50 Years of Medicine: An Overview of the Past, Future

During its 50th year, the Long School of Medicine honors founding leaders and faculty members and its first graduates who began a history of excellence at the fledgling medical school.


Dr. Michael Brennan, Class of 1978

Dr. Michael Brennan, Class of 1978, Named 2018 Distinguished Alumnus

Growing up in Wisconsin, Michael W. Brennan’s father wanted him to be a priest. His mother, who knew this wasn’t the best vocation for their energetic son, was afraid he would end up a farmer. As a farmer’s daughter, she knew her son wasn’t cut out for the tractor.
