44th Annual Magee Alumni Day

September 20, 2019

For this year’s Magee Alumni Day program, we have an exciting line-up of speakers consisting of past and current faculty and former residents. The program will feature updates on clinical care over the entire age spectrum of our patients. We expect the program to present topics that pose challenging clinical, technical, ethical and financial issues that today’s OB/GYN often faces, whether in practice or in an academic career. The program features endowed lectures – the Cohen, McCall, OB/GYN Legacy, Katz Minimally Invasive Surgery and the Alan Kunschner Memorial lectures.
