Alumni Across the Country

Medical Alumni Relations, a unit within the Office of Student Affairs, created an interactive map of all HWCOM alumni nationwide and will be constantly updated. You can search by name, specialty, residency program, or location. This map was created with the intent to assist students, especially M4s, with locating their fellow alumni easily. To maintain alumni privacy, their contact information will not be published. However, over 70 have already agreed to share their contact information with current and future M4 students.
