hour. We look forward to seeing you in Gainesville soon. Go Gators!
