The Gateway Orientation gives incoming students a chance to launch their medical education journey, getting to know each other, their new school, and their community in St. Louis, culminating with the White Coat Reflection. Orientation is organized by the Office of Medical Student Affairs.
The circumstances around COVID19 continue to evolve. Our priority is the health and safety of our students and community. Gateway Orientation and the programming within will look very different, particularly in its delivery, than traditionally planned. Our hope is to still provide meaningful orientation programming while adhering to the guidelines laid forth by our community experts.

Incoming medical students should refer to their Pre-Matriculation Checklist as primary means to ensure they’ve viewed and completed all necessary forms and tasks prior to matriculating. The Office of Medical Student Affairs has put together a supplementary list of items that are important for you to review prior to your arrival at WUSM on September 8th.
