Letter from the Alumni Association

Dear Fellow Alumni,

Welcome to the VCOM Alumni Association! As the President of the Virginia Alumni Advisory Board, I would like to share with you the many ways you can be involved and support the wonderful opportunities available through the Alumni Association.

Whether you make a monetary donation or donate your time, the support of fellow and future alums will help us all and enable VCOM to continue on as the great educational institution it is today. The Alumni Association offers opportunities for fellowship and allows you to reconnect with classmates. This is your Alumni Association and we are honored to represent you. Take a look at the opportunities listed below and consider how you can be more involved this year.

    Update your contact information to make sure you get timely information about activities and get-togethers.


    Since 2012, we have offered alumni-led CME seminars, fun activities and plenty of fellowship during Homecoming Weekend. Each year at Homecoming, we recognize the class that graduated five years prior. Homecoming 2019 will honor the Reunion Class of 2009 and 2014. Homecoming 2019 is scheduled for the weekend of September 6. Honoring the classes of ’09 ad ’14, but everyone is invited and encouraged to attend. There will be CMEs, a Friday night Family Fun evening at the Hahn Garden at Virginia Tech and on Saturday, a tailgate and football!


    You can volunteer to participate in VCOM’s Appalachian and International Outreach programs by participating the Global Physician Initiative. For more information, contact Thim Corvin at
