Freshman orientation

Freshman Orientation is designed to help you make a smooth transition into medical school. During this first week, prior to start of classes, you will learn about our medical school curriculum, policies and procedures, get to know your fellow classmates, and become familiar with campus resources and services. It is our goal that by the time you leave orientation, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a successful HWCOM medical student. 

Freshman orientation for the Class of 2025 will begin on Monday, July 26. The White Coat Ceremony will take place on Friday, July 30.
