Commencement

The 2022 MD Commencement is on Saturday, May 21 at 9 AM in the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. The keynote speaker is Dr. Gurpreet Dhaliwal from the University of California San Francisco. This ceremony will honor the Golden Gators class celebrating 50 years (Class of 1972.)

Commencement celebrates the achievement of our medical students earning their MD degree and marks the beginning of their professional careers. The University of Florida’s first class graduated in 1960 with 40 medical students.  Today, our graduating class is over three times that size, and the College of Medicine now has more than 4,000 alumni.
