The Hooding Ceremony formally acknowledges the achievements of these students and, through the administration of the Hippocratic Oath or Physician's Oath, reminds the students of the high standards of performance and behavior to which each aspires and with which each is challenged as they enter upon professional careers as physicians.

Each graduate will receive 7 tickets for their friends and family to attend the ceremony. More information about tickets will be provided in the weeks before the ceremony.
