Alumni Association

The Weill Cornell Medical College Alumni Association (WCMCAA) was founded in 1904 shortly after the fifth class of medical students graduated from the Medical College. In 1933, the WCMC Alumni Association became incorporated and today remains steadfast in support of the Medical College's goals, mission, and strategic priorities.

With more than 5,600 living alumni, including many distinguished physicians and physician-scientists, the graduates of Weill Cornell represent an illustrious network. Alumni dedication, energy, and generosity help to enrich the student experience and life and culture of Weill Cornell on campus and beyond.
