VUSM Commencement 2009
Degrees conferred on May 9, 2009
Graduation takes place each year on the second Friday morning of May. Students and faculty participate in a University wide ceremony, followed by a separate Medical School ceremony in Langford Auditorium. Candidates receive the hood of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, and degrees are then conferred by the Dean, sometimes with the aid of proud physician parents. Selected faculty members serve as marshals, and the pomp and circumstance is awe-inspiring.
