MED class of 2020 to make history with early graduation

On Friday, April 17, the Boston University School of Medicine Class of 2020 will make a bit of history when they graduate. Not only will the fourth-year students graduate a month earlier than scheduled so they can jump immediately into the front lines of medicine during the global coronavirus pandemic, but they will also do so without all the glory of an in-person convocation, and instead will graduate remotely, with a virtual—and memorable—ceremony conducted via Facebook Live.
