After receiving their books and some basic medical equipment last week, the F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine Class of 2021 begins classes today. For the next two years, they will be learning in classrooms and labs, followed by a year of clerkships, and then a year of clinical rotations. Throughout the four years they’ll participate in various field exercises that challenge their medical knowledge, leadership skills, and their ability to perform under pressure.

Welcome Class of 2021! We can’t wait to see what you accomplish!
