Physicians in Training Embark on Medical School
The group pursued undergraduate degrees at 30 different colleges. There are 69 M.D. students and two enrolled in the M.D.-Ph.D. program. Fifty-seven of the 71 are from South Dakota. The remainder come from Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Montana, Florida and New York.
The USD Sanford School of Medicine is recognized as the nation’s leading medical school for producing doctors serving rural locations, and that’s reflected in the fact that almost half of the new students have roots in a community with fewer than 10,000 people.
Medical school leaders welcomed the class last week and presented each with a physician’s white coat to formally mark their start to medical school training.
