Nearly eleven months after beginning orientation at Baylor Med, I’m proud to say that I’ve lived to see my last day of classes as a first year medical student (MS-1). This afternoon, we had a “professor/TA appreciation ceremony” where we honored our beloved teachers for inundating us with knowledge regarding all aspects of the human body. It was a great opportunity to reflect on an amazing year.
Yesterday, the board of trustees unanimously voted on Dr. Paul Klotman to serve as the next president and CEO of Baylor College of Medicine after months of searching and selecting from over fifty incredibly qualified candidates. Based on Dr. Klotman’s press conference, it seems that he wants to place more emphasis on research (always a good thing for those ranks ;-)), so I’m looking forward to his agenda over the next few years.
Only three exams stand between me and claiming the title of “MS2.” Heh, better not fail. 😯
