The Medical Student Alumni Council (MedSAC) helps to enhance the relationship between current medical students and College of Medicine alumni through various events and initiatives.

Traditionally, the MedSAC executive board meets 2 times/year and helps to sponsor events coordinated by the College of Medicine Alumni office that bring students and alumni together - Maurice “Mo” Mullet Medical Student-Alumni Forum, Women in White Coats, and Meet the Doctors, to name a few.

MSAC History

The Medical Student Alumni Council started in 2000, with a meeting of three medical students (Froylan Gonzalez; Paul Krummen, and Leah Brown) and alumni office staff at that time. The focus of the meeting was to discuss ways to enhance the relationship between the medical students and the Medical Alumni Society.

Several excellent suggestions were made at this meeting and a new council was organized to maintain the link between the Medical Alumni Society and the current medical stud​ents. A Constitution and By-laws for The Medical Student Alumni Council was also written at that time.

In February 2001, the first “official” meeting of the council was held in Meiling Hall and 35 students attended.
