The McGill Faculty of Medicine’s 2014 Homecoming was held on and around campus from October 16-18, 2014. The three days were filled with various events and festivities from the CME Seminar to a Faculty Open House to Class luncheons and dinners. Homecoming culminated with All Those Nights in Montreal, a cocktail event held at Le Windsor for all Classes on the Saturday night.
Here is a look at some of the highlights of Homecoming through pictures.
