Congratulations, #WashU24!

Bagpipes, flashing cameras and smiling faces ushered in the graduating Class of 2024 at the MD Commencement & Recognition Ceremony.

Keynote speaker

Dean Schillinger, MD, is a primary care physician, scientist, author, and public health advocate who is widely recognized as an expert in health communication and for his work related to improving the health of marginalized populations.

How it started…

The MD Class of 2024 began their medical school journeys at their White Coat Ceremony, where incoming students receive their white coats and then take an oath — one they have written as a class — dedicating themselves to their patients and profession.

How it’s going…

The Class of 2024 became the first to fully experience the Gateway Curriculum all the way to Match Day, after adjusting to a sometimes dizzying, pandemic-induced mix of online, hybrid and in-person learning, and adapting to a new curriculum’s emphasis on early clinical immersion and a more holistic view of patients and the profession.
