About the Ceremony
The students graduating in 2022 are the 73rd 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.
