Family Weekend (second annual!): August 22–23

The Medical School invites students’ parents and other family members to attend a series of informative and entertaining events August 22–23 during Family Weekend. It’s a great time for families to connect with their students in their new surroundings at the Medical School while hearing from faculty members and exploring the Twin Cities campus. The event culminates in the White Coat Ceremony, during which new students receive their first white coats, at 2 p.m. Friday, August 23, in Northrop Auditorium.
