On May 7, UICOMP welcomed 66 new doctors to the UICOMP alumni family during the Convocation ceremony at the Peoria Civic Center. After a two-year pause to the traditional in-person Convocation ceremony, the event allowed the class to celebrate their four-year journey through unprecedented times.

The graduates marched in together, received their hoods and diplomas, and heard the addresses from Executive Dean Mark Rosenblatt, MD; Regional Dean Meenakshy Aiyer, MD; Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Jessica Hanks, MD; faculty speaker Jonathon Fisher, PhD; and the class remarks by Douglas Grow, MD.

UICOMP faculty joined in the procession to support the graduates, and guests of the class attended to support their new MDs.

Congratulations to the Class of 2022!
