Congratulations Class of 2021!

Under regular circumstances, your family, friends and loved ones would meet in-person for the College of Medicine Class of 2021 banquet and ceremony. This year, we have shifted our approach for the event for everyone's safety, while still marking the completion of your undergraduate medical education training with the College of Medicine.

On Thursday, June 3, the Class of 2021 MD Virtual Ceremony will be livestreamed so the College of Medicine community can witness this significant moment.
