Convocation marks the beginning of the academic year for the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. At this ceremony, we renew the School’s commitment to excellence in research, education, and clinical care, and recognize individual faculty for their outstanding contributions to serving science and society. We also honor the generous donors who provide the support our faculty need to succeed. The endowed professorships and awards conferred at this ceremony honor both the accomplishments of our faculty and the vision of our donors.

  • Opening remarks by Peter W. May, Chairman, Boards of Trustees, Mount Sinai Health System


  • State of the School Address by Dennis S. Charney, MD, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean, IcahnSchool of Medicine at Mount Sinai, President for Academic Affairs, Mount Sinai Health System. Dean Charney presented an overview of the School’s accomplishments during the past year and described plans for the coming year. You can watch his presentation here.
