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 the hoods. The origin of the hood lies with the Celts and 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 covering to protect against frigid temperatures. Gradually, it was integrated into the academic system with much symbolic significance. Now, the wearing of hoods symbolizes authority, high standing, or a new graduate’s institution and degree. A hood is always black in color, but the edges and lining have individual signifi- cance. 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 color representative of a field of study. The official colors of Temple University are cherry and white. The dark green velvet signifies medicine. One of the great continuing traditions is the presence of hooders - individuals who symbolically bestow the medical degree upon each graduate. Each senior class chooses four individuals to assist with the placement of the 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. Each hooder has committed themselves to challenging the minds of medical students and encouraging the development of future doctors to this great profession. Thank you Dr. Garg, for showing us how to be ninjas. Thank you Dr. Barbe, for staying late and dissecting the hard parts. Thank you Dr. Bettiker, for expanding our horizons. Thank you Dr. Ashby, for impressing the importance of fundamentals. 4 HOODERS 2014U: _ JLa fit DEDICATION E JLdVach year, the graduating class dedicates their yearbook to an outstanding faculty member whom they feel has had a significant impact on their development as physicians. It is the privilege of the class of 2014 to dedicate this year’s Skull Yearbook to Dr. Alisa Peet for her ongoing commitment and kindness to her students. Starting from our first few days in medical school, Dr. Peet has been an integral part of our education. As students we’ve worked with her through our Docting courses and our Medicine rotations. Now as fourth years, Dr. Peet is not only a mentor and an educator, but also a voice of guidance and reassurance. In the hospital, she always made sure we were an integral part of the team. Our questions, opinions, and suggestions mattered and we were able to make meaningful contributions to our patient care. Through these final months, as we approach residency, once again Dr. Peet stands with us as a mentor to help us navigate the decisions that will impact our lives. Dr. Peet is always there with a quick response to our stressed emails, words of comfort to ease our anxieties and straightforward, honest advice about our futures. Born and raised in New York City, Dr. Peet found her interests in medicine began early on when she volunteered 5 DEDICATIOND DEDICATION at a hospital during high school. Dr. Peet moved to San Francisco soon after earning her degree in Psychology from Yale University. There, she worked with a Forensic Child Psychologist and parttime at a halfway house caring mostly for residents with schizophrenia. During her time there, she also volunteered at a rehabilitation hospital where she rediscovered her love for medicine. Dr. Peet moved back to the East Coast, completing her Post Baccalaureate at Boston University. She matriculated to Temple School of Medicine and fell in love with the Temple community. “I went to medical school to be a Primary Care doctor for patients in an underserved community and I feel really lucky that I have the opportunity to do that”. A Temple School of Medicine and Temple Internal Medicine Residency graduate, Dr. Peet now dedicates countless hours teaching and helping new generations of Temple medical students and residents. “I love being at Temple. I love the community and caring for patients in the community, and I love working with the students and helping them.” Dr. Peet is not only a wonderful teacher and role model, she is also an excellent mentor. One student said “Dr. Peet sacrifices her time to make sure that students are doing well mentally and academically. She always 6 DEDICATION-------------------------------------------------------------□ made herself available whenever issues came up and if she hadn’t heard from me in a while, she would check in on me”. Dr. Peet’s accomplishments are innumerable, from graduating as a member of Alpha Omega Alpha, to being Chief Resident, and the first member of her family to become a doctor. Arguably for many of us though, it is her dedication to teaching and devotion to her students and patients that has made her our mentor and role model. Dr. Peet, on behalf of the entire 2014 class, we would like to thank you for all your contributions and for the impact you have had on our lives. If you could have any super power, what would it be? Maybe to fly so I could get places quickly whenever I wanted. What advice would you give your younger self? Don’t be afraid to be wrong or fail. Since you are such an avid reader, what is your favorite book? I cant pick one - I just read A Week in Winter by Maeve Binchy, that I loved. If you could go on vacation anywhere in the world, where would it be? The mountains anywhere. Had you not become a physician, what do you think you would have done? A teacher. 7 DEDICATION8 TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE‘Than fyou to our administration, facufty and support staff!! The class of 2014 is extremely grateful for all your efforts. Faculty: It is through your knowledge and guidance that we were able to develop the foundation that will make us great thinkers, scientists and physicians. Thank you for your patience for the concepts that may have taken us awhile to grasp. Thank you for your dedication to education and mentorship. Bookstore staff: From our first purchase of Netter’s to our final clerkship books, we thank you for your kindness in directing us to the right study books. Librarians: What’s a catalog again? Thanks for helping us find the books we needed, for looking the other way when we brought pizza into a study room, for lending us laptops and for your continued encouragement throughout these hard four years. Kresge mailroom staff: Your presence, just a building away, has not been forgotten. Thank you for your dedication in ensuring that everyone in MERB recieved their packages and that our initial correspondence to Temple as mere pre-medical students was directed to the right place. Maintenance staff: In our times of stress, we may not have cleaned up behind ourselves like our mother’s taught us. We thank you for your patience and for keeping our building beautiful. Financial services: Thank you for helping us navigate the very complicated Student health: Thank you for keeping us healthy through these stressful four years. Technical support: Thank you for helping to make sure our class time ran smoothly. Without you, the home dwellers of 2014 would have never class captured in the comfort of their PJs. loan process. We would have been lost without you. 9 THANK YOULarry R. Kaiser, MD Dean Senior Executive Vice President for the Health Sciences President and CEO, Arthur M.

Kupas, M.D. Linda Famiglio, M.D. Congratulations! You have demonstrated that you have the knowledge and skills to be outstanding physicians and you can be proud of your accomplishments. The faculty and staff at Geisinger Health System have enjoyed being part of the medical school education for many of you. As an organization, we strive to HEAL, TEACH, DISCOVER, and SERVE. The skills that you develop in medical school are the foundation. Your challenge is to build on these skills as you enter the next phase of life-long learning. We know that you are prepared to provide excellence in patient care as both future leaders and team members in systems that will increasingly require innovation and quality. If you spent time at Geisinger as a clinical campus student, or simply as a student on a single rotation, we hope that you gained some insight into the importance of system design and innovations that lead to optimal patient outcomes. We hope that you also realize that it is still an incredible honor to be fortunate enough to share the relationship between a physician and a patient. As you progress through your careers and become responsible for creating the healthcare systems of the future, remember the words of our founder, Abigail Geisinger,"Make it the Best”. Sincerely, Douglas F.

Despite the fact that you may think that will be just continuing your education you will soon learn that Medicine is a continuous education. The learning will be lifelong and your patients will be your teachers. You are embarking on your career at a transformative and you will be part of that change. No longer is our job simply to take care of the sick but we must promote wellness. Population management is the new norm and this will have a profound effect on us all. Inpatient admissions are decreased across the country and the hospital no longer is the central point of care. For that matter we are seeing a shift even from the outpatient clinical setting to the home especially with the use of newer technologies. Though you may have memorized a lot of information during your four years at Temple all of the factual information that you need is as close as your smartphone. What I hope we have taught you here is how best to use that wealth of information and how to think critically. I assure you that has been our aim and we will continue to refine our curriculum to best prepare our students. I hope that you are proud to say that you are “Temple made”. All of you are ambassadors for Temple and I’m confident that you will represent us well. You have reached a major milestone not just in your career but in your life. My best wishes to all of you as you embark on this next phase. Larry R. Kaiser, MD, FACS Dean, Temple University School of Medicine Senior Executive Vice President for the Health Sciences, Temple University President and CEO, Temple University Health System Professor of Surgery, Cardiothoracic Surgery 74 CONGRATULATIONS FROM OUR DEANCONGRATULATIONS FROM OUR CLASS PRESIDENT I hope that you felt supported by SGA during your medical school experience. It has certainly been a pleasure, for myself and for the class representatives, to work with all of you and to share in your creativity and passion. I will forever remember your dodgeball uniforms, your dance moves at select neighborhood establishments, your efforts to help the North Philadelphia community (remember, there once was no medicinal garden next to MERB!), and the unique efforts you devoted to so many student groups and clinics. The Temple community is richer for your efforts. Dear Classmates, The long road from orientation to graduation has finally reached its conclusion. What a tremendous journey it has been. As first years, we never could have predicted the fun times we would have, the friendships we would make, the patients we would help, and the challenges we would overcome. Our class in particular seemed to have a unique spirit, forged from the special characteristics of each of its members. This spirit was palpable whenever we were together. Even in a MERB lecture hall, right before a class would begin, one could sit back and absorb the warmth as everyone crowded together laughing, joking, glad to be collectively on this journey. This spirit remained strong when we worked together on the wards - sharing our excitement, our knowledge, our challenges, and our triumphs. We took care of each other and enjoyed the twists and turns that come with practicing medicine. It was a pleasure to take this journey with you. As we direct our attention now to the big world ahead, forever as physicians, I hope that you will remember your classmates, teachers, and patients from these 4 years in North Philadelphia. Remember why you chose medicine, how hard you worked to learn it, and never forget the people who helped you get to where you are today. I wish you all the best, and look forward to hearing about the many ways in which you will all surely make this world a better place! Fondly, BenWormser 75 CONGRATULATIONS FROM OUR PRESIDENTLivingston, NJ Washington University in Saint Louis B. A. Biology, Jewish Islamic and Near Eastern Studies Hillary Aaron, M.D. AU of my gratitude to my family and friends whose support, motivation, and patience have encouraged me throughout the past four years. To the class of 2014: When I started medical school, I never could have imagined what a quality group of people would surround me throughout this journey. When I look back, I will remember hours spent together in die library, countless'chill spot" lunch dates, late nights at Fado, overnight calls that felt like they would never end, ski trips, beach weekends, engagements, weddings, babies, and most of all, lots of laughs. I have had such a wonderful support system and have made some lifelong friends. And to Ryan: Thank you for truly being my family and my number one fan throughout this crazy experience. 1 fed immeasurably luck)' that I have had you by my side through all the ups and downs. To my family: Lindsay and Stephanie, thank you for all of your encouragement, understanding, and innumerable Snapchats. 'Ihc line between sisters and best friends becomes blurrier by the day. And to Mom and Dad, I cant thank you enough for your encouraging words, your listening ears, and most of all, your generosity. You never questioned the sacrifices 1 had to make in the name of medical school, and for that I am so grateful. You have made the past four years possible, in more way than you even know, and I hope I will continue to make you proud as I (finally!) start my career. Thank you for being such wonderful role models. 76 TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINELancaster, Pennsylvania University of Pittsburgh B.S. Molecular Biology B. A.

I would like to thank God and my family (Dad. mom, and my sister Mira) for their continued support throughout all of my years of schooling including the past 4 years of medical school. They have always been there to listen to my struggles as well as celebrate my achievements. I could not be more thankful to have such a wonderful and loving family. 1 would also like to take this opportunity to thank my friends. From the childhood friends I grew up with to the new friends I made in medical school, I definitely would not have been where I am today without them. Many say, “laughter is the best medicine" and I am thankful to those around me for always putting a smile on my face. Last but not least, 1 would like to thank all of the attending doctors, residents, faculty members, and patients who have advised, taught, and guided me on my path of becoming a physician. I would like to end with one of my favorite and inspirational quotes from P.S.M."In the joy of others, lies our own."
