The Chicago Medical School is pleased to announce our biggest alumni reunion to date. We invite all reunion classes from 2020, 2021 and 2022 to save Friday–Sunday, September 16–18, 2022 for CMS Alumni Reunion 2022!

As we come together to celebrate your reunion we invite you to honor this occasion with a gift to support current and future CMS students.

At Chicago Medical School, making an impact is in our DNA. By making a class reunion gift, you will make an immediate impact and empower a new generation of medical professionals who will go on to lead in interprofessional health care. For the last century, Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science has worked in collaboration with partners, like you, to improve lives for the better. Together, we are ensuring that we will continue to shape the future of health care for the better — now and always.

Inspire Others! Consider creating a CHALLENGE for your classmates, or make a MATCH for your classmates. Both CHALLENGES and MATCHES are easy and rewarding. 

You can also share your CMS memories with an update or you can become an advocate by creating your own video, send it to your classmates encouraging them to participate in this milestone reunion with a gift!

Other Ways to Give
​Special Reunion Matching Gift Opportunity for members of CMS Classes of 1980, 1981, 1982: Agnes D. Lattimer, MD '54 Memorial Endowed Scholarship Matching Gift Challenge

The Agnes D. Lattimer, MD '54 Memorial Endowed Scholarship Matching Gift Challenge was created by an anonymous donor who offers members of the CMS Classes of 1980, 1981 and 1982 the opportunity to contribute to this endowed fund by matching dollar for dollar donations of $1,000 or more.   

Agnes D. Lattimer was the first woman and African American to be named a CMS Distinguished Alumnus. She faced the triple obstacles of poverty, sexism, and racism, yet she refused to be discouraged. As she said, 

"No obstacles could deter me from my purpose. Not the negative attitudes of others, not lack of money, nor lack of encouragement from outside my family; nothing could dissuade me from my goal." 

Dr. Lattimer, who passed away in 2019, entered CMS in 1950 as one of only two women and the only African American in her class. Lack of financial resources had forced her to turn down acceptance at a medical college in her home state of Tennessee. She then came to Chicago and worked as a housekeeper for 18 months to earn enough money to attend CMS. Dr. Lattimer spent her more than three-decade career as a board certified pediatrician and physician executive leading systemic change in the medical treatment of Chicago’s poor.

To make your match-qualifying gift to the Lattimer Memorial Endowed Scholarship that removes barriers to education, promotes diversity in our classrooms and fuels the drive toward a medical culture that better represents a multicultural society, click here.
