Convocation 2021

For the last year now, our activities have been guided by a primary focus on your health and safety, as well as the health and safety of the community, during the COVID pandemic. That same focus applies to our plans for the School of Medicine Convocation 2021. Despite increasing vaccination and decreasing community prevalence, leadership in undergraduate medical education, graduate biomedical education, the Medical Student Senate, and the Graduate Student Association decided to hold an entirely virtual convocation ceremony on May 26, 2021, at 2:30 p.m.
