We encourage our graduates to participate in the different speaking engagements held on and off campus.

Orientation and White Coat Ceremony

Orientation is held twice a year, usually in January and August. Graduates arrive on Saturday to take in the sites in Guadalajara.

On Monday, Orientation Day, graduates help welcome the new students of the UAG International Medical Program and share their experiences and give helpful advice on attending Medical School and life after UAG. Graduates are also asked to assist in the White Coat Ceremony which is on wherein students vow to tend to their patients with honor, humanism, and quality always having the patient’s best interests at heart.

Graduation Ceremony

Graduation activities begin on Thursday evening with the NASA cocktail with students, family and faculty. The actual graduation ceremony is on Friday morning. During the graduation ceremony our graduate speaker will join the entrance procession and then address the graduating class with words of encouragement and advice. Our Graduates also participate in handing out the diplomas.
