The Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) is proud to graduate the Class of 2020 as Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine. The ceremony was to be held on Saturday, May 9, 2020, at Auburn Arena at Auburn University. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and to follow the guidelines set upon by the Center for Disease Control's social distancing policy, VCOM made the difficult decision to cancel graduation. VCOM recognizes the hard work and resiliency of our students and commends them. We hope you can join us as we have our first online commencement and gather to recognize a special group of students who have worked hard and earned this moment to be honored and celebrated.
The ceremony will be divided by the agenda below and hosted on Vimeo. Videos can be played via any browser with an internet connection.
