Homecoming 2021

Join us for a virtual CME event from September 23-25, 2021.

Updated August 23, 2021

Given the unabating local trends in COVID-19 transmission and hospitalizations, we have made the difficult decision to postpone non-curricular KCU-sponsored indoor events hosting 25 or more external attendees, including our much-anticipated in-person 2021 Homecoming alumni events. We will still be able to hold our annual KCU Homecoming CME, which will move to an all-virtual format, and you will again have 30-day access to all the presentations.

The Alumni Homecoming events - class reunion dinners and the Alumni Awards event - are postponed until a later date.

If you registered for in-person events, a refund will be credited back to the card you used. If you registered for CME, you will remain registered for CME. If you would like specific information regarding refunds, please email Kerrie Jordan. For more information, visit the CME registration page
