Words of Wisdom

Words of Wisdom note

Help the Faculty of Medicine and the Medical Alumni Association welcome the incoming class of MD students by sharing your experiences through the Words of Wisdom Project.

"Thank you so much for the kind “Words of Wisdom” that greeted us during our first week as medical students. I taped my note to the top of my desk, so I see it every day. It still serves as an important inspiration to me. It reminds me of the remarkable honour and privilege that we have to be members of the U of T medical school.” – Paige Zhang, MD Class 1T7

Words of Wisdom asks MD alumni to write notes of congratulations and encouragement to first-year medical students.  Notes can include advice, things you wish you had known while in medical school or simply a warm welcome to the Medicine/U of T alumni community. Students will receive these notes at the annual Dean’s Breakfast this September.
