The class of 1961 Medical School graduates came together from various corners around the world to attend a reunion in Cambridge.

Held over the weekend of 26-28 October 2007, it was the fifth event the class have held since they graduated. Organised by Professor Bob Berrington and Dr Roy Devine, they aimed to prove that "70 is the new 50"!

Those who attended, some travelling from as far away as Philadelphia, Vancouver, Toronto and Australia, had enjoyed a great variety of careers in hospital medicine, general practice and academic life. Memories of student experiences, first class clinical teaching and camaraderie on the wards were shared throughout the day whilst sightseeing in Cambridge.

A formal dinner rounded off the reunion, with alumnus Sir Michael Bond introducing special guest Zosia Kmietowitcz, a medical journalist and niece of the late Henry Kmietowitcz, a popular student of the year who was tragically killed in his fourth year. A vote of thanks was given and the evening ended with a round of musical entertainment. The group vowed to meet up again for another reunion in two years time.
