12 College Graduation Gifts for Future Med Students

This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% from Her Campus.

If you’re about to trade in your cap and gown for a white coat, these grad gifts are for you. Grey’s Anatomy taught you everything you know about medicine (until you studied for the MCAT) and you can’t wait to start med school in style. Whether you’re a total Grey’s fanatic or aspiring doctor (or both), you’re going to love our picks for cutest gifts.


Chemistry Mug, $14, available at Urban Outfitters

Let’s be honest, med-students thrive off of caffeine, so why not combine it with their love of chemistry?!

Grey Yang Karev Stevens O’Malley Sweatshirt, $17.75, available at Etsy

Talk about #squadgoals.

The Complete Atlas Of Human Anatomy And Surgery, $19.99, available at Urban Outfitters

Any aspiring doctor or surgeon would not be able to put this down.

Plush Organs, $18, available at Uncommon Goods

Because these adorable organs are better than any stuffed animal out there.

Grey’s Anatomy Inspired Pencil Set, $17.95, available at Etsy

It’s a beautiful day to save lives…and start studying for that MCAT with these Grey’s-inspired pencils.

When Breath Becomes Air, $15, available at Amazon

These brain coasters are awesome on their own, but when you stack them, you see a full brain. What’s cooler than that?!
