DMS Hooding Ceremony

On February 26, President Larry Bacow announced that Harvard's 370th Commencement would be postponed until a later date and a virtual ceremony would be held on May 27, 2021. Following this announcement, the 2021 DMS Hooding Ceremony hosted by the Division of Medical Sciences has been cancelled.

We look forward to watching the livestream of the GSAS Graduation Recognition Ceremony and celebrating the Division of Medical Science graduates.
