UC San Diego Graduates Next Generation of Physicians

Hundreds of proud family members and friends flocked to the UC San Diego campus over the weekend to congratulate the School of Medicine’s newest graduates – now doctors.  The school’s commencement weekend began with a Senior Banquet last Thursday and then a Senior Awards ceremony on Saturday, which recognized the graduates’ range of talent and accomplishments – from clinical and research excellence to admirable characteristics like compassion and humanism.  The commencement ceremony for the 130 men and women took place on Sunday.  Chancellor Khosla conferred the degrees and expressed his admiration for their passion, determination and hard work.
