POHC: Date Confirmed & Regalia Reminder

Quick Update:
The 2020 Physician’s Oath & Hooding Ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 23, 2020. Exact times, streaming logistics, and additional details to be confirmed in the coming days. The website will be updated with more information once those logistics are confirmed.

For those students interested in regalia, you can purchase regalia and other assorted items from the Office of Ceremonies beginning Monday, May 4 (exact opening time TBD, so you should check back throughout the day). We have not seen what the ordering form looks like so we cannot provide you with instructions. Below are items you should be aware of when placing your order:

* If you are hoping to receive it in time for May 23rd, you should order it on May 4th or May 5th – there is a small chance that it may be delivered to you prior to May 23rd.
* If you are hoping to receive it in time for May 23rd, pay for it by credit or debit card only. Do NOT use the account transfer option – that option will delay your order from being submitted by at least 1 week. (The transfer takes 1 week and the order is not submitted until payment clears)
* Historically the order system was based on the events that you selected in the registration form. Select the “School of Medicine” as your first option for graduation events. In years’ past, when students selected it second, the option to purchase MD regalia did not appear.
* If you have questions during the ordering process, you should contact the Office of Ceremonies directly – we do not have access to the form or system to help troubleshoot.
