Each spring, the University of South Alabama College of Medicine recognizes students for their academic achievements at the annual Honors Convocation ceremony.
This year’s College of Medicine Honors Convocation for the Class of 2017 will be held May 5, 2017, at 7 p.m. at the USA Mitchell Center.
“Our Honors Convocation ceremony provides an opportunity to celebrate the academic and leadership accomplishments of our graduating medical students,” said Dr. John Marymont, vice president for medical affairs and dean of the USA College of Medicine. “It also provides an occasion to acknowledge our outstanding faculty for their contributions to student success and achievement.”
Doctoral hoods, along with the student honors, will be awarded to the medical students at Honors Convocation. Faculty will be honored by the students as well. The seniors selected those members of the faculty who had the most meaningful impact on their medical education, and for their positive influence, the faculty selected will wear a red sash over their academic regalia.
Dr. T.J. Hundley, assistant dean for medical education and student affairs and associate professor of internal medicine at the USA College of Medicine, will deliver the address to the class.
A reception for students, guests and faculty will follow.
