       The next several pages detail our 133rd Medical Alumni Reunion held last May. I’m pleased to report that more than 800 alumni, faculty, students, and friends attended the three-day event highlighted by our awards luncheon, historical clinicopathological conference, crabfeast, and class reunion parties. A span of 85 years of our medical school classes celebrated together, as first-year students from the class of 2011 mingled with Dr. Paul Schenker, a member of the class of 1926 and our oldest living graduate! It was a joyous occasion.
It is truly an honor to serve as president of the oldest independent medical alumni association in the United States. Since 1875 the MAA has served as the primary communications link between the school and its graduates as well as keeping alumni connected with each other. We do so by publishing a quarterly magazine now known as the Medicine Bulletin, hosting regional receptions, and staging an annual reunion. Our data base maintains the most up-to-date information we have on graduates, and our website ( is only a click away from connecting with the alumni office for all the latest updates about our association and school. The beauty of our organization is the magnitude of the volunteerism. In addition to our 14-member board, we have more than 100 alumni actively involved in the activities of the association each year. Whether it’s generating ideas for upcoming issues of the Bulletin magazine as a member of the editorial board, overseeing conservation of Davidge Hall by sitting on the restoration committee, or planning for a class reunion, our alumni colleagues take great pride in upholding a standard of excellence set years ago by our predecessors. I encourage you to join us in our work for this great medical school. We’re only a click away!

Ronald Goldner received his undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy in 1960. Upon receiving his MD from Maryland in 1965, he interned at Maryland General Hospital and received residency training in dermatology at Maryland. After serving for two years in the U.S. Air Force,
he returned to Maryland to open a dermatology practice with offices in Baltimore City and Westminster, Maryland. In 2007, Goldner joined the faculty at Maryland as a clinical professor and associate director
for the dermatology residency training program. He also maintains a private practice through Maryland’s dermatology clinic with a special interest in contact dermatitis.

Our Medical Alumni Association

Mission: The Medical Alumni Association of the University of Maryland, Inc., in continuous operation since 1875, is an independent charitable organization dedicated to supporting the University of Maryland School of Medicine and Davidge Hall.

: The board consists of five officers and nine board members. Each year more than 100 alumni participate on its seven standing committees and 13 reunion committees.

: Annual dues are $85. Dues are waived for emeritus members (graduated more than 50 years or have reached 70 years of age) and newly graduated alumni, and reduced to $25 for alumni in training. Revenues support salaries for two full-time and five part-time employees, as well as general office expenses to maintain the alumni data base; produce the quarterly Medicine Bulletin magazine; stage social events for alumni and students (including the annual Reunion); administer the revolving student loan funds; and oversee conservation work on Davidge Hall and maintain its museum.

Annual Fund
: The association administers the annual fund on behalf of the medical school. Gift revenues support student loans and scholarships, lectureships, professorships, capital projects—including Davidge Hall conservation—plus direct support to the various departments and unrestricted support to the dean.
