Student Highlights

Class Oath Ceremony - May 3, 2016: The Class of 2018 Oath Ceremony marked the transition of medical education from largely classroom instruction to the clinical years. The ceremony included an address by faculty member Dr. Mark Dershwitz, chosen by the class. Alongside this, there were two incredible student speakers, Chioma Okwara and Jim Doolin. This ceremony also included the presentation of Outstanding Medical Educator awards and students’ recitation of the oath they have written.
