Alumni

Mont Reid Surgical Society

The Mont Reid Surgical Society of the University of Cincinnati, founded in 1950, is composed of graduates of the general surgery training program who are active in encouraging professional fellowship among the alumni to advance the art and science of surgery. The Society assists the current resident staff and the Department through funding, lectures, symposiums, publications, and other programs.

The Mont Reid Surgical Society has education as one of its cornerstone goals and launched a Campaign to aid the Department in continuing to provide an outstanding educational experience for residents. Thanks to the generous donations of its members, the Mont Reid Campaign has now reached over $100,000. This money is used to assist the Department with funding for residents to attend meetings and other educational endeavors. The Society also provides financial assistance as needed to residents in the general surgery training program in the form of a loan which bears no interest during the training period or for the first three years after completion of training.

The Society meets annually at the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress where members can renew or make new acquaintances. In addition, the Society holds reunions every few years with both social and academic activities at the UC Department of Surgery. A newsletter is sent periodically to update members on various activities and events.
