Virginia Medicine January 2023
Congratulations to the Class of 2025
The Class of 2025 and faculty of the University of Virginia School of Medicine gathered for the Student Clinician and Awards Ceremony on December 16. The annual event, previously held in February, marks the completion of the pre-clerkship part of the medical school curriculum.
During the ceremony, the Class of 2012 John Edward Jones Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Claire Thomas. The award was endowed by the class to honor the memory of their classmate who died in a tragic caving accident during his second year at UVA. This scholarship recognizes outstanding medical students entering their third year of medical school who have demonstrated leadership efforts to eliminate health care inequalities and to address the educational, health care and societal needs of minorities in the US.
Congratulations to Claire and all of this year’s student and faculty honorees!
