The PCOM Alumni Association was formed on September 8, 1902, two years after the first physician graduated from Philadelphia College and Infirmary of Osteopathy. The purpose of the Alumni Association is to act as a liaison between the College and its more than 17,800 alumni who practice throughout the United States, in six foreign countries and in every branch of the military service. In addition, the Association promotes PCOM to prospective students and provides financial support for excellence in osteopathic and healthcare education. Effective July 1, 2016, the Alumni Association was integrated as a department of the College after many years of operating as a separate organization. The business of the PCOM Alumni Association is managed by the Executive Council. In addition, the Association Board is composed of three other councils: the DO Council, the Professional Careers Council and the Trainee Council. Meetings are held twice a year in January and June. All alumni of Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine are members of the Alumni Association. Throughout the year, the Alumni Association sponsors programs that benefit its members and current students. An active interest is taken in student life.
Contributions to the Alumni Association support critical student programs, services and activities. Special endowed funds include: Alumni Association Endowed Activities Fund, the Albert D’Alonzo DO Endowed Memorial Fund, the International Fellowship Endowed Award, the Alumni Association Endowed Commencement Award, the Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship and the Alumni Association Endowed Student Travel Fund.
