Department of Medicine Alumni Newsletter

When it comes to our alumni, there are many reasons for us to be proud. Over the last 100 years, our graduates have had a tremendous impact on medicine and health care today. From the first administration of insulin in 1921 to critical advances in big data that predict outbreaks and inform medical decision-making today — our alumni and faculty have made, and continue to make, significant and meaningful contributions to health care worldwide.

Take a Look Back at the Last 100 Years of the Department of Medicine
