Congratulations to our School of Medicine Class of 2025! What an honor it was to host their White Coat Ceremony last Friday in Jesse Auditorium.

As the Class of 2025 stood together — for the first time — and recited the Declaration of Geneva, their mission was clear. They each pledged to “dedicate my life to the service of humanity… foster the honor and noble traditions of the medical profession… [and] share my medical knowledge for the benefit of the patient and the advancement of healthcare.” I am deeply grateful to each one of them for choosing Mizzou as the launchpad for this journey.

The University of Missouri’s commitment to the health and well-being of our state and the world continues to shine through the medical professionals who devote their lives to our citizens and communities. Last year alone, MU Health Care saw more than 230,000 in-state patients. In addition, MU Health Care’s Missouri Telehealth Network saw nearly 36,000 patients.

Let us all thank our medical professionals for their tireless work, and celebrate the next generation of medical doctors who will serve Missouri and beyond.
