Congratulations! Today is your day!

It has been a true honor to join you in the final stretch of your medical education. I have really enjoyed getting to know all of you, learning about your career aspirations, and supporting you through the residency application process. You are a great group of students who have accomplished so much and who will continue to go on to do great things.

You’re off to great places!

Soon, you will represent the UVM College of Medicine in 16 specialties, at 60 medical programs, in 29 different states. You will provide excellent care to patients around the world, and the world will be a better place because of you. As you begin to practice medicine, remember your medical roots here at the College of Medicine - we will always be your ‘medical home.’ Be proud of your UVM medical education and pass along the knowledge, clinical skills, and compassionate patient care you have acquired here. Be great doctors, great educators, great administrators and, most importantly, love what you do and inspire future generations of physicians.

Your mountain is waiting. So…get on your way!
