It's time to celebrate our graduates!

In honor of graduates, award recipients, and faculty development, we would like your photos and videos for the 2020 Commencement Celebration to be featured in Sutori, a digital keepsake album. That's right, hype it up! You only graduate from residency and fellowship once, and we are going to miss you. So grab your family members and take a celebratory video or photo and post it online with the hashtag #UMNfamilymedgrad or send it to fmchcomm@umn.edu. Use any of the following social media: YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or TikTok.
