Alumni Society

Founded in 1978, the Alumni Society includes all MDs, residents, and fellow graduates of the School of Medicine. Governance is vested in a Board of Governors composed of 20 alumni members plus ex-officio members representing the School's key units, including the Student Assembly.

We have 3,233 SIU School of Medicine Alumni, 2,306 graduates in practice, and 901 (39%) practicing in 66 Illinois counties.

SIU School of Medicine also includes over 4,000 resident and fellow alumni.

The Alumni Society's mission is to provide an official organization through which its members, as well as the faculty, staff, students and residents of the School of Medicine, may maintain professional and personal relationships to the mutual benefit of the members of the alumni society and to the school.

Alumni Society's purpose is to support the School's mission and vision by engaging its members and the faculty, staff, students, and residents of the School of Medicine by:

  • maintaining professional and personal relationships promoting fellowship to the mutual benefit of the members of the Alumni Society and the School
  • expressing to the School alumni special interests regarding the operation of the School of Medicine
  • seeking financial gift support from Alumni by encouraging members to make and assist with seeking private and government gifts
  • supporting the public relations programs by acting as a voice for alumni
  • encouraging alumni work with the School in the planning and production of alumni reunion programs and other special social events
  • promoting the welfare of the School on a state and national level through the legislative process
  • providing an organization through which alumni and the School can work mutually in the placement of graduates
