Message from the Dean

Last Friday, we sent off our Class of 2021, graduating our M.D., Ph.D., master’s and certificate students. It was a day of untraditional traditions as we hosted both our Advanced Degree Recognition and M.D. Hooding ceremonies both in person and online. After more than a year of necessary distance, it was heartening to be able to congratulate many of our graduates face to face on their achievements and perseverance during this time of great disruption while their friends, family, colleagues and mentors celebrated virtually.

Congratulations to our 2021 Graduates

Our Commitment to Diversity

Diversity is absolutely essential at a research university, just as it is in life. It is an indispensable part of the learning process. It shapes what we learn and how we learn it, how we solve problems, how we interact with one another, and how we think about ourselves and each other.
