Events

In the Office for Student Affairs we coordinate major student events including Orientation, the White Coat Ceremony, Match Day, Commencement, Convocation, SINAInnovations, and Research Day.

We offer orientation for first-year students the week before classes begin and introduce you to all the aspects of student life at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, including the curriculum, campus, community, faculty, staff, and our wide range of resources available to you.

Our White Coat Ceremony marks student initiation into professional training. You and your classmates will be "coated" and will take an oath to uphold scientific excellence and the compassionate care of patients. We invite your family and friends to attend.

 

Convocation marks the beginning of the academic year for Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. During the ceremony leadership shares the institution's strategic vision and the state of the School.

We hold Medical Student Research Day each spring to showcase and disseminate new knowledge contributed by students through their investigative activities.

After four or more years of hard work, you and your fellow students attend Match Day to find out where you will spend the next phase of medical training. Each student receives an envelope containing residency information. Family, friends, faculty, and staff attend the festivities to celebrate with you.

We celebrate Commencement in May. The event applauds the accomplishments of our graduating students. We bestow hoods and degrees as you walk across the stage of Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center.

Every year, we host the SINAInnovations conference, aimed at redefining how innovation is taught, incentivized, and facilitated within an academic medical center. The conference features speakers from a cross section of specialties, so that we can apply lessons learned from other industries to biotechnology.
