The SIU School of Medicine Alumni Society was formed in 1978 for the purpose of creating an organization through which alumni and faculty, staff and students of the School of Medicine could develop and maintain a mutually beneficial relationship. All graduates of the School of Medicine are considered members of the Alumni Society. Governance is vested in a Board of Governors currently composed of 20 alumni members plus ex-officio members who represent key units of the School, including the Student Assembly.
We have 3,023 SIU School of Medicine Alumni; 2,242 graduates in practice; 922 (42%) in practice in 71 Illinois counties.
SIU School of Medicine also includes 2,939 resident and fellow alumni.
The mission of the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine Alumni Society is to act in support of the School of Medicine’s mission and to promote the success and stature of the School.
