undreds of alumni from across the country returned to campus March 1–3 for Medical Alumni Weekend 2024.

The festivities began Friday evening with the Miller School Alumni Association Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Jeffrey Jacobs, M.D. ’88, professor of surgery and a cardiac surgeon at the University of Florida, is the 31st alumnus to receive the Hall of Fame honor. The prestigious award is presented to alumni who have achieved national or international recognition for their impact on the medical profession.

Henri R. Ford, M.D., M.H.A., dean and chief academic officer, spoke passionately about the crucial role alumni play in elevating the Miller School to national prominence. “You are living proof of the amazing effects of the quality of the education that the Miller School provides,” he said.

Following the Hall of Fame ceremony, attendees were treated to a welcome reception at the Penthouse at Riverside Wharf. They reconnected and reminisced with one another as they enjoyed the views of the illuminated Miami skyline.

On Saturday, alumni visited the Miller School campus, some for the first time in more than 10 years, for tours led by current students. That night, Superblue Miami was the setting for another event as alumni and guests took in the museum’s immersive, interactive exhibits while enjoying hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.

The weekend culminated with a special Sunday brunch at the Lowe’s Coral Gables for those whose classes celebrated a milestone year.

The weekend not only celebrated the achievements of the past but also laid the foundation for the success and growth of the university, fueled by the unwavering support and legacy of its distinguished alumni.
