Author and surgeon Atul Gawande, MD, has been named the commencement speaker for Stanford medical school's Class of 2010. Dean Philip Pizzo, MD, recently commented:

"A number of his writings have played a major role in the health-care debate... Given that 2010 is the year of health-care reform, the fact that Dr. Gawande will be our commencement speaker is particularly relevant and meaningful."

Gawande was an undergraduate student at Stanford and is an associate professor at Harvard's medical school. He is the author of many best-selling books (most recently, The Checklist Manifesto) and public-interest articles appearing in the New Yorker and New York Times.
