The latest news from your UT Health Science Center
The University of Tennessee Health Science Center

  Greetings from Memphis November 2016  
During this time of year, we want to say "thank you" to our alumni. The UT Health Science Center is truly fortunate to have alumni who represent us so well.

You serve as ambassadors for the campus with your healthcare colleagues, future students, the legislature and your communities. Through the care you provide to your patients, you demonstrate the quality of a UT Health Science Center education and for that we are grateful.

We enjoyed spending time with members of the Class of 1966 and others at our recent Golden Graduate Homecoming. It was a wonderful occasion for classmates to reconnect and reminisce about their time on campus. We hope you will all consider coming back for a class reunion when the opportunity comes along.

In addition to reunions, there are many other opportunities for you to be involved. For more information, our calendar of events is available online.

The UT Alumni Association has a new Career Guide Directory. Go to and learn more about how you can connect with alumni from across the UT system.

Again, thank you for everything you do to support your college and the UT Health Science Center as a whole. We hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season!
