Stanford Medicine’s Class of 2017 to graduate on Saturday

On Saturday, Stanford Medicine’s graduating class will walk away from campus with a new title: Doctor.

The day of celebration begins with a commencement brunch for graduates and guests, with the diploma ceremony following at 1 p.m. Augustus White III, MD, PhD, the first African-American to graduate from Stanford's medical school, will be this year’s speaker. A professor at Harvard Medical School who served as its orthopedic surgeon-in-chief for 13 years, White now focuses on how prejudice can get in the way of good medicine.

We’ll be sharing photos of the activities on the school’s Instagram and Facebook page; if you have any to share, be sure to use the hashtags #StanfordMedicine and #Stanford17.

Congratulations in advance to all the new doctors!
