University of Minnesota Medical School
2020 Commencement Ceremony

Friday, May 1, 2020, 2:00pm to 4:00pm
(Will be held virtually)

Celebrating Virtually

In March, the University of Minnesota announced it would be postponing or canceling this spring’s Commencement ceremonies. Because many of this year's graduates will be moving across the country for residency and the uncertainty of COVID-19, the 2020 Commencement ceremony will not be rescheduled to a later date.

Instead, the Medical School will host Commencement virtually on May 1, 2020. Just like any graduation, each student will be celebrated individually with the reading of their names and a unique addition—photo and video.

Join the YouTube Live Stream - Commencement begins at 2 p.m. on May 1, 2020.

Note: If you didn’t send anything by the April 24 deadline, only your name and your ERAS headshot or White Coat Ceremony photo will be used if available.
