Annual Events

A student's medical school career is marked by milestones and achievements. Our annual events allow us the opportunity to reflect with pride on these achievements and recognize the amazing accomplishments of our students.

Welcome to the University of Minnesota Medical School, our community and the medical profession! Your journey starts with a week of orientation to the school, meeting your new classmates and learning what you need to get started

An annual tradition marking a medical student's entry into the medical profession. This ceremony presents each new medical student with their first white coat, the ultimate symbol of profession.

Your MD degree is just the start. Next stop: residency! Match Day is a national day (traditionally always on the third Friday in March) where students will learn where they “matched” into residency and where they will be going in the next phase of their continuous medical education.

You made it!
