Indiana University School of Medicine Graduates 303 Physicians Saturday

INDIANAPOLIS -- Four years of graduate study will be recognized with doctor of medicine degrees for 303 new physicians who will graduate Saturday from the Indiana University School of Medicine.
Saturday’s commencement will begin at 10 a.m. in the Sagamore Ballroom at the Indiana Convention Center.

With more than 1,300 students enrolled in the four-year program, the IU School of Medicine is the nation’s second largest public medical school exceeded by the University of Illinois School of Medicine with a total enrollment of 1,426.

Indiana University Executive Vice President and IUPUI Chancellor Charles R. Bantz, Ph.D., and D. Craig Brater, M.D., dean and Walter J. Daly Professor at the IU School of Medicine and IU vice president of university clinical affairs, will speak to the new graduates and present diplomas.

Following the formal hooding ceremony, Indiana’s newest physicians will repeat in unison the time-honored Physician’s Oath, promising, among other things, to practice their profession “with conscience and dignity” and always considering the health of their patients first and foremost.

The four years of medical school begins a physician’s educational journey into a medical career. Saturday’s graduates will begin residency training in their chosen specialties this summer. The length of that training varies depending on the specialty from two to seven years.

Just reading about Medical Doctorates being given to 303 IUSM students last Saturday makes my heart smile...One day it will be my turn!

Congrats to ALL the 2011 Grads!
