We would like to extend our congratulations to all students of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai participating in the Commencement ceremonies happening this week.

Commencement is the culmination of our academic year and a most important milestone for our graduating students. It provides an opportunity for faculty, students, and alumni to join together in celebration of our graduating MD, PhD, and Masters students, to recognize their hard work and dedication to health care.

To fully acknowledge and celebrate the accomplishments of all students, we separated the commencement ceremonies this year into two events. Both ceremonies will be held in David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center. Splitting the ceremonies will allow us to personalize each event in ways that have not previously been possible.
