The Memorial Hospital International Alumni Directory, formerly a biennially printed book, has been converted to an online directory, allowing you to search for fellow alumni in a variety of ways -- by medical specialty, years of residency and/or fellowship, or by title and department. Not only does this ensure continuity of care for patients who are relocating, but it provides you with an easily navigable way to directly connect with both active and retired Memorial Hospital staff.
