The 2024 Student/Alumni Dinners will be held in March 

Host registration deadline is Friday, February 16, 2024. 

Why become a dinner host? 

The students love any opportunity to meet with you and are excited to hear about medicine and community/family life from your perspective and listen to your stories and experiences. They look forward to the future stages of their careers and these dinners serve as a great way for you to mentor the students. 

What does being a host entail?

As a dinner host, you would provide dinner in your home or gather together at a local restaurant of your choice. The number of dinner guests would be at your discretion (typically ranges from 3 – 8 students) and some dinner hosts allow for the students to bring one guest with them (spouse/significant other). Please note, if you choose to dine at a restaurant, you would be responsible for securing the dinner reservation and covering the cost of the evening.
