Virginia Medicine September 2021
Welcome, SMD’24 and SMD’25
The UVA Medical Alumni Association was pleased to present two White Coat Ceremonies, endowed by the Class of 1965, on August 13, 2021.
Students in the Class of 2024 received their official welcome to the School of Medicine in the day’s first ceremony, followed by the Class of 2025 later in the afternoon. Although SMD’24 students matriculated in 2020, their White Coat Ceremony was delayed for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
You’ll find photos and videos from both ceremonies here.
