Student Events for Families

Each year, the medical school celebrates several distinguishing events that mark the milestones of a medical student’s journey to becoming an MD. These events include the White Coat Ceremony in the first year, and Match Day and Graduation in the fourth year. Families and loved ones are encouraged to celebrate these momentous occasions with their students. Whether you’re in Kalamazoo for a WMed event, or to visit your student, please find information below on Kalamazoo, including how to get around, hotel accommodations, and things to do.
