Medical School Graduates Participate in Honors Convocation Ceremony
The University of South Alabama held commencement ceremonies for the 2013 College of Medicine graduates on May 11, 2013, marking the 38th class to earn medical degrees from USA.
The day before, the 73 graduates participated in an honors convocation where they were “hooded” by an individual of their choice, signifying the awarding of a doctoral-level degree. During the honors convocation ceremony, students were also recognized for their academic achievements. Both ceremonies took place at the USA Mitchell Center.
Including the 2013 class, 2,336 physicians have graduated from the USA College of Medicine since its opening in 1973. Approximately one-third of the physicians practicing in the Mobile area earned their medical degree from USA or completed residency training in the USA Hospitals System.
