The MD Anderson Alumni & Faculty Association hosts a number of events over the course of the year.

Since 1984, the Steering Committee of the MD Anderson Alumni & Faculty Association has been charged with nominating the recipients of the annual Distinguished Alumnus Award (pdf) and the Mike Hogg Award (pdf).

The Alumni & Faculty Association also hosts an annual reception at the AACR Annual Meeting each spring for alumni, colleagues, faculty and trainees.

An important component of the Alumni & Faculty Association is its support of educational trainees and students. The Trainee Excellence Awards and Trainee Research Day are programs in which trainees may become involved for research recognition or for career development.
