The Hooding Ceremony

The Hooding was held at Bailey Hall on Saturday, May 24 at 2 pm. Candidates for the degree, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, and CUHA interns and residents completing programs assemble with parents, friends, spouses, partners, colleagues, faculty and guests. Dean Kotlikoff addressed the assembly and placed the hood representing the DVM degree on each candidate. Here is his address to the assembly. The Veterinary Oath was administered by Dr. David Hancock, President of the New York State Veterinary Medical Society. Dr. Dan Fletcher (Norden Distinguished Teacher Award - 2008) delivered the traditional "charge to the class". Professors Fubini and Gilbert recognized the interns and residents who have completed programs in the Hospital. Here are some of those pictures.
