The Graduate School of Biomedical Science Recognition Ceremony

Members of the UMass Medical School scientific community, including students and faculty from all three schools, gather to recognize the accomplishments of their future colleagues.

The Qualifying Exam marks an important milestone in the educational and professional development of basic science and clinical research graduate students, the transition from classroom-based learning to candidacy for a doctoral degree. Our ceremony recognizes those who have successfully completed the exam and are proceeding with thesis research in the laboratory of their faculty advisor.
