"THIS IS AN EXTRAORDINARY OPPORTUNITY FOR (CURRENT STUDENTS) TO NETWORK WITH ALUMNI IN PRACTICE."- University Of Scranton Associate Director Of Volunteer Engagement Lynn Andres '89

The Medical Alumni Council Executive Committee will host the 2017 Medical Alumni Symposium Oct. 14 on campus.

"The day-long event promises to be informative, exciting and inspiring," said University of Scranton Associate Director of Volunteer Engagement Lynn Andres '89. "It will include an array of CME topics from accomplished alumni, updates on your alma mater and time to reminisce and network.

"Many undergraduate pre-professional students and alumni currently in medical school and residency will be in attendance. This is an extraordinary opportunity for them to network with alumni in practice." 

While this day was designed with Scranton alumni in mind, Andres said, it is also open to medical professionals who did not attend the University. Both physicians and advanced practice clinicians are welcome.
