This year the UW Medicine Alumni Association partnered with Student Affairs to host Family Day as part of the first-year students’ orientation week. Presenters gave an overview of the school, and shared insights and advice to the students and family members. The event culminated with alumni distributing stethoscopes to students.

“The students are great. And it’s fun to remember the ‘good old days’ of being a medical student and to share a bit of life as a practicing physician,” says Nathaniel Schlicher, M.D. ’06.
Fun, information and food form the foundation of the Student-Alumni Informational Dinners (SAID), a program that takes place primarily at the homes of Puget Sound-area alumni.
And it doesn’t even need to be dinner, exactly, says veteran host Angela Chien, M.D. ’95. “Dinner can also mean brunch, lunch, or midday drinks and appetizers,” she says. “The key is to find time to spend with first- and second-year students and help them explore what it’s like to be a doctor today.”
HOST, Help Our Students Travel, offers another opportunity to get to know students. Alumni all over the country offer students a place to stay for a few days while they do residency interviews.
