A closeup of the Penn State College of Medicine logo is seen on the jacket of a white coat, draped over the arm of a medical student who is also holding a White Coat Ceremony program. The student was part of the July 2016 White Coat Ceremony, in which incoming medical students at the College receive their short white coats signifying their status as future doctors.

Alumni mentors work with first-year students from African-American, Latino/Hispanic, Asian and Asian/Pacific- American backgrounds, as well as others who simply want to get their careers off to a fast start. Matches are made in early September based on student interest.

Attend Events

Engage with students who are looking to follow in your footsteps by participating in various College of Medicine events. Connect with fellow alumni at special receptions held around the country in conjunction with a professional conference. Check the full events calendar to learn more.

Give to Scholarships

As self-perpetuating funds, endowments spin off earned interest each year, while the principal is preserved to generate future scholarships. Consequently, the larger the endowment, the more students we can help. 

If you are interested in establishing an alumni endowment, please contact Director of Annual Giving & Alumni Relations Angie Sepela for more information. Also contact Angie to find out if your class already has a scholarship, or if you would like to help develop one. 

To make an immediate impact, give online today.
