The ceremony will be pre-recorded and ‘premiere’ on YouTube at 9am EST on Sunday, May 17th. This means at 9am the recording will begin, and everyone watching will be viewing the same moment. It will be available afterward to replay for friends and family. We anticipate the program will last approximately one hour. During the ceremony, Dr. Morris will read your names as he would in person, and your photo, specialty, and residency program will appear on screen. You will receive the link for viewing as May 17th approaches, and you may share with as many friends and family members as you wish.

The Recitation of the Oath:

While you will be asked to recite the oath in your own home during the program, we invite you to call in to a PSOM student and faculty bluejeans meeting at 11am following the program for live remarks from Dean Jameson, Dean Rose, Dr. Morris, and Dr. Bennett. Dr. Bennett will lead the beginning and end of oath once more, and you will be able to fully participate in real time over your device.
