Special Newsletter on Commencement

On Saturday, June 14th, the School of Medicine held its celebration and diploma awarding event on the Dean's Lawn. The University Commencement Ceremony, was held on Sunday morning, June 15th. This year, the School presented 29 Master of Science degrees, 91 Doctor of Philosophy degrees and 74 Doctor of Medicine degrees. Among these, students received combined degrees, including eleven MD/PhD degrees, two MD/Master degrees, one PhD/Masters, and one BA/MS.

Please join me in extending our personal congratulations to each and every graduate and to their parents, families and friends. What a wonderful accomplishment by all.

I would also like to take this opportunity to especially thank Char Hamada, Zera Murphy and Suzanne Bethard and others in Student Affairs for all of their painstaking efforts that made this year's commencement a tremendous success. Also thanks to Sharon Olsen, Lorena Najarro, Velessa Peairs, Cassandra Sooter, Ann Davis, Kathryn Fitzgerald, Eon Rios, and Justin Odegaard for helping to set up Saturday's great event. (Eon and Justin are current medical students who volunteered their time on Saturday to carry the flags). Working behind the scenes on Friday to help make the day a success was Eva Vasquez, Robin Casey, Juhn Verano, and Patricia Perez.

Address to the Graduates

One of the traditions of the School of Medicine Commencement is a presentation by an elected member of the Graduate and Medical Student graduating class. This year, Eleanor Suchada Click or the 2003 Graduation class in Genetics (Ellie is also receiving her M.D. today), and Feyza Essam Marouf of the 2003 graduating class in Medicine, spoke to the graduates and guests. They each gave compelling and inspiring remarks.

2003 Commencement Speaker

Julie Louise Gerberding, M.D., M.P.H. Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

We were also privileged this year to have Dr. Julie Gerberding as our 2003 Commencement Speaker. Dr. Gerberding addressed the importance of a national health system that embraces a health care system and the biomedical research enterprise that underlies it for the diagnosis and treatment of disease among individuals and a public health system for promoting health and preventing disease and injury in communities.

She noted that while both of these systems have made extraordinary achievements in the past decades, there are still walls between them in far too many locales. For example, schools of Public Health on one side of the street that do not interface with schools of medicine on the other; clinicians in practice who have no clue about the local health department's role in disease prevention; scientists at the bench with new knowledge to apply but no conduit for delivery; local health officials who collect data but provide no information or knowledge of use to doctors in practice.

Accordingly, the dichotomy between the public health and the health care systems is artificial, ineffective, and absolutely obsolete. Therefore, it is time to integrate these two systems -- to create a new state-of-the-art network -- a health system - that takes full advantage of the extraordinary opportunities 21st Century science and technology afford us.

Dr. Gerberding envisions this new health system as a highly connected network in the truest sense of the word. A network of people, scientists, clinicians, facilities, organizations, institutions, and communities and nations with the shared primary goal of ensuring that each of us enjoys the best possible quality and quantity of life.

Specifically, she noted how the recent experience with SARS has taught us the value of a comprehensive global health network to address threats to our health - whether they are intentional terrorist threats, emerging infections such as SARS, WNV, monkeypox, or the epidemic threats of tobacco and obesity. We live in a global world but it is a small world.

Protecting the health and safety of people in this small world requires that our health system be highly cross-linked. But certain links that involve you as physicians and scientists must be especially strong if we are to be successful:

The first strong link: Physician or scientist to local health officials -- a conduit to the community. This might include, for example, the astute clinician who recognizes a new illness or syndrome and engages local health officials.

Second Strong link: Physician or scientist and real-time learning resources, for example, just in time information; handheld data; computer searches -- at the bedside just in time to make the right decision or "Just in Case" information that permits advanced appropriate preparation.

Notably, Dr. Gerberding indicated that one of the strongest links of all is the stethoscope, since it is one of our last remaining personal tools -- the link in the health system network that connects us to our patients. Indeed, using the stethoscope means that the physician and patient have to be present together, there is a laying on of hands, and most importantly, the physician has to listen, not just to the patient's heart sounds, but to the patient's heart.

As concluded by Dr. Gerberding: "Science and technology have evolved enormously -- we can do more to diagnose disease, save lives and mitigate suffering than we ever dreamed possible, but what the patient actually wants and needs have changed far less. The truth is, most patients are far more concerned about caring than they are about curing.

In too many corners of our health system, there is no care. The ability to care, not just for, but about patients is a quality that characterizes the best physicians. Sadly, empathy is so hard to maintain in this white coat world of science and technology.

For those of you who will be new interns and residents, your empathy for patients will be increasingly challenged. Your stethoscope is the umbilical cord that tethers you to your patients, the extension of your ears and your conduit to the patient's heart.

You are the leaders of the 21st Century health system. As you occupy your place in the network of health, as physician, scientist, or both, you link your knowledge, your skill, your empathy and your responsibility with those of countless other dedicated professionals around the global. I urge you to make strong links and engage your colleagues in public health, research, and the clinical frontlines. As the newest credentialed members of our nation's health system, I thank you - for I know our future is in excellent hands".
