Alumni Association

All current fellows and full-time faculty members within the Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital are also members of the Paul Dudley White Society, an alumni association and valued tradition at the hospital. The rich and diverse network of alumni includes leaders in cardiology both nationally and internationally and provides a unique opportunity for our current fellows to establish professional networks.
