The largest class of new doctors ever to graduate from the University of Manitoba will officially receive the title MD on Thursday, May 18 at Convocation for the Max Rady College of Medicine, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences.
The Class of 2017 is made up of 113 graduates. As they move on to residency training, 73 (65 per cent) of them are staying in Manitoba. Of the 34 doing residencies in family medicine in the province, six will be in northern and remote locations and 12 in rural locations.
The class includes nine students of self-declared Indigenous ancestry and seven French-speaking bilingual students. About one-third of the graduates have connections with rural communities.
