Incoming students launched their medical journeys at the Gateway Orientation in early September. A week of activities introduced students to each other, their new school, and their community in St. Louis.

In addition to getting to know the campus and curriculum, incoming students visited the St. Louis Aquarium and the Missouri Botanical Garden.
