About the ceremony

The students graduating in 2020 are the 71st class to receive the degree of Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) from the University of Washington. The Physician’s Oath & Hooding Ceremony formally acknowledges the achievements of our medical students. Through the administration of the Hippocratic Oath or Physician’s Oath, the ceremony reminds the students of the high standards of performance and behavior to which each aspires and with which each is challenged as they enter upon professional careers as physicians.

Each graduate will receive 7 tickets for their friends and family to attend the ceremony. More information about tickets will be provided in the weeks before the ceremony. For questions about the Physician’s Oath & Hooding Ceremony, contact Student Affairs at 206.616.8221.
