journey I’m just glad to make it to this point. You’ve earned it. You’ve worked for it. You studied for it. You sweat for it from kindergarten through high school, college. And through many medical school applications, interviews and finally you got accepted to
Ross universities School of medicine. I have but one question for the class of 2017. Are you
guys ready to graduate or what? We didn’t come this far and work this
hard to forget who we are or where we come from. Remember who you are and where
you come from. You’re Ross University School of Medicine graduates.
Congratulations and thank you. Good luck to you. You’re gonna be great doctors. You’re
gonna help a lot of people. I might even be one of those people. Someday I may walk
into an examination room, or you may walk in, I’ll be waiting
reading the lymph nodes. You may walk in and I’ll be there and I hope that you
remember what I said to you today and I hope you don’t give me a tetanus shot.
thanks a lot and congratulations. The biggest privilege that the diploma gives
you it’s the privilege to take a responsibility for another human life. If
that doesn’t amaze you, then you you’re in the wrong field. Obviously lots of stress throughout the
year waiting for you know to find out where we’re going. All that’s behind us.
Now graduation’s behind us. We got our diplomas. We’re moving on and it’s just a
great feeling. Please join me in congratulating, one last time, all of our
graduates. Thank you Ross!
