UNIVERSITY iSckc l of MedicineTHE HIPPOCRATIC OATH I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability ami judgment, this covenant: I will respect the hard- won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow. I will apply for the benefit of the sick, all measures [ that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism. I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeons knife or the chemist's drug. I will not be ashamed to say"I know not,"nor will I fail to call on my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient's recovery. 1 will respect the privacy of my patients,for their problems are not disclosed to me2009 SKULL that the world way know. Most especially I must tread with care in matter of life and death, if it is given we to save a life, all thanks. But it way also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God. I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the persons family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick. I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure. I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm. If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help. Written in 1964 by Louis Lasagna, Academic Dean of the School of Medicine at Tufts University, adapted from The Hippocratic Oath: Text, Translation, and Interpretation, by Ludwig Edelstein. Baltimore:Johns Hopkins Press, 1943.MEDICINE I UNIVERSITY I Tin lS6002DEDICATION Kathleen Reeves, Jane Stringer, Dianne Butera, Kathleen Reeves, MD, Gerald Sterling, PhD. MD carting medical school, for many of us, was a combination of emotions such as accomplishment, excitement, and fear. Accomplishment for finally achieving the difficult task of gaining entry into medical school, excitement at beginning a path of learning chat is truly rewarding, and for many, fears relating to the arduous course of study that would stretch for four long years ahead. Even today, at the end of that course, we are feeling a similar mix of emotions as we are set to begin the next step in the process of being practicing physicians. Throughout all of the journey along this often bumpy road of becoming a doctor, there has been a warming, welcoming, and reassuring presence that has tried, in ways large and small, to make the process just a little bit more kind to the participant. In recognition of her compassion, listening ear, friendly reminders, clear guidance and gentle presence, it is with great pleasure that the Class of 2009 dedicates our yearbook to our friend, colleague, administrator, and mentor, Dr. Kathleen Reeves. Dr. Reeves was born in Dubois, PA, the youngest of three children. Although many of us know her as mild mannered, Dr. Reeves spent time in her youth jumping coal train cars, scaling mine shafts, and playing basketball for her local high school. When not risking her life, as the child of hard working parents, she spent significant amounts of time with her grandmother,whom she describes as a 'great influence." According co Dr. Reeves, her grandmother taught her how to play chess by age five because she believed that knowing the game well would yield lifelong benefits. She also encouraged Dr. Reeves’ musical talents which served her well in medical school when at times money was particularly tight, she would sing for her supper at the Caribou Cafe. Dr. Reeves’ considerable singing talents earned her awards, a college scholarship, and various singing engagements. Dr. Reeves also attributes to her grandmother, an appreciation co "celebrate discipline in life’s small tasks, enjoy the moment, and appreciate the great sacrifices that parents and others often make to care for children.' It was this philosophy along with an interest in liberal arts that Dr. Reeves decided to attend Juniata College to major in Religious Philosophy and Biology. While at Juniata, she acquired an appreciation for teaching and seriously considered becoming a professor of religious philosophy. Participating in a group of students that organized weekly lectures for Sunday services, she found herself increasingly drawn to public speaking. On one occasion when she had co speak extemporaneously on behalf of her speaking partner, not only did she launch in and deliver an unexpected address, she received significant praise for her presentation. Her friend and colleague, Dianne Butera, calls it “eloquence on the fly.” She notes, "I have watched in amazement as Kathy Reeves pulls threads of thoughts together in a matter of moments. She possesses a keen ability to see the big picture while understanding strategy of individual moves. That and her continual pondering of ideas, and perhaps most importantly, her passion for sharing enables her to be a wonderful mentor, teacher, friend, and of course, doctor.’ Though the lure of an academic life, as a professor,TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE was strong while she was in college, Dr. Reeves was progressively drawn toward medicine. She wanted a more hands-on helping experience and that, for her, the best way to practice both was to become a physician. This led her to Jefferson Medical College in 1987. Initially, expecting to go into family medicine, practicing in a rural community, she soon discovered a love for caring lor children and decided to become a pediatrician. Given her maternal qualities that many of us witness, this comes as no surprise. Residency was spent at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. where Dr. Reeves gained an interest in healthcare disparities and serving children in underserved communities. During this time, she came to realize that all people "want to be healthy; therefore we, as physicians, need to give them the benefit of the doubt," which for her is one of the most important aspects of medical practice. As a result of her experiences in various com- munities, along with interest in international issues, she traveled to Honduras where she participated in a pediatric clinic and deepened her commitment to public health. While at Cincinnati, Dr. Reeves met the love of her life, fellow pediatrician Dr. Edisio Semeao, whom she married in August 1995. She returned to Philadelphia with him, accepting a position in the pediatrics department of Crozer Chester Medical Center in Chester, PA, as he completed a fellowship in gastroenterology at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. As pediatricians, they both knew they wanted a family and had their first child, Ben, in 1997. Their daughter, Annie, was born in 2004. Though very different in nature, Ben stoic, reserved, and watchful; Annie, willful, opinionated, and gregarious, both are characters, bringing much energy, excitement, and enjoyable challenges to their lively family.Dr. Reeves' career has taken many twists and turns. Hired as a hospitalist at Crozer-Chcster Medical Center, it quickly became evident that her strong leadership skills would serve her well as Crozers first program director, when Crozer assumed Hahnemann’s Pediatric Residency Program. She enjoyed this position where she honed her teaching and mentoring skills, receiving numerous teaching awards. From this experience, as well as her initial interest in becoming a college professor, she decided to join Temple University’s School of Medicine and jumped at the opportunity to serve students as the Associate Dean for Student Affairs. As Associate Dean for Student Affairs, as well as a practicing clinician, mother, wife, and friend, many have come to appreciate Dr. Reeves' dedication for being a voice for students as well as patients. We also appreciate her listening ear. Working alongside fellow student advocate Dr. Sterling, a colleague and friend whom she feels quite lucky to have as a fellow Dean’s Staff member, Dr. Reeves has been able to bring her life experiences and help the student body. As Dr. Sterling notes, "We complement our approaches to working with students and I marvel at her ability to know just what to say and how to say it. She is a wonderful advocate for our students, her patients and ultimately the community. I am lucky to have her as a colleague and friend." Many will remember her interest in the humanities as well as in community service. Many have appreciated her ability to foster student interest in these areas, further strengthening Temple’s commitment and support for the residents of North Philadelphia. We also will remember her commitment to role of professionalism in medical education, her facilitation of discussions relating to current issues in the field of medicine, and the frequent reminder of the privilege to care for people." Throughout our four years at Temple, when problems of a professional or personal nature have arisen, or simply to hear a caring voice, many students have found that sending a quick email to kreeves(5)temple. edu has often helped find a solution. As we move into our new worlds, we also take with us her belief that compassion is key to our aspirations, attitudes, and actions. It is without hesitation or question that the Class of 2009 is indebted to Dr. Reeves for her continued presence and assistance in our education and in helping to make Temple University School of Medicine and the educational process a little more kind to all of us. Congratulations, Dr. Kathleen Reeves. -Brad Hayward 6C The Class of 2009HOODERS HONORABLE TRADITION Ci. Cruz-Schuvone Or. Sterling ditcun future career goals. 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 Associate Professor Department of Family and Community Medicine Professor Vice Chairperson, Education Department of Surgery2009 SKULL 11 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 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. Top: G. Crus- Schutone meet with Dr . Sterling Reeve .

Temple University School of MedicineTEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE TO 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 your mind, arc 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 man’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 arc 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 how to 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 electroencephalophagram 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 lighting for2009 SKULL 25 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 by a glorious ideal. 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 sec 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. Learn 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 csthetically through the beauty of art. Remember that the important thing in life is to be great, not 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 company, 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, educators, pioneers, rebels, and martyrs 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 who answered destiny's cal to greatness when you decide "to be a doctor."

In a Creator who knit our essence with devour precision. As children it was encouraged by each teacher who gives us a single pearl of knowledge, and each coach who trained in us a skill. Our family with love and care give us the talents to achieve before we knew that we wanted to, and with their kind admonitions directed us further down the path. The education we received was nor easy, but it was possible with the assistance of professors and friends.

Rhode Island Internal Medicine V MC , ------V, Choosing a Specialty Many medical students sweat and fret when it comes time to choose which residency is right for them. They try imagining their future, asking their loved ones, and sometimes even try "no guarantee" questionnaires in a desperate attempt to pick the right held of medicine for their future career. The problem is simply not knowing 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 $ % !!(3 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.

Fdher, MV C a troerteroio y Section To The Class of 2009 Best Wishes For A Rewarding Career In Medicine Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences Jessie, 1 wrote you a "top 10" list when you started college, and then you were sad all day. I haven't tried again for 8 years, but now I will. So, here are the top 10 reasons to be excited about becoming Dr. Fields. 1) You will be on speed dial for every family member for every medical question. 2) You'll have significantly more authority to criticize "House" 3) You'll join a field with a rich tradition of fine dining and fun events which don't happen much any longer. You actually may not even get pens. 4) You'll have a longer white coat, which will make you seem taller (or maybe shorter, hard to say) 5) You'll have future lawyers like me always looking out for your best interest... (though it's not obvious there will be many just like me) 6) You'll be free of tests and have great working hours for at least the next few years (ha) 7) You'll have "Mr. and Dr." on the envelope 8) You'll have a longer white coat, with bigger pockets for additional snacks 9) You'll have more great dinner conversation topics. 10) You'll save lives, which is important V Gene, Life holds many gifts and none are more precious than having a son like you. Congratulations!!! We are so proud. -Love, Dad. Mom Rachel Brother; Steph, and I are proud...Way to go All kidding aside, I think you're joining the noblest profession there is, and 1 am so happy for you. Love, Dan I know how hard you've worked to get this far, and I'm so proud of you.
