Welcome School of Medicine Class of 2025

151 new medical students arrived on campus last week. The School of Medicine Freshman Orientation provided incoming students with the foundation to begin their training as doctors. Students toured the campus, covered financial aid options, discussed safety protocol, and were introduced to the Medical Academic Societies. In addition to an increase in the number of non-traditional students admitted into the School of Medicine, 30% of incoming medical school cohorts are students who are African-American, LatinX, LGBTQ+, military, or from a rural area.
