Dear Class of 2021,
Congratulations on the start of your medical education! Each of you had a very unique path that led to the start of your journey to become a physician. These next two weeks will be two of the best in your four years here at VCU, and we are incredibly excited to have you join our family. Continue to be inspired, curious, and most of all, kind to one another as you learn and grow over these next four years.
