Class of 2020 Transitions to Major Clinical Year

The 174 members of the Class of 2020 marked the start of their major clinical year with the Steven Z. Miller Student Clinician’s Ceremony on Jan. 5. The ceremony, which marks the transition of second-year students from the classroom to patient-centered training in hospital and ambulatory settings, has been a VP&S tradition since 1998. Three members of the class designed a pin to attach to the white coats they received when they enrolled. The ceremony is named for the late Steven Z. Miller’84, the Arnold P. Gold Associate Professor of Pediatrics at VP&S, who founded the first transition ceremony.
