Elliot Lasser Alumni Society

The Elliott Lasser Society is the alumni association of the UC San Diego Radiology Residency. Named after Dr. Elliott Lasser, MD, Professor Emeritus of Radiology, and former Chair of Radiology at UCSD, the association hosts annual alumni events like Alumni Day where current residents and fellows can gather with former trainees and staff at the department. The alumni also sponsors a medical student scholarship for a UCSD Medical Student interested in pursuing Radiology as a career.
