Wright Medical Careers
After four or more years of intense study and specialized training, 105 medical students of the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine class of 2014 received their M.D. degrees during the school’s commencement ceremony at the Benjamin and Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center on Friday, May 23.
In addition to the conferring of degrees, the event included a “hooding ceremony” in which graduates received traditional regalia denoting their status and profession. They also took a professional oath to mark the start of their medical careers and signed a registry to commemorate their first use of the initials M.D. following their names.
In July, the graduates will begin prestigious residencies and receive advanced training in the medical specialty of their choice. The new physicians will enter outstanding residency training programs in Dayton, throughout Ohio, and nationwide, including at the Cleveland Clinic, University of California at San Francisco, Duke University, the Mayo Clinic, University of Pennsylvania and New York Presbyterian-Columbia.
Almost half (45 percent) of the Wright State graduates will remain in Ohio during residency, and 20.3 percent will remain in the Dayton area. Close to half (48 percent) will enter a primary care field, including family medicine, internal medicine, internal medicine/pediatrics, internal medicine/psychiatry and pediatrics.
Gregory Toussaint, M.D., associate professor of pediatrics and medical director, inpatient general pediatrics, delivered the commencement address.
Each year the graduating class presents an Appreciation Award to recognize an individual or organization for significant contributions to the medical school. The class of 2014 honored Howard M. Part, M.D., the fifth dean of the Boonshoft School of Medicine, for his exceptional leadership in support of students and medical education. Part joined the fully affiliated faculty as an assistant professor in the Department of Internal Medicine in 1988 and was named dean in 1999.
Marjorie A. Bowman, M.D., dean of the medical school, presented the Dean’s Award to graduating student Paul A. Krebs, who demonstrated a commitment to academic excellence, embodied empathy and compassion toward others, exemplified personal integrity and professionalism and earned the respect and trust of classmates and faculty.
The medical school presented several other awards:
The Teaching Excellence Award was presented to Gregory Toussaint, M.D., associate professor, pediatrics, who was selected by the class of 2014 as the faculty member displaying outstanding professional skill and pride in discharging his instructional duties.
The Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award was presented by The Arnold P. Gold Foundation to graduate Elizabeth A. Markus and to faculty member Brenda Roman, M.D., professor, psychiatry and assistant dean for curriculum development, for consistently demonstrating compassion and empathy in the delivery of care to patients.
The American Medical Women’s Association Glasgow-Rubin Citation for Academic Achievement was given to Lisa M. Anacker, Meredith R. Pesce, Koriann K. Reed and Catherine A. Ulman, who are graduating in the top 10 percent of the class.
