On Saturday, Stanford Medicine’s graduating class will walk away from campus with a new title: Doctor.
The day of celebration begins with a commencement brunch for graduates and guests, with the diploma ceremony following at 1 p.m. Augustus White III, MD, PhD, the first African-American to graduate from Stanford’s medical school, will be this year’s speaker. A professor at Harvard Medical School who served as its orthopedic surgeon-in-chief for 13 years, White now focuses on how prejudice can get in the way of good medicine.
Congratulations in advance to all the new doctors!
