Honored Alumni

Our alumni live to make a difference, whether they practice in clinics or research labs, serve as professors, or work in remote clinics in mission hospitals in countries around the world.

Each year the Alumni Association honors esteemed alumni, sharing highlights of their lifetime dedication and achievements. The 2019 honored alumni are as follows:

  • Barbara C. McKinney ’88
  • L. Bruce Ham ’74
  • Linda J. Mason ’74

The secret Alumnus of the Year Award will also be presented during the APC Gala. Be sure to join us for the evening to discover who it is.


The APC Gala’s evening’s entertainment will be a series of instrumental and vocal performances performed by fourth-year medical students. These soon-to-be alumni are not only gifted clinicians but are also world-class, talented musicians.

Student Stories

While each medical student brings unique life experience to Loma Linda, stories about several members of the graduating class will be showcased through video presentations during the APC Gala.
