Capstone Celebration, June 1, 2010
Every year, UW Medicine Alumni Relations holds a celebration for fourth-year students just before they graduate: the Capstone Celebration.
Clinical Transition Ceremony, June 3, 2010
Second-year students received their white coats — a symbol of their transition from classroom-based learning into clinical training — in June. One student holds words of advice from an alumnus on managing the shift.
Welcome and Stethoscopes, Summer 2010
The UW Medicine Alumni Association presented a welcome gift — stethoscopes — to students starting their first year of medical school at sites outside of Seattle. The site is part of the programming provided by the UW School of Medicine’s WWAMI program. (Learn more about WWAMI’s origins; see the piece on Jack Lein, M.D. ’55.)

It’s not too early to put the 2011 reunion weekend on your calendar: June 3–4, 2011. In the meantime, please enjoy these photos from the 2010 reunion. Please also see the profile of Martin Burkland, M.D. ’50, as he reminisces about the early days of the UW School of Medicine.
