School of Medicine honors its 2021 graduates!
A new generation of health care professionals, educators and researchers graduated from Oregon Health & Science University in June. A total of 523 degrees and certificates were awarded by the OHSU School of Medicine. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the ceremony was held virtually.
“The practice of medicine is steeped in protocol and principles, but there is a critical aspect of medicine that relates to flexibility and adaptability,” said Sharon Anderson, M.D., dean of the OHSU School of Medicine. “Nothing could have prepared our students better for what it means to be flexible and adaptable than the challenges of the past year. And nothing could make us prouder than to have witnessed how our students showed not only what it means to be flexible, but also what it means to lead and to greatly expand upon the service aspect of our professions at this extraordinary time.”
