About the Ceremony
The students graduating in 2024 are the 75th class to receive the degree of Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) from the University of Washington. The Physician’s Oath & Hooding Ceremony 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.
