SAID program dinner with students and alumni

Alumnus Anthony Forte, M.D. ’85, Res. ’89, and his wife, Kathleen, held a well-attended Student-Alumni Informational Dinner (SAID) a few months ago. Forte documented the occasion — in which several doctors shared information about their specialties with medical students — with a photo.

If you’d like to learn more about SAID or other opportunities to help students, we’ve explained a whole host of volunteer opportunities in this magazine. There are many ways to help students have an even more rewarding experience at medical school. Or simply contact us at 206-685-1875, toll free 1-866-633-2586 or medalum@uw.edu. We look forward to hearing from you.

www.uwmedalumni.org: Same Address, Better Site!

In fall 2009, UW Medicine updated its website to make it more inviting, more informative and easier to navigate. And the UW Medicine Alumni Association was part of that upgrade. If you haven’t visited the association’s website lately, give it a try. It’s simpler than ever to sign up for activities — like this year’s All-School Celebration — and to learn about programs. You’ll find the alumni site at www.uwmedalumni.org and UW Medicine’s primary website at www.uwmedicine.org. And, if you’d like to make a donation to patient care, research or teaching at UW Medicine, please visit www.supportuwmedicine.org.

Family Day, held in Seattle on Sept. 4, 2009, is part of the School of Medicine’s orientation process; first-year students and their families and friends join faculty and academic leadership to learn what to expect during medical school. Following the presentations, each student was given a stethoscope — a gift from the UW Medicine Alumni Association. Washington State University-University of Idaho-WWAMI Medical Education Program staff member Marlane Martonick wrote to thank the association for the stethoscopes.

“Our students have just completed their three-day orientation and are now attending their first day of class,” writes Martonick. “The highlight of our orientation last Thursday was the stethoscope ceremony, which everyone truly enjoyed… the students were all so very pleased and proud to have received this gift from your organization.”
