Are you coming home this year?

MDCM alumni, is this your year to come home?

At McGill Medicine, we are extremely proud of our longstanding Homecoming tradition. Every year in October, hundreds of our MDCM alumni from around the world return to campus for a weekend of fun-filled and thought-provoking activities, ranging from cocktail parties and reunion class dinners to open houses and guided tours.

Homecoming is an opportunity to reunite with former classmates and forge new connections while exploring ways to further leave your mark on your alma mater. This year, we celebrate graduation years ending in 3 and 8.

Please find below the schedule of events for our Medicine alumni. Once you have signed up for these events—including, of course, for your Reunion Class Dinner—remember to check out the wide array of Homecoming events open to all McGill alumni
