The School of Medicine 2021 Virtual Graduation Ceremony took place on Thursday, May 20 at 1:00 pm ET. You can watch a recording of the ceremony here.
This special occasion included a keynote delivery from Dr. Victor Dzau, President of the National Academy of Medicine, Vice Chair of the National Research Council, Chancellor Emeritus and James B. Duke Professor of Medicine at Duke University, and the past President and CEO of the Duke University Health System. In addition to remarks from Dean E. Albert Reece and selected faculty and students, as well as the reading of graduate names and a conferral of degrees, the ceremony included some special features to honor our students.
On Wednesday, May 19, we hosted small private in-person hooding events for graduating students throughout the day. Students were hooded by faculty members that were selected by the class as this year’s hooders and had their photo taken in front of historic Davidge Hall.
Congratulations and best of luck to the Class of 2021!
