NYU School of Medicine Alumni Reunion

NYU School of Medicine Alumni Reunion

Come “home” with fellow NYU School of Medicine alumni for a weekend of activities and celebrations to mark Alumni Reunion 2019. We can’t wait to see you there! 

Our school and extraordinary alumni continue to make a tremendous impact on the field of medicine, and Reunion offers a special opportunity to catch up on the latest developments. Visit our vibrant campus, meet up with friends and other leaders in healthcare and science, and remember what makes you proud to be part of the NYU School of Medicine community. 

The weekend features a full slate of speakers and presentations with updates from across NYU Langone Health, including innovations in education. We kick off the festivities with a party in the breathtaking Science Building—part of our grand-scale campus transformation, and a crucial resource for our student body. We’re also offering small group tours of our new state-of-the-art inpatient facilities, the Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Pavilion and Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital—34th Street. Our signature Alumni Reunion Ball at the beautiful Wagner at the Battery hotel caps this unforgettable weekend. 

Join us to connect with classmates, mentors, and even a few of tomorrow’s alumni, as we celebrate shared accomplishments and envision the brightest possible future for NYU School of Medicine.
