The UW Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation has been successfully training physicians for over 65 years. We embrace transition; while at the same time maintain a respect for our roots. As we adapt to changes in both medicine and academics, we are guided by the desire to accept new challenges and grow from them. This fundamental security is what will allow us to move swiftly and confidently into the future.
It is our hope that each of our alumni will remain connected to the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Rehabilitation Medicine. Your support is invaluable to present and future students at the UW Medical School. One important way alumni can exercise support is to contribute to various funds established within the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Rehabilitation Medicine.
Please know that we value your friendship, your gifts to the school, and your accomplishments as graduates. We hope you will keep in touch through attending alumni events, through your phone calls, or through other methods. Thank you for being a stellar representative of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Rehabilitation Medicine.
