The 2013 School of Medicine Facts & Figures cards are now available -- these are printed (two-fold) versions of our facts webpage. They are typically used by departments, ORUs, centers and school and campus units for outreach, in recruitment packages, and for general publicity. The cards are provided to any unit on campus at no cost as long as supplies last. If you would like a batch, please pick them up at the SOM Dean's Office, S-224, or contact Sandy Butler.
