About MSK Alumni

MSK alumni are vital ambassadors for MSK—and living examples of the far-reaching impact of MSK’s work and dedication to training world-class physicians.

Founded in 1975, the MSK Alumni Society brings together an exceptional group of approximately 4,000 oncologists, surgeons, radiation therapists, chemotherapists, and pathologists who represent Memorial Sloan Kettering in 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and 48 countries.

The MSK Alumni Society shares MSK’s commitment to the progressive control and cure of cancer by fostering continued communication and consultation with alumni. To further this mission, the MSK Alumni Society provides complete access to a directory of MSK-trained physicians, which includes their areas of professional expertise and current locations.


To qualify for membership in the MSK Alumni Society, you must be one of the following:

  • A physician, dentist, or allied scientist who has completed no less than six months of professional training at MSK
  • A physician trained elsewhere who has served on our staff for no less than six months

All alumni are encouraged to make philanthropic gifts to MSK — in lieu of annual dues — to advance alumni community initiatives, foster strong leadership and expertise, and accelerate research innovations that optimize patient care.


You will receive an annual edition of Alumni Notes, the MSK Alumni Society newsletter, as well as MSKNews, MSK’s quarterly newsletter.

In addition, you will receive invitations to register for exclusive Alumni Society events.
