Celebrating our Doctor of Medicine Class of 2020
May 28, 2020
Congratulations to our students who are receiving their Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree! 
This is definitely not the way we planned on celebrating your terrific achievements. You had likely planned celebrations with family, friends and of course your fellow classmates.

The entire Faculty of Medicine extends to you our sincerest congratulations! It has been a pleasure working with each one of you to achieve your goals. We wish you continued success as your move on to the next stage of your medical training and your future medical careers. 

To celebrate this special occasion, please take a moment to watch this celebration video created for you, our MD class of 2020. Special thanks to the faculty and staff who spent many hours to make this video possible.
