Virtual Celebration Honors the 13th Graduating Class: The Class of 2021
The 31 students of this year’s Lerner College of Medicine graduating class gathered in small groups with their respective family, friends and loved ones on Saturday, May 15, to acknowledge and celebrate their hard work and remarkable accomplishments over the last five years.
Bud Isaacson, MD, Professor of Medicine and Executive Dean of the Lerner College of Medicine, welcomed the group via video, remarking that 2021 represents not only the 13th graduating class of CCLCM but also the 100th anniversary of Cleveland Clinic.
“This has been a year unlike any other,” said Dr. Isaacson. “COVID has had profound impacts on all aspects of society including disruption of traditional models of education. Your class found opportunities in these challenges, and contributed to our response to the COVID pandemic in patient care, research and education.”
