“Your class witnessed the beginning of the pandemic with its inherent uncertainties, going from in-person learning to online almost overnight,” said Michael M.I. Abecassis, MD, MBA, dean of the college. “You had a front-row seat to tragic outcomes, but also to the wonders of medicine, from diagnosis to treatment. What a ride you’ve had!”

Degrees were conferred by University of Arizona President Robert C. Robbins, MD, and Dean Abecassis administered the Hippocratic Oath to the graduates.
