A Long and Happy Career

Starting on June 1 and in the following days and weeks, graduates from across our Faculty, including the MD Class of 2023, will celebrate the successful conclusion of their programs and mark this important milestone in their ongoing career development in a lifetime filled with learning.   It’s an exciting time for all of us, but also an occasion to pause and reflect on what it takes to reach this point and what may lay ahead. That is as true for educators as it is for students. Have we done enough to support our learners? Are they as prepared as may be necessary, not only for the difficulties of their chosen profession today, but the challenges that may exist in the future? We ask ourselves these questions regularly, not just once or twice a year when we mark convocation. We’re in a constant dialogue around such questions as we innovate curricula and improve the quality of our programs. But when you see graduates walk across the stage of Convocation Hall, the questions become more stark, visceral, and urgent.

Giving Back

The impact of donor support begins by enhancing the work of our clinicians, researchers and trainees but then resonates throughout the health-care system and ultimately serves to improve human health.
