“When we broke ground on the Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine five years ago, this virtual ceremony is not what any of us had in mind for our first graduating class of medical students,” Hummer said. “Despite all of the challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are proud of our inaugural class and their accomplishments. I hope everyone tunes in on May 8 and enjoys the ceremony.”
