Addressing the Year 1 students, Dr. Yoo emphasized their role as future health care leaders.

“Entering medicine now is an opportunity like never before. You have the chance to make an impact and the ability and responsibility to shape health care for the better and to shape people’s thinking about medicine and our profession for all the generations to come,” he said, adding that he, along with all Schulich Medicine & Dentistry faculty, are eager to support them on their journey to becoming physicians.

Dr. Shannon Venance, the newly appointed Vice-Dean, Undergraduate Medical Education, was also in attendance, marking her first visit to the Windsor Campus.

“I can say that I am impressed with the learners, faculty and staff I have already met,” she shared. “Many of our alumni have remained in the Windsor-Essex area to provide health care to the community. I am excited to continue to develop the excellent program that already exists here in Windsor.”
