We are graduating from medical school after four difficult but rewarding years, and we now look towards residency, perhaps moving far across the country, starting marriages, beginning families, and embarking on our careers. This transition has been an important step in our becoming doctors. If we could take only one ideal, one principle, from medical school and keep it with us for the rest of our careers, I would hope that it would be that of the doctor as a teacher. The word "doctor" originates from the Latin verb docere, meaning "to teach," suggesting it is not sufficient to simply be a physician and a healer. In fact, this should compel us to realize our moral and ethical responsibility to teach our patients, our colleagues, and ourselves. For this reason, it seems so very appropriate that we, the class of 2008, dedicate our yearbook to a man who taught us. Though not a clinician himself, he is a scientist, a researcher, our mentor and dean, and our pharmacology teacher, it is with great respect that we dedicate this yearbook to Dr. Gerald Sterling. Dr. Gerald Sterling, a Philadelphia na- Gerty and Helene's Wedding (1978) tive, was born in 1951. He grew up in the Northeast section of Philadelphia, attended Northeast High School, and played the clarinet in the marching band. It was in high school that Dr. Sterling first met his future wife, Helene Blum. Even though they went to The Pennsylvania State University to- C TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE Gerry with his family (1988) gether, they never dated during college. Only after their college years, through a mutual friend would they meet again. It was love at first (or second) sight, and now they are about to celebrate thirty wonderful years of marriage together. Aside from their love for each other, they share a passion for Penn State. In fact, all of their children, lan and Michelle, Rachel, and Matthew are Penn State grads (or soon-to-be-grads). The whole family shares in the intensity of Penn State Football and it is even rumored that an ill-informed first-year (student?) once offered Dr. Sterling two hundred dollars for his pair of PSU-Notre Dame tickets. Always interested in science and math. Dr. Sterling graduated from Penn State in 1972 with a Biophysics degree, and then continued on to The Ohio State University to study Pharmacology. At Ohio State, the young and fully bearded. Sterling first started to develop his Temple ties. His PhD advisor left Ohio State to chair the Pharmacology Department at Temple, and Dr. Ster- ling followed, finishing his last two years of PhD work here at Temple (although his degree is from Ohio State, 1977). He was immediately drawn to Temple, not only because it was a great institute of higher learning, but also because Dr. Schneck had his name memorized from the first day (and Ted's Truck had the best coffee he had ever tasted). After completing his PhD, Dr. Sterling traveled out west for a few years for a postdoc fellowship at the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California. His research at NASA involved studying the dehydration that astronauts experience from fluid shifts in zero-gravity environments. Eventually, Dr. Sterling returned to Philadelphia in 1979, where he joined the faculty at Hahnemann and worked on the cholinergic nervous system in a collaborative effort with Temple pharmacologists. It was in 1990 that Dr. Sterling finally came to Temple University School of Medicine. He joined the Pharmacology Department as faculty and became engaged in teaching future doctors, dentists, and podiatrists. His interests lay in pharmacology education for professional students, as well Matthew, Rachel, Michelle and Ian (2005) 2008 SKULL 7as in research for trends in medical education. In 1997, Dr. Sterling became the Associate Dean for Medical Education where he has worked to create a close and supportive environment for the entire student body. He has a unique and close relationship with Dr. Reeves as well as everyone in the Office of Student Affairs. Dr. Reeves says, "In all my years of medical education, I never met anyone as compassionate, understanding, intelligent, and hard work- found him receptive and responsive to our concerns. From unhappy lectures to test questions to missing lecture notes he makes it a priority to give us feedback and keep us informed. When we hear pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics, it is hard not to think of Dr. Sterling. He was an outstanding lecturer, covering a range of topics from autonomic pharmacology to endocrine pharmacology. Dr. Sterling has engaged all of us “You have all been like my children over the last four years.” Left: Gerry and his mother at commencement (PhD, Ohio State, 1977) Center. The young and handsome Dr. Gerald Sterling Right: Gerry and his brother(1957) ing. I aspire to be like him." Dr. Sterling is not the type to sit behind closed doors and dictate educational policy. He works hard to actively involve students in directing their medical education, he has been instrumental in the implementation of the new medical school curriculum, and he works closely with course and clerkship directors. His recent publications have included research regarding the integrated curriculum, ethics, professionalism, and student mental health. This research shows Dr. Sterling's interest and commitment to becoming a better teacher by continually learning. As students, we always have with his weekly workshops in clinical pharmacology, which stem from his belief that "we learn best in the context of a clinical problem." He also has led us through review sessions before each pharmacology test, and has always been willing to spend extra time helping students outside of the classroom. Dr. Sterling also consistently ensures that he maintains good relationships with his students through his work as Associate Dean of Medical Education. He is approachable, understanding, and truly cares about each student who walks into his office. It is not hard to believe that Dr. Sterling t TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINEsaid, "You have all been like my children over the last four years" (aside from actually having a daughter in the class). Our class has been fortunate to see Dr. Sterling not only in the role of professor and dean, but also as a great father. Rachel Sterling even admits that some of her most treasured moments from Temple are the afternoons she spent chatting with her dad in his office. Aside from Temple, medical students, and pharmacology. Dr. Sterling is a man who loves his family and the community in which he lives. He and his wife are actively involved with their synagogue and community service in southern Jersey. When the weather is nice, he and his wife can be seen taking long walks in their neighborhood. He and Rachel like to do crossword puzzles in the evening, and he even enjoys household chores before sitting down in front of the T.V. Dr. Sterling may be an avid sports fan, but his favorite activity of all is going to his children's soccer games and cheering his heart out. This year is of course special for all of us as we earn our M.D.s and prepare for internship, residency, and our careers ahead. It also is a very special year for Dr. Sterling. His daughter Rachel is graduating with us, his son Matthew is graduating from college, and Dr. Sterling and his wife are celebrating thirty years of marriage. He is a devoted husband, father, and most importantly, he is a teacher at heart. Dr. Sterling is a role model for us to be lifelong students and teachers, and as great teachers, we can embrace the principle, the idea, docere. I hope that we never forget all the teachers that have helped us along this journey. Thank you. Dr. Sterling for all that you have done for us. -Jake Feldman and the Class of 2008 2008 SKULL 9HOOD ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR DEPARTMENT OF FAMILY AND COMMUNITY MEDICINE PROFESSOR VICE CHAIRPERSON, EDUCATION DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY Graduation is a cultural tradition considered a rite of passage from one platform in a student's life to another. It has its origins in antiquity where many tribes were found to be celebrating their passing from youth to adulthood through various customs and observances. Today's graduation ceremony is a manifestation of this ancient rite of passage in the modern context. An important part of the graduation ceremony is the giving of hoods. The origin of the hoods lies with the Celts and the Druids (the Celtic priests). Among the Celts, only the Druids wore mantles which had hoods attached to them as a mark of their rank in the society. In the schools of the middle ages, the hoods were worn as a head-covering to resist the frigid temperatures. But gradually, it was integrated into the academic system with much symbolic significance. Now, wearing of hoods symbolizes a kind of authority, a high standing, or to identify a new graduate's institution and the degree. A hood is always black in color, but the edges and and lining have individual significance. The hood is lined in silk with HONORABLE TRADITION 10 TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINEPROFESSOR PROFESSOR SECTION CHIEF, TRAUMA CRITICAL CARE DEPARTMENT OF ANATOMY AND CELL BIOLOGY DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY DEPARTMENT OF RADIOLOGY the official colors of the institution conferring the degree. The edging of the hood is velvet, with a particular color representative of the field of study to which the degree pertains. The official colors of Temple University are cherry and white while the velvet is dark green signifying medicine. A doctorate degree has a hood length of four feet. The tradition is that a candidate for a degree should not wear the hood of that degree until it is actually conferred. One of the great continuing traditions is the presence of hooders - individuals who symbolically bestow the medical degree upon each graduate. The senior class chose four individuals to assist with the placement of hoods. These distinguished members of the faculty were selected not only for their superior quality of teaching, but for their passion, hard work and dedication, the practice of medicine, and student education. Each hooder has committed themselves to challenging the minds of medical students and encouraging future doctors to maintain integrity to the profession. It was from these mentors that we were able to obtain the knowledge and learn the skills to become physicians - doctor, teacher and friend. Left top: Dr. Lyons with student and patient.

DALY, M.D. DEAN Dear Members of the Class of 2008: Warm congratulations on your graduation from medical school. During the course of four years, you have come a long way. All of us who participated in your education at Temple know that you worked very hard for your degree, and we are proud of each and every one of you. We did our best to challenge you and comfort you, to answer your questions and question your answers, and to prepare you for a profession that relies on lifelong learning. In many ways, your education has only just begun. A very accomplished alumnus from the late 1980s recently wrote to me and said, “My current professional opportunities and past accomplishments are a direct reflection of my medical education at Temple." As time goes by, you too may come to recognize the special imprint that Temple has made on you. Our influence might show up in how you organize your approach to problem-solving, or in how you glean clues that others could miss during a physical exam. In ways both subtle and obvious, we’ll be there. We look forward to watching your careers in medicine as you seek to help others in the betterment of mankind. We are proud of your accomplishments — and will remain proud to be part of your history, as you are part of ours. Please keep in touch. You will always be part of our Temple family. Yours, John M.

We also continue to enjoy having the main campus students join us for their required and elective rotations. The campus at West Penn Hospital continues to be one of Pittsburgh's leading teaching facilities and has attracted medical students from across the country. West Penn Hospital has earned an international reputation for excellence and innovation in the care of patients, education and research. In 2006. The Western Pennsylvania Hospital was awarded Magnet Recognition™ status from the American Nurses Crcdentialing Center (ANCC). the first hospital in Pittsburgh and western Pennsylvania to achieve this prestigious designation for excellence in nursing and patient care services. The ANCC is the nation's largest and foremost nursing crcdentialing organization and the 4-year Magnet designation is the highest level of recognition that the ANCC can extend to healthcare organizations. In 2007. The Western Pennsylvania Hospital was as named one of the country's 100 Top Hospitals for cardiovascular care, based on the results of the 2007 Cardiovascular Benchmark for Success Study. The study, commissioned by Thomson Healthcare (which last year acquired Solucient. LLC, and its longstanding Solucient 100 Top Hospitals program), examined the performance of nearly 1.000 U.S. hospitals in treating congestive heart failure and heart attacks. West Penn is one of 30 teaching hospitals with cardiovascular residency programs named to the Top 100 list. Elliot B. Goldberg, M.D. Associate Dean I look forward to our continued affiliation with the Temple University School of Medicine and am pleased that West Penn can provide valuable educational experience for medical students.

Temple University School of Medicine 22 TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINEWEST PENN AFFILIATE CAMPUS CROZER AFFILIATE CAMPUS Z008 SKULL 23To Be A Doctor... Ever since the day you first said those magic words, “I Want to be a doctor,” you have been wrapped in the colorful fabric of the history of medicine, a fabric woven from the ideals, wisdom, endeavors, and achievements of our glorious predecessors in medicine. The original meaning of the three words- physician, medic, doctor- that describe our profession is highly illuminating. The word "physician" derives from the Greek physis or nature, denoting that the physician has his roots in an understanding of the nature of the things; the word "medic" comes from mederi, to heal, and the root med means to meditate or think, so that medic is equivalent to thinker and healer; the word "doctor" originally meant master, instructor. Thus, semantically, our profession involves learning, knowledge, healing, and teaching. Five types of ethical duties must guide your life: duties to your teachers, to society, to your patients, to your colleagues, and to yourselves. You have duties to your teachers, because they, the parents of VOlir mind, are the most important people in your life next to your own parents. I do not mean only your university professors, but any physician from who you learn anything- his science, art, ethics, self-denial, or example- that may become a source of inspiration in your professional life. You must honor your masters with devotion and friendship, for friendship is mail’s noblest sentiment, greater even than love. Your duty to society is to be idealists, not hedonists: as physicians, to accept your profession as a service to mankind, not as a source of profit; as investigators, to seek the knowledge that will benefit your fellow beings; as clinicians, to alleviate pain and heal the sick; as teachers, to share and spread your knowledge and always because you are imbued with an ideal of service and not the ambition for gain. Thus will you maintain the dignity of our profession as a social science applied to the welfare of mankind. Your duty to your patients will be to act toward them as you would wish them to act toward you: With kindness, with courtesy, with honesty. You must learn when and howto withhold the truth from your patients if by not telling them all the facts of the case you can relieve or console them, for you can cure them sometimes, and you can give them relief often, but hope you can give them always. Remember that a laboratory report is not an irrevocable sentence. A hematological determination, a roentgenogram, an electroen-cephalophagram may supply vital information on the organic working of the body, but it is even more vital never to forget that, behind all such reports and data, there is a human being in pain and anguish, to whom you must offer something more than an antibiotic, an injection, or a surgical aid; you must, with your attitude, your words, and your actions, inspire confidence and faith and give understanding and consolation. To your colleagues, you have the obligations of civilized men sharing a great and noble task and fighting for a common cause in a great crusade. YOU belong to a team of gallant professionals of all races and eras, bound together across the ages and continents bv a glorious ideal. 24 TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINEA Finally, you will have obligations to yourselves. Every man in his youth forms an ideal profile of himself or of what he wants to be. He envisions, while young, an ideal program of things to do in life. The rest of his life is spent trying to fill in that profile with achievements. Some fail to reach fulfillment, and later it is tragic to see that ideal profile, of which they dreamed during their youth, in ruins, with the stumps of things begun but never completed. But in the majority of cases, that ideal silhouette created in youthful days really represents our true selves. You must live to be worthy of that silhouette. Your life, your work, and your personality as a physician must be such that your ideal profile of yourself will be filled in with brilliant achievements. Loam tO live perceptively, using that key to wisdom that comes from seeing everything with a total perspective and in view of eternity. Learn through science to correlate things in space, through history, to correlate events in time, and combine all this knowledge esthetically through the beauty of art. Remember that the important thing in life is to be great, HOt big, a great man, not a big man. Let your actions be great, but preserve your personal modesty and humility. What counts in a man and in a physician is his greatness. By greatness I mean grandeur in the things we do and Simplicity in the way we do them, doing things that influence the lives of many people, but preserving always the greatest personal simplicity. For greatness is simplicity. Try to find out as soon as you can what your ideal self is. You have chosen the best destiny of all, a life of dedicated service and dynamic activity. If you work with faith and without dismay, all your dreams will come true. In your future work you will be in good COinpOJiy, the great physicians of history, the glorious figures of the past, will always be near you. When you perform a dissection, a red-bearded young man with flashing eyes, Andreas Vesalius, will be peering over your shoulder; when you make a physiological experiment, the melancholy, pensive eyes of William Harvey will be watching you; when you teach medicine, the venerable figure of William Osier with his Apollonian head will come and sit like a medical Goethe beside you; and when you approach the sickbed, the shades of Hippocrates, Sydenham, and Fleming will gather round to counsel you. The Greeks created the legend that Delphi, site of the famous oracle, was the center of the world, because if two eagles were to fly from any two points of the globe, sooner or later they would meet in Delphi. We now know that the two eagles of science and medicine do not fly only in space but also in time, and their wings hover over the illustrious shadows of the investigators, clinicians, €(llIC£LtOrS, pioneers, rebels, £111(1 ITiart TS of the history of medicine. The meeting place of those two eagles lies not in space but in time, in the future, and in the mind and the heart of every one you w to greatness when you decide "to be a doctor."

Human Biology, Health, and Society Cornell University The thing that startles me is how fundamentally human an endeavor [medicine] it is. Usually, when we think about medicine and its remarkable abilities, what comes to mind is the science and all it has given us to fight sickness and misery: the tests, the machines, the drugs, the procedures. And without question, these are at the center of virtually everything medicine achieves. But we rarely see how it all actually works. You have a cough that won't go away - and then? It's not science you call upon but a doctor. A doctor with good days and bad days. A doctor with a weird laugh and a bad haircut. A doctor with three other patients to see and, inevitably, gaps in what he knows and skills he's still trying to learn. -excerpt from "Complications: A Surgeon's note on an Imperfect Science by Atul Gawande The three A's of a good doctor: Amiable, Available, and Able -Dr. Fabio Dorville (Internal Medicine Attending at St. Lukes Hospital in Bethlehem, PA) 2008 SKULL 135JACOB ANTHONY TRESKOViCH, M.D. Latrobe, Pennsylvania B.S.

The events of the past four years have made me to realize that our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate but rather our failure to accept that we are powerful beyond measures in Christ Jesus. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. Indeed, it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We should let the light in us shin to give other people permission to do the same. Also, as we are liberated from the shackles of our own fears our presence automatically liberates others. To Angela my wife and best friend, 1 am grateful for your understanding, love and support and to Chisom. Oluchi and Arinze for bearing with me. To my mom and dad thanks for your good upbringing and prayers that have brought me thus far. To all my friends and other family members thanks for your support and love over the years To faculty, residents and staff I remain indebted for your tutelage. To the patients I cared for, 1 am grateful for letting me learn first hand from your affliction. To the class of 2008, congratulations and good luck as another chapter has come to an end and a new chapter awaits. 2008 SKULL mTHOMAS LAWRENCE WALSH, M.D. Monaca, Pennsylvania B.S.

To every house you enter, you must offer Healing. From "What 1 Learned from My Mother" By Julia Kasdof SfM, 4 No greater opportunity or obligation can fall the lot of a human being than to be a physician. In the care of the suffering he needs technical skill, scientific knowledge, and human understanding. He who uses these with courage, humility and wistom will provide a unique sendee for his fellow man and will build an enduring edifice of character within himself The physician should ask of his distiny no more than this, and he should be content with no less.

They try imagining their future, asking their loved ones, and sometimes even try "no guarantee" questionnaires in a desperate attempt to pick the right field of medicine for their future career. The problem is simply not blowing the essence of each specialty. As most medical students are familiar with coffee, a technique has been develped that compares the essence of each field of medicine with the everyday task of drinking a cup of coffee. Each student simply needs to find the "cup of coffee" that most appeals to him or her, and a specialty match is made! Control: A cup of coffee Dermatology: Look at the coffee, then go home. Emergency Medicine: Coffee to go Family Practice: Savor the coffee with your family and friends, then prescribe a Z-Pack. General Surgery: Drink the $ % !!@ coffee NOW! Gynecology: Make the coffee uncomfortable by using a very cold spoon. Internal Medicine: R o tea, chocolate milk. Captain Morgan's, juice, water, etc.... Obstetrics: Deliver the coffee. Opthalmology: Which coffee looks better: Coffee one or coffee two? Orthopedics: Take the coffee cup, smash it and stomp on it. Get a prosthetic coffee cup, toss it on the ground and consult medicine to clean up the mess. Pediatrics: You are too young for coffee. How about some Kool-Aid? Psychiatry: Figure out which side of the house in the sky your patient is in then put some Zoloft in his coffee. Radiology: Liquid consistent with coffee but cannot rule out tea, chocolate milk. Captain Morgan's.. Urology: I would not drink that coffee if I were you... 220 TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINEAlpha Omega .Alpha Medical Honor Society Adviser: Epsilon Chapter of Pennsylvania Amy J.

Schneck makes body parts appear out of thin air holy crap Dr. Pearson has a lot of hair we'll never forget Dr. Marino's line: "isn't this fun" And don’t let that biochem Count out into the sun (one ha ha ha two ha ha ha) we learned some things this year forgot even more that our brains couldn't wrangle some things I never again want to hear like "ok, everybody, gather round and check out this anal triangle" some of our classes were great for our education they will help greatly in our medical maturation but some of the topics were definitely not a ball and some even made us want to bash our heads into the wall like Behavioral science, which was at times better known as BS WAIT OMCf! 24 SHOULD BE "C" THAT'S ANOTHER POINT ON MY TEST!!! most started out with perfect attendance every lecturer we would see then some of us lost our dependence 314 TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINEand wound up catching up on our sleep both in and out of Kresge some found it easy to maintain their attention taking notes and raising hands and being completely engaged others were not so studious using wireless internet or writing stories occasionally becoming enraged we were remarkably consistent as far as intramural sports go for our school we never brought home a trophy Hag football Cremasters even lost by the mercy rule but when powder puff came our suspicions were confirmed without the male deadweight our ladies thrashed the guys were more useful by just getting trashed and Coach Joe finally got that championship he deserved some will go travel others chill and unravel all just happy to have survived to the bridges we've built and even the ones we've lost there should be no guilt it was all worth the cost we're all more intelligent people now med student uber-nerds to be specific with a good deal of medical knowledge like, we're totally science-riffic most of us have no real world medical know-how despite all knowing so much stuff talking about nerve pathways can make people say wow but I'll be damned if I can fix a friggin papercut this year guys started balding and said "this is impossible!" while girls got even more psychotic who thought THAT was possible? of all our experiences this year. I've got a hunch that the best parts in most minds were always seeing those magical words... "Kresge A Noon. Free lunch!" remember those nights in manayunk where tanks would wave Hags and get drunk it sure is a pity we're too poor now for olde city but never underestimate our ability to get crunk through late nights and early mornings through lecture slides that were way too boring through vandalized cars and broken bones through fights in bars and secondary loans from SP’s to long ass shelf tests to parking fees and arguing which Pennsylvania pro football team is the best some other highlights include baseball and tailgating with the a capella singers and discovering the caf's buck 60 veggie pita with chicken fingers (thanks Julian) we keep being told that the honeymoon is over and that it's time to grow old but even worse, time to get sober but for now we enjoy a little bit of freedom to work or to play in our long awaited off-season we will go our separate ways for the last summer of our lives 2008 SKULL 305Sieve PorbvmdeTwala arvd Cmdy Kew Erv a ed )w 1 , 2007 W’edd'u £ uwe S, 200S Wedding June 6,2008 iy Stryker Chti anU«y, eddirift J0« TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MED'.C'.NEjeff Wat'S andGcU 0 O,'3 Pr 6 s ss 2003 SKUU. 307‘Weddings Michelle Chin 'MichaelChiu June 2, 2007 •Ben 'Erika Winders My 23, 2005 Hay Lauren 'June July 23,2005 Andy and Sarah 'Toner September 3,2005 Andy (finger Liu July 4, 2004 Andreu and 'KachelQeller July 4, 2004 Scott Viatic Short July 31, 2005 308 TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE‘Kfviti Linsday ‘K.rautand September JO, 2006 'Meg (jannn MarR?iecrc October 6, 2007 Ayn ’.Huntingdon “Witt‘Ktrbcr August 4, 2007 Jason VaCesRa 'J(fdon December 29, 2004 Sean Alexandra ’WiUiamson '.Rifan dr ‘Betsy (Jentzter July 17, 2004 Steve Lara ’?igRao June 25, 2005 2008 SKULL JOSJoe andShorn Turner December 16, 2006 Shown and Leslie July 30,2005 tMary 0(pny {Mafyryus July 23,2006 Jenny Chiang Trie Leslie July 2, 2005 Tranli Jen Qroshek .

Since then, so much has happened: we are now engaged, have a beautiful son and it's time for you to graduate. I don't know how you managed to stay so focused. From being pregnant during a crucial time in school, to taking the "boards" a week into a new birth - you were determined to get through it all, and you did. I have never been so impressed. When Maya Angelo wrote "Phenomenal Woman" it was because of women like you. I can't explain how proud of you I am. You are far beyond phenomenal. Someone should invent a new word for who you are because what you did seemed impossible, but you proved to me that anything is possible. I am so happy to have you in my life. You keep me going and striving for greatness and I thank you for being so influential in my life. Congrats Doc! You finally did it!!!

So here we are now 180 give or take we did lose a few mates after all med school's no cake We also took in Some stragglers from ahead Who are much smarter than us Yet decided to do 5-7 year programs instead With varying amounts of debt We look forward to actually getting a paycheck And that wonderful day we're all looking forward to "Would you like to supersize?" 'I can and 1 do!" Remember sitting attentively in class? Then slowly drifting off into dreamland? And waking with a jolt at last To groaning on a Friday afternoon when someone raises their hand? Our lecture attendance gradually dwindled Since classes were like Russian roulette You could never really know what you were going to get An excuse for a nap Another pathophys no-show Or hearing about the micro professor jumping out a window To Dr. Schneck and Derek the librarian The only people who know everyone by name in our biz One has no problem telling you everything about anatomy And the other has none telling you about his To the awful days and nights spent in coffee shops and libraries Studying for step 1 and 2CK in a crunch But what we'd all really like to get back Is that day in 2CS hell and paying $1000 for that crap lunch And now for a bit of thanks To all you wonderful tanks And if you think that's you but not quite sure There's plenty of quality pictures Like using duct tape and 40s when you drank To the thousands of cheesesteaks we've eaten At lunch trucks and diners and with Jim Chubby and Pat And for all you people who are ending up leavin' Wiz wit is the only way to order - don't forget that Ht TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINETo Temple University Hospital and it's surrounding population Hypertensive at 240 160 and doing coke through your trach? we leave here knowing it's not really a weird situation RIP 60 cent veggie pitas and 50 cent chicken fingers And getting gallons of soup on the dollar. Geez-The new caf looks pretty but it's not the same Screw the bistro pamni, where's the mac and cheese? To the state of Pennsylvania for showing us its wonders Prom Erie to Crozer Allentown to Geisenger And even that city ending in ittsburgh - one of God's great blunders During our stay our families have grown greater in size Through marriage And Babies Plus those lagers go straight to the thighs. While we were here Philly as city was demoted Most depressed and fattest and it was voted The whole vibe can be due to one of a variety of reasons I feel Like seeing Donovan throwing up all over the goddamn field To the departure of Temple childrens And a new building under construction, covered in drapes Time marches on - things keep on changing Like Ted having competition with a guy selling crepes We're the last of the old school curriculum Without nap time and Arts and crafts or animal balloons That's just for the classes below us Now now we're just jealous that you never had classes past noon 4 years have now passed Both a blur and a drag There's so much information we've amassed Like recognizing C-Diff and suppressing the gag Like how to look impossibly energetic In our first couple rotations Like how to look unapologetic Post match when you take a mini vacation We've been tested with exams and quizzes and labs and presentations Practical and OSCEs and even online heart sounds Our skills were tested on the floors with patients P.S. Administration, Never EVER tell us that a shelf grade won't count And speaking of the OSCEs which gave us the chills It was pretty good preparation, considering.... But there's just one thought I keep on remembering "OK lady what the crap do you want me to do with all these pills' To the friends and family who stood beside us through all this Through 4 years while we freaked out and stressed We got lots of phone consults but this was always the best "Um I know ....someone who has burning when they piss..." 2008 SKULL J4STo the shit that we cleaned out of rectums as 1st years To the shit we had to clean off status post heme check To the shit that we studied To the shit that we saw To the shit we subjected ourselves to for a good evaluation To the shit we had to put up with from those above us To the shit that we made up to get a day off post-match To the shit we're in for come July 1st Ortho kids are shopping for their cut off scrub tops Ob Gvners are set for 4 years love hating their jobs Radiology peeps trying to forget their people skills Urology kids can't wait to play with junk all day, no need for frills Surgery peeps are brushing off their superiority complexes Peds people are cringing at attending salaries after taxes Medicine kids are walking in big circles not accomplishing much Family people are getting ready to use emedicine.com as a crutch Psych people are practicing the art of the med check ER people are off to trying to fix somebody then punting the wreck Anesthesiology is drinking coffee and ordering their US Weekly Subscription Pathology is gearing up for formaldehyde addiction And if there’s any specialty that was unscathed Man you guys suck too so everyone calm down and behave Most of you will understand That was all in good fun In the work we're about to embark upon Humility is necessary in everyone To the Temple alums that we met In unlikely places wide and far That actually went on to great things While being just as messed up as we are To all the attendings who opened our eyes To something else that would suit us much better And to the ones who put up with our groveling When we begged with cherries on top for a letter To the nurses who were exceedingly mean Belittling us in the OR and in front of our patients To the most compassionate ones we'd ever seen Who never stopped smiling and eased our frustrations This poem like med school is ending There's only 1 person left to thank or offend, sheesh And at this time there's no use pretending Sorry Coach President, but I still can't spell Ga-veesh So here's to the TUSM Class of '08 Be proud of all we've accomplished In intramural dodgeball victories alone We've exceeded the standards that had been established I believe the last poem ended with "we came, we saw. we kicked ass." I'm not sure what the latin translation is but... Holy shit. We're doctors. We passed! 354 TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE Jenny Chiang Jake Feldman Ralee Miller Dylan FI ipse Jen Au Rachel Sterling Ejiro Eduvie Sadia Shafi Rene Ashworth Paula Murray Courtney Burrell Janis Dossen Eric Stickles Thanks to the Yearbook Staff.
