Medical grads rekindle old friendships

Reuniting graduatesGrowing up: Members of the medical class of 1995 gathered at the Medical School for their 15th anniversary reunion.

The Faculty of Health Sciences kicked off its annual round of reunions when the medical classes of 1995 and 1970 reunited in Cape Town on 19 and 26 November, respectively.

As per usual, alumni from across the globe make their way to these very successful homecomings, travelling from as far afield as Namibia, Canada, the US, the UK, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and Israel. The graduates are usually joined by former teachers and Medical School executives.

And as has also become custom, each class enjoys a full programme stretched over three days, including a registration cocktail, tours around their old stomping grounds at the medical campus and Groote Schuur Hospital (and other attractions), a morning of academic presentations (so it's work and play), a gala dinner and a closing Sunday afternoon rendezvous.

Two more reunions are lined up for the coming weekends - the class of 1985 comes together over 3 to 5 December, and the class of 1960 from 10 to 12 December.
