We welcomed more than 250 alumni and friends during Physicians Alumni Weekend 2018 on October 26-27. Our alumni had the opportunity to reconnect with classmates and see the many new additions to the School of Medicine since their last visit to Mizzou.
Scientific Program attendees were treated to a visit by 2018 Nobel Laureate, Dr. George P. Smith, MU Curators Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Biological Sciences, to kick off the day’s lectures. They learned about the history of medical education, value-based care, biomedical informatics, child sleep apnea and healthcare trends, and participated in breakout sessions on women in medicine, the Springfield Clunical Campus and patient-based learning. The program also featured the inaugural Ted Groshong, MD, Alumni Lecture given by Michael Hosokawa, EdD, senior associate dean for education, and the 2018 Milton D. Overholser Memorial Lecture by keynote speaker Jerry Kruse MD, ’79, dean and provost of Southern Illinois University School of Medicine.
The Class of 1968 celebrated their golden anniversary and were presented with commemorative medals at the Medical Alumni Banquet. Alumni classes celebrating five and ten year reunions also caught up during the banquet and brunch, and cheered on the Tigers!

Ways to Give
Help endow the Ted Groshong, MD, Alumni Lecture! We are more than halfway to the $100,000 goal, but would like to be fully funded by PAW 2019. Make your gift to honor Dr. Groshong and his dedicated service to generations of physician alumni and Missouri families.
Reunion classes are also encouraged to give to their Class Scholarship Fund to help support medical students at Mizzou. Information about your class fund status will be shared in reunion communications, but why wait? Make a contribution today.
