Summer Reading Assignment

Each year, the incoming class at WVSOM reads a book together over the summer. The book always covers a medically-related topic but written for a popular audience. In previous years, we’ve read Being Mortal (Class of 2022), When Breath Becomes Air (Class of 2023) and My Own Country (Class of 2024).

This year’s book will be revealed by Monday, May 3, 2021, and you will have until June 21 to read and respond to questions raised by the book – questions that were developed by WVSOM faculty members. Those same faculty members will be reading the essays for your class and giving you feedback.

During Orientation, you will have a chance to further discuss the book with your new classmates and second year students.
