New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine’s 284 graduates received doctoral hoods and accolades this morning as they were honored for their hard work, compassion, and dedication to health care. On July 1, the graduates will begin their residencies at hospitals and institutions across the country.
“Whether you go on to become pediatricians or physicians who provide the set of services known as primary care, or whether you venture into public policy or another specialty, know that you can make an incredible impact on the health of others,” said NYIT President Edward Guiliano, Ph.D. in his address to the students. Guiliano noted that many students had already done that through their clerkships, service abroad, and numerous fundraisers and activities that “have demonstrated the human connection that is so vital to your field.”
Dean Wolfgang Gilliar, D.O., urged the graduates to “think health, think health prevention” and to connect and engage with their patients as they practice “high-touch” medicine that stimulates the power of self-healing.
