we extend graduates the privilege of having a close family member (spouse, father,
mother, sister, brother) assist in the hooding ceremony. The family member must be
either an osteopathic or allopathic physician to participate.
The Hooding Information Form must be completed if you have a family member who meets
the PCOM criteria as stated in the policy. Please refer to the Commencement Hooding
Policy. Both can be found on the Commencement section of Nucleus. This form must
be completed by February 25th.
The formal commissioning of graduates in the military will take place on stage as
part of the Commencement ceremony. Please refer to the Commissioning Policy on Nucleus.
A separate communication with specific details will be sent by e-mail to each Army,
