Alumni Week(end): Campus to Couch Edition

Every September, we spend an extended weekend celebrating UAlberta grads. This year, because of COVID-19, we are unable to get together in person. So, we are bringing Alumni Weekend to you!

We have a great lineup of lectures, tours, family-friendly content and more! All spread out
over a full week to allow you to get your full fix of campus content. All from the comfort of your couch!

Festival of Health

Join the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at our annual Festival of Health celebration where we pull back the curtain and give community members a behind-the-scenes look at the amazing work our faculty does. Learn about the latest research and activities of our faculty through interactive booths, rapid-fire presentations, learning sessions, tours and more!
Details for 2021 will be available later this year.

Resident Connect

Residency is an exciting time full of new experiences and opportunities, but it can also be a time of stress and uncertainty. We want to help our newest alumni succeed as they face the challenges of starting a new journey. The Resident Connect events bring young alumni together with more established alumni who understand the journey and can provide insights and support. Attendees can look forward to an inspiring talk by a local alumnus followed by a mixer over drinks and appetizers.
