Letter from Associate Dean for Alumni Affairs

By Ann H. Price, M.D. Associate Dean for Alumni Affairs, School of Medicine
February 2012

Dear Vanderbilt University Medical Alumni,

The VMAA is proud to welcome the Class of 2015 as our newest group of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine students. The Class of 2015 had an excellent White Coat Ceremony in August. Many thanks to all our medical alumni, faculty and friends who sponsored white coats for all 104 of our new students.

Now the cycle of residency applications, interviewing, matching, graduating, and moving for residency training is in full swing for the VUSM Class of 2012. If you live in a city with a major academic medical center with active residency programs, please consider joining the 300+ medical alumni who serve as VMAA Hosts for residency interviews. Learn more about the VMAA Host Program by visiting: www.medschool.vanderbilt.edu/alumni/hostprogram. If you have questions about the VMAA Host Program, please do not hesitate to contact me at: ann.price@vanderbilt.edu.
