That I will be loyal to the profession of medicine and just and generous to its members;
That I will lead my life and practice my art in uprightness and honor;
That into whatsoever house I shall enter, it shall be for the good of the sick to the utmost of my power, I holding myself aloof from wrong, from corruption, and from the tempting of others to vice;
That I will excercise my art solely for the cure of my patients, and will give no drug, perform no operation for a criminal purpose, even if solicited;
That whatsoever I shall see or hear of the lives of others which is not fitting to be spoken, I will keep inviolably secret.
These things I do promise. As I am faithful to this my oath may happiness and good repute be ever mine. The opposite if I shall be forsworn.

Kathleen Dave Stanley Russin
eonInterview by Justin Nichols
Tell us about yourself:
I grew up locally in Bristol, a small town in Lower Bucks County, PA After graduating from Holy Family College,
I did research for a year on the Human Genome Project while applying to medical school. Growing up I always wanted to be an orthodontist, but then decided medicine was for me. After graduating from MCP-Hahnemann School of Medicine, I trained in family medicine in a local community program. Interestingly, shortly after completing my training, I started working in the Temple Emergency Department and have never looked back! It’s been great!
In addition to being able to work with wonderful colleagues and patients in a setting that I enjoy, I have been able to further my interest in medical education and work with the students regularly. I love it!
What have you enjoyed about being in medical education?
Simply put, I love working with the students. Particularly. I love the "Aha!” moment students experience throughout their clinical rotations. I can read it on their faces when they truly "get it”, whether it is specific physical exam finding, something I’m showing them under the microscope, or a skill they’ve mastered in the simulation center. Being part of that moment is very rewarding and I don’t think I’ll ever tire of it. It is those moments that continue to drive me to give 100% and to aim to be a good role model for them.
What are some important lessons you’ve learned along the way in your career?
One thing I've learned is that every patient interaction should be an individualized encounter for that patient. Protocols, clinical decision rules and algorithms may drive what we do, but they are not everything. Patients
continued on page 6want to be listened to, and devoting undivided attention to that patient in that moment means more than we sometimes realize. I know I've done my job when a patient thanks me for listening to them. I’ve also learned to be welcoming to opportunities that may present themselves, sometimes unexpectedly, and to not stay too rigid to a career plan. I trained in one specialty, but practice in the environment of another. If you asked me in medical school if this was my plan, the answer would have been "no”. However, an opportunity presented itself and I followed my instincts directing me down this path.
And I’m so grateful I did.
What’s a challenge you faced in your career?
As I mentioned, I am board certified in family medicine, but have worked nearly my entire professional career in our emergency department Initially, it was a challenge to leave the familiarity of family medicine training and that environment and translate my training to the emergency department setting. Getting acclimated to the type of thinking required in the emergency department and
same time. I also wrestled with whether I was being disloyal to my chosen specialty and my training, but as time went on I felt suited for the work I was doing and like I found "the perfect fit".
Who is someone who has inspired you during the course of your career?
During my residency training, I had the honor of working with Dr. Ken Patrick, currently a hospitalist at Fox Chase Cancer Center. Nearly everything I do when interacting with patients, including the way I phrase some things, is modeled after him. He taught me the art of medicine is as important as the science.
Since my early days in the Emergency Department, I have drawn inspiration from the leadership. When faced with a challenging professional situation, I often start formulating my solution by thinking "what would Bob do?”. In addition to my EM colleagues, Sharon Mattia has been a voice of reason, understanding and a wealth of knowledge. She inspires me with her unconditional support, guidance and confidence in me.
I am lucky to have a family that inspires and motivates me. I grew up in a family of educators and my father, a retired high school English teacher, was quite a fixture in his school district I sensed his dedication to his students from a very young age and I'd like to think I inherited that quality from him.
My husband, Len, and daughter, Sophia, have beenvery supportive and encouraging with any career venture I’ve embraced, and I want to make them proud. I am inspired by the hard work and determination I've seen my daughter display on the softball field and basketball court. I have been amazed by her calm demeanor under pressure and am excited to see her leadership skills developing. I hope to be as good a role model for her as she is for me.
What are some of your hobbies outside of medicine?
My family and I like to stay active and enjoy being outdoors. When I am not practicing sports with my daughter or cheering for her from the sidelines. I enjoy baking, working out, and crocheting. Recently we have had lots of fun visiting different amusement parks and riding the hyper coasters!
What is your favorite song?
That's a good question. I associate music with different life experiences, so it is hard to pick just one. I have a soft spot for Frank Sinatra, as his music reminds me of spending time with family. One of my favorite songs is Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence". I also like what my daughter would call "power songs - songs that we listen to before sporting events; right now, my favorite is "Feel Invincible", by Skillet Very motivating!
Any pieces of advice for the Class of 2018 as we transition into residency?
I think you are all going to be wonderful physicians. Staying true to yourself and being genuine in your interactions with your patients will take you far. Never forget what it is like to learn something for the first time; this will help you relate to new learners. Remember to listen to your patients; they have so much to teach you. Always remain professional; a smile and a "thank you goes a long way.
There may be some challenging times during residency and throughout your career, but you’ve worked very, very hard and I’m convinced you can handle anything that comes your way. I'm so proud of you all.
I wish you continued success!

Class of 2018:
I want to extend my warmest congratulations to the Class of 2018 of the Lewis Katz School of Medicine a Temple University and especially to our class of Temple St. Luke’s regional campus students who have spent their entire second, third, and fourth years training at St. Luke's University Hospital in Bethlehem. Thank you for all your efforts to develop and enrich our regional campus, as well as our local community. I also want to congratulate the many students who rotated with us for their required and elective courses.
You should be proud of your accomplishments. We certainly are proud of you. It has been a true pleasure to see you develop into knowledgeable, caring, and skillful young physicians. As you are aware, the education of physician occurs over three stages - undergraduate - medical school, graduate - residency and fellowships, and post graduate - continuing medical education. You are embarking on your second stage, beginning a residency. You have learned a great deal of information in the past four years. Now you will be applying the knowledge and the skills you learned for the treatment of patients in the specialty you have chosen. You have been taught the importance of continuing education. We know that you will provide excellent care to your patients. We urge you to remember that you will always be an ambassador for the Lewis Katz School of Medicine and St. Luke's University Health Network.

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 have enjoyed being part of the medical school education for many of you. As an organization, we strive to demonstrate caring in all we do.

We hope that you also realize that it is still an incredible honor to be fortunate enough to shore the relationship between a physician and a patient.

Temple UiDEAN OF SCHOOL
E Congratulations, Physicians of the Class of 2018.
You have achieved an important milestone: graduating from medical school. Your faculty and I are proud of you. You should likewise take pride in having earned your degree from the Lewis Katz School of Medicine. An MD from Temple connotes clinical excellence, social conscience, and academic rigor. This credential will empower you for the entirety of your
The faculty residents and patients have taught you much these past four years. But there’s one thing no medical school can give you: an innate y MD, FACS desire to make a difference in the world. You had plenty of that when you
came here. And it is the most essential element of doctoring.
So keep fanning that flame in the months and years ahead. That, more than anything else, will fortify and renew you. We face daunting challenges on the road ahead in health care. But if you stay close to your calling and true to your goals, you will excel no matter what the conditions.
You are a member of the Class of 2018. Take pride and know you are exceptionally well-prepared.
Hats off to you.

»ar Class of 2018,
ingratulations Doctors. We made it!
. ant to thank you all for granting me the privilege of being the President of the 3ss of 2018 for these past four years. It has been an honor to represent you and jrk with you to improve LKSOM.
•efore starting medical school, I remember feeling apprehensive about the road ead. I asked for help from everyone I could on how to survive medical school, he advice I received could be summarized by the same few comments: "Work rd. you can’t learn everything, your friends are your life line, find time for yourself, ery other medical student is just as terrif ied as you. rely on your loved ones, and ost importantly, never forget what brought you to medicine, treating patients."
our years have passed since we were newly-minted medical students with clean oite coats. Together we have persevered. Together we tackled anatomy, raced rough RATs, and completed Step 1 and Step Z We performed H Ps, presented
o rounds, and connected with patients. We started a student run clinic, published ■earch papers, and made an impact on the North Philadelphia community.
we near the end of medical school. I find myself asking a similar question as before: "How will I survive residency?" Again, the response is the same: "Work rd. accept that you will make mistakes and learn from them, your team is your line, find time for yourself, every other intern is just as terrified as you, rely on ur loved ones, and most importantly, never forget what brought you to medicine.
• ?ating patients." While it was not always easy to abide by this advice, it helped us not only survive medical school, but to succeed. I believe the same will be true or residency.
•Congratulations on the magnificent accomplishment of completing medical school, we head our separate ways. I am truly excited to say that I began my training th each one of you. I hope that our paths may cross again during our future ca-ers. Good luck, doctors!

A wise man once said, “never let the truth get in the way of a funny story." Somehow the joke went too far...they are letting me graduate. I even get to take home that heart-listening thingy! This elaborate decade-long prank would not have been possible without my hideous family, whose love and support never wavered, despite my dwindling numbers in the polls. Thank you to my loyal friends, old and new, who kept me humble when times were cushy.
To the elite members of Friendforce One, Beaver Bounce, RWG, and my Rodman family, you are my sources of endless laughter. I sincerely hope it stays that way for as long as this ancient troll still trolls. I must also pay tribute to Teddi. sigil of house Albornoz. The faustian bargain we made to create my sentient pile of fuzz was completely worth it.
Miss you all already, good luck everyone!JORDAN YARDAIN AMAR, M.D.

First and foremost, I would like to thank God for blessing me with the opportunity to embark on this journey. I would also like to thank my wonderful parents and admirable brother, Hari, for their unconditional love, support, and guidance. They have been there for me every step of the way and I could not be more grateful to have such a loving family. I would like to thank my friends, both old and new, for all the countless laughs and memories. I could not have done it without you guys. Last, but not least, I would like to thank all the physicians, residents, and faculty members that have spent their time to teach, advise, and mold me into the best clinician I can be. I’ll end with one of my favorite quotes from P.S.M, "In the joy of others, lies our own.” Congratulations Class of 2018, we did it!!BEVERLY ANDERSON, M.D.

Medical school has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding adventures I have ever had. I am so fortunate to have met all of my classmates and to have made such great friends. I just wanted to say thank you to my mom. dad. Ate and the rest of my family for their love and support these past four years. A big thank you to Josh as well for always believing in me, especially when I had trouble believing in myself. He is the world s greatest cheerleader and the biggest optimist. I also want to say thank you to my wonderful medical school friends for giving me such amazing memories and for making the hardest times bearable. Lastly, I would like to thank the Temple community for teaching me everything I know about medicine and for making me more passionate about patient care than I thought possible.

We choose to [do certain things] not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”

It feels like the Scooby-Doo power team met for the first time in anatomy lab just yesterday, so it’s hard to believe that we’re now graduating. I could not have survived the past four years without the unwavering support of my best friend, favorite hiking buddy I travel companion, and love of my life, Justin - this degree is as much yours as it is mine. Thank you to my family for all their love and support as well - Mom. Dad. Mom2. Dad2, Tina, Toad, Jana-ki, Julian, Derek.

A wise man once said "we all make choices but in the end our choices make us,” I bet he never thought something like this would happen. Well the joke is on the world because now I’m a doctor and people’s lives are in my hands. Seriously though, I cannot thank my family enough. Without your endless love and support I do not think I would have been able to make it through this long journey. Thank you to my new friends from Temple as well. You guys made what could have been the hardest four years of my life into some of the best years of my life. It has been a long journey but it was definitely worth it.

Once more the Ghost bore away before the storm, this time so submerging herself that for some seconds I thought she would never reappear. Even the wheel, quite a deal higher than the waist, was covered and swept again and again. At such moments I felt strangely alone with God, alone with him watching the chaos of his wrath. And then the wheel would reappear, and Wolf Larsen’s broad shoulders, his hands gripping the spokes and holding the schooner to the course of his will, himself an earth-god dominating the storm, flinging its descending waters from him and riding it to his own ends. And oh, the marvel of it! the marvel of it! That tiny men should live and breathe and work, and drive so frail a contrivance of wood and cloth through so tremendous an elemental strife.STEPHEN R.

My time here at Temple has undeniably been one of the most chal-lenging periods of my life. However, it has also been the most rewarding. It is hard to fathom that this journey has come to an end. but I must remember that another is just about to begin. As I move onto the next chapter of my career, I cannot do so without thanking loved ones who have supported me every step of the way.
I’d like to thank my mom, dad, and sister for their unconditional love and support throughout my medical school journey. I d also like to thank my beautiful fiancee for continually encouraging me to pursue my dreams and for sticking by my side, through thick and thin. I am forever grateful to have been blessed with such a loving, supportive family and will strive to always make them proud.

After 23-years of school, I am finally a doctor.
This achievement would not be possible without my friends and family who have supported me through this wild ride. I thank my parents for their constant encouragement and willingness to help me in any way. I also thank my sister for the amazing food she'd cook when I was rotating in Pittsburgh!
When I started medical school. I thought my goal would be to learn every detail about the prevention, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment for all diseases. However, the most important skill I learned was to have an awareness of the unlearnable material. Because we live in an age of unparalleled and instant access to an abundance of medical information, we forget that there is so much more we don't understand than what we do.
To the rest of the graduating class, congratulations!

Medical school has been a wonderful journey filled with life lessons. I am so thankful for the support of my family and friends, who have been so patient and understanding as I’ve moved through the process of obtaining my medical degree. I pray that one day I will be able to pour all of the love and encouragement they have given me back into them.

Wow guys, it’s been quite a road. I have often said that I’ve aged much more than four years during my time in medical school, and I definitely couldn’t have done it without support from many different sources. First of all, my parents with their unwavering support have always been proud of me, no matter what my mental state may be. My fiance and roommate both put up with my emotional frustrations throughout medical school, and despite that, have stuck with me. Lastly, to all my fellow St. Lukers, you have become my second family. I can’t wait to see everything that you accomplish, because I know you will all do great work. God Bless!NICHOLAS P.

It’s surreal that the past four years are coming to an end and it is time to start the next chapter of my life as a physician. Thank you to my wonderful family for your love and support through the years. I would not be here without your unwavering faith in me. Thank you to my teachers and mentors for your guidance and for molding me into a physician.

My parents. Arleen and Richard, you have so much confidence in me; sometimes probably too much. You both have been incredible role models and I am lucky to have had the past 26 years to learn from your mistak... GREATNESS!
Steve, you have been a constant source of inspiration. Your consistency in academic and professional excellence is unparalleled by everything, except my golf swing.
Rebecca, there are no jokes that satisfy our relationship or my admiration of how hard you have worked along with me the past 4 years. You are destined for success and I can’t wait to see what our future holds.

It has all been worth it. Thank you to my family, my beloved and my friends. Special thank you to my grandmother and great-grandmother who inspired me to enter the field of medicine.

I’d like to thank my Mom, Dad, and two brothers, Steve and Jason, for their love and support throughout my whole life, especially these past 4 years. I’d also like to thank Mike, Andrew. Lloyd, Adam, and Katy for being a great support system, and giving me advice that allowed me to navigate the difficulties in medical school. Lastly, I'm thankful for Caitlin for always being a phone call away, even while studying to become a doctor herself, and helping me keep the big picture in mind. I love all of you.

I still remember the shocked faces during orientation when I told classmates I had a 6 month old boy at home. I remember my shocked face when they told me Brian Jr. would be 4 years old when we finished. And now he is 4. It’s shocking. Plus. Rob was born 2 weeks before step 1 and our new baby should be born a few weeks before graduation. People ask how I did it. It’s simple: Anna stayed home and pretty much did it all by herself. Plus, my goals were pretty realistic: "stay married and don’t fail anything”. Anyways, thanks to Anna for doing everything for us. Thanks to the boys for keeping me sane and teaching me patience. Thanks to the faculty and classmates who spent time teaching me about more than just medicine. Glad it’s over. On to new adventures in residency.

"No man is a failure, who has friends."
— Mark Twain
I cannot believe that our time in medical school is coming to an end, but the world cannot wait any longer for you all to be the physicians that it needs. Having you as friends and classmates has made these four years exciting and fun in between all of the hard work, and I would not trade those times for anything. I want to thank all of you for the privilege it has been to work with you, both in Bethlehem and in Philadelphia. I know that I would not have succeeded if it were not for the help and encouragement that I always knew I could count on from you, my friends.
