Alumni will relive their days on the Happy Island and network with former classmates, professors, and Clinical Chairs.

Why should I attend the Alumni Global Meet?
Those who attended the Alumni Global Meet last year found it to be an overall positive experience.
As an Xavier alumni or clinical student, you can help your fellow Xavier comrades and provide them with useful advice as they continue their medical school journeys. Share your experiences, challenges, and excitements with others who can learn from you. Help educate the next set of Xavier graduates so they are prepared for life after medical school.
Reconnecting with faculty members is another exciting element of the Alumni Global Meet, both for the alumni and the faculty members who helped shape them into the doctors they are now. Faculty members want to see what alumni have achieved since graduating, and the Meet allows for a face-to-face connection.
The Clinical Chairs’ attendance at the Global Meet is a valuable networking opportunity for alumni and students alike. It can also help better prepare basic science students for clinicals as they learn more about the process from the doctors themselves.
Special guest residency directors will teach both students and alumni about various topics in the field of medicine. Directors can educate students on what it takes to Match, and alumni can learn about careers in medicine after residency.
Not only does the Alumni Global Meet provide all of these learning and networking opportunities, but it is also the chance to come back to the island of Aruba and have a nice weekend there!
