I am delighted to welcome our Class of 2022, which started medical school last week. Here are some quick facts about our newest class:
228 Texas residents, 12 out-of-state students
128 women (53%), 112 men (47%)
Age range, 20-43
Avg. GPA: 3.83
Avg. MCAT: 511
The Class of 2022 started off with an information-rich orientation last week. I had the opportunity to meet our new students during their first day of orientation where they heard from Dr. Sheela Lahoti, Dr. Eugene Toy, Dr. Michael Bungo, and other faculty in addition to experts from Environmental Health and Safety, HR/Title IX, UT Police Department, and Counseling and Work Life Services, and learned about joint programs in public health and business.
Surrounded by family and friends at the Hobby Center, our newest class was formally welcomed into the McGovern family with our White Coat Ceremony. Below is a glimpse of the occasion.
Please join me in welcoming these amazing students, and let’s help them become the doctors they aspire to be.
