Virtual Event: Commencement 2020
May 17, 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Penn State College of Medicine will hold commencement as scheduled on Sunday, May 17, at 1 p.m. This year, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will take place virtually.
Penn State President Eric Barron, Keynote Speaker Dr. Valerie Williams and Interim Dean Dr. Kevin Black will still share words of wisdom with the graduates, as will each class’s student speaker.
Dr. Black said it best in a recent communication to the students: “While this is an unprecedented time for our graduates, and one you will remember for years to come, I hope you find value in having been a part of an extraordinary organization doing extraordinary work amid extraordinary circumstances. The efforts and experiences you put forth during your tenure at the College of Medicine will lay the foundation for what lies ahead. You stand Penn State proud, secure in the knowledge that you have given your all and will continue to do so into the future.”
