Making Connections for the Future of Medicine
As the education and practice of medicine advances, our exceptional Alumni community is one of the greatest resources for today’s students. What do you wish you had known as a first, second, third or fourth year medical student? What advice do you wish you had followed? What did you need to discover on your own?
Through the Alumni-Student Connections programs, alumni are invited to reach out and share your insights, experiences and support with students as they navigate the distinction, commitments, challenges and responsibilities of becoming Temple Made physicians.
Share some words of encouragement for our first-year students as they begin their careers in medicine! Theirs is the first class to experience Temple Med’s innovative reimagined curriculum, and while pioneering a new way of learning during the global pandemic these students have adapted and boldly pushed forward. Offer congratulations as they have just finished their first block.
Inspiring words and messages of support reinforce that they face their challenges with our entire Alumni community behind them.
