A Look Back: Einstein Graduation

A Look Back: Einstein Graduation

Sixty years ago, on June 10, 1959, the 50 medical students in Einstein’s first graduating class received their diplomas under a tent in a parking lot of what is now the Harold and Muriel Block Building (formerly the Abraham Mazer Building).

This year’s considerably larger graduation ceremony, pictured above, was held on May 23 at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall in New York City. Einstein conferred 156 M.D. and 31 Ph.D. degrees; 16 graduates of the Medical Scientist Training Program received both degrees.
