College of Medicine

The College of Medicine Alumni Association has been in existence since the first class of medical school students graduated. The original association was formally established in 1883. Dr. J.W. Search, a 1882 graduate, was its first president.

The purpose of the College of Medicine Alumni Association is to promote and support the philosophy and programs of the UNMC College of Medicine, to maintain communication of alumni through Alumni News, reunions and special events, to promote life-long learning of alumni, to encourage activities that help to recognize individuals and organizations who provide meritorious service and to encourage promotion of the profession of medicine by alumni.

The volunteer board provides the direction for the association. The COMAA has been providing annual giving support to the College of Medicine for many years. The association officially began an annual giving program in 1970.

If you have any questions or are interested in participating in the Chapter, please email or call 402.559.4385.
