Every May, Feinberg recognizes and celebrates fourth-year medical students as they reach the end of their medical school journey and earn their degrees. Graduation week celebrations include an Honors Day reception and graduate luncheon, and culminate in the commencement ceremony at Navy Pier. Dean Eric Neilson emcees the event, which features the convocation address from a visiting speaker, the conferring of degrees, and the awarding of diplomas. A reception with family and friends follows the ceremony.
