Boston University 
School of Medicine Alumni Newsletter 
Summer 2013
Dear Colleague:

Before we transition into plans to welcome a new medical school class, we want to share images from recent activities.   Last month, more than 500 folks attended School of Medicine Alumni Weekend events at the medical school and The Taj Hotel.  


One of the highlights for me was the "Campus Experience" which givesalumni a taste of what it is to be a BUSM student now.   Our renowned faculty provided examples of the technology used in the classroom to facilitate learning.  A panel of students made presentations about life at BUSM and the important programs that enhance their experience and training.  Check out a video of the presentation. 


It was also a pleasure to hear and see the excitement of alumni who have not visited the campus, some for as little as one year, others as long as 50! 


Graduation as always was an exciting and memorable event.  


We hope you enjoy the latest E-Newsletter. It is one of the ways we try to keep you connected with BUSM.  If you are on campus, please stop by to say hello!

Have a great summer!

Best regards,
