Congratulations to the Class of 2013!

On Saturday, nearly 200 students walked away from the Stanford campus with a new title: Doctor! My colleague was on the scene at the medical school's commencement, during which 95 members of the graduating class earned MDs, 91 earned PhDs or MD/PhDs, and 39 earned master's degrees. More images from the day, which featured a keynote address from Nobel Prize winner Brian Kobilka, MD, can also be found on the medical school's Flickr page.
