NEOMED’s orientation program enables a smooth transition for students, whether they are entering as first-year students or progressing into their subsequent years of study as returning students.

Orientation is coordinated by the Office of Student Services and includes both an online orientation course in Canvas titled “NavigateNEOMED” and an in-person orientation on campus.

For new students, the celebration of beginning in the M.D., Pharm.D., D.D.S., Ph.D. and master’s programs begins the week before the first term of classes.

For returning students, progressing to the next year of study, orientation starts on the first day of their courses.
