Today's graduation ceremony is a manifestation of an ancient rite of passage in the modem context. An important part of the graduation ceremony is the giving of the hoods. The origin of the hood lies with the Celts and the Druids (Celtic priests). Among the Celts, only the Druids wore mantles, which had hoods attached to them as a mark of their rank in society. In the schools of the Middle Ages, the hoods were worn as a covering to resist the frigid temperatures. Gradually, it was integrated into the academic system with much symbolic significance. Now, the wearing of the hoods symbolizes a kind of authority, a high standing, or a new graduate's institution and degree. A hood is always black in color, but the edges 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 a field of study. The official colors of Temple University are cherry and white. The dark green signifies the field of medicine. One of the great continuing traditions is the presence of hooders - individuals who symbolically bestow the medical degree upon each graduate. The medical school has chosen six individuals to assist with the placement of these hoods. These distinguished members of the faculty were selected not only for their superior quality of teaching, but also for their passion, hard work, and dedication. The hooders have committed themselves to challenging the minds of medical students and encouraging us as future doctors to maintain the integrity of the profession. It was from these mentors that we were able to become true physicians. Oneida Arosarena, MD Karen Lin, MD, MPH Thank you, Dr. Lin, for keeping us aground with your reality checks and for teaching us to use our common sense, even in uncommon situations. Thank you, Dr. Arosarena, for your commitment to excellence in our education and for being an amazing role model and mentor. Vincent Cowell, MD Thank you, Dr. Cowell, for demonstrating the best of patient care and student education both in and out of the OR. You are truly a role model for all students. Natalia Ortiz, MD Thank you, Dr. Ortiz, for being a role model for kindness, compassion, and advocacy in the hospital and in the community. 4 Kathleen Dave, PhD Thank you, Dr. Dave, for being an amazing guide and mentor to our class and for the time spent ensuring our success. Lewis Katz School of Medicine Steven Popoff, PhD Thank you, Dr. Popoff, for acclimating us to medical school and for making sure we are ready for the next step in our journey.This yearbook is dedicated to David O’Gurek, MD 1. Tell us about yourself. I grew up in Summit Hill, a small town in the anthracite coal region of northeastern Pennsylvania. After getting a taste of Philadelphia during my four years at St. Joseph’s University, I completed medical school and residency in southcentral Pennsylvania at the Penn State College of Medicine and the Lancaster General Family Medicine Residency Program. My passion for education and urban community health brought me to Temple in 2013, having the honor of serving the North Philadelphia community and the inspiring students of LKSOM. I currently live in South Philly, interestingly enough, just 2 blocks from where my maternal ancestors lived when they arrived in Philadelphia from Italy. A die-hard Philadelphia sports fan, I can often be found roaming about the city; cheering on the Phillies, Eagles, Sixers, and Flyers; and in South Philly Italian bakeries and restaurants. 2. What inspired you to go into medicine? Growing up in a close-knit, small town, I have been largely influenced by my own family’s personal history that always shared with the next generation the values of service, advocacy, and community. My parents still remember me telling them I was quitting school in 3rd grade to get a paper route and laugh that I went on to complete so much schooling after that. My fascination with science, humanities, and policy shepherded an interest in medicine through seeing the impact that community physicians had in their communities. Many small, impactful encounters developing relationships with people and seeing how physicians can build their own sense of community with their patients fostered a profession where I can carry out my family’s legacy. Temple University 53. Person who inspired you over the course of your career? While there have been many people who inspired me directly and indirectly, my parents, Dave and Patti, are the voice in my head, the caring in my heart, the passion in my soul, and the service in my spirit. They have always inspired me to the best version of myself and challenged me to shoot for the moon. Their coaching, understanding, and support are continuously reflected in how I carry myself with patients, students, colleagues, and communities. Standing behind me at every step of my career, I first learned from them the importance of being there for patients and for communities. A huge part of who I am today is a direct reflection of how inspirational they have been to me. 4. What advice do you want to offer our graduating class? I frequently share with applicants interviewing for a spot at LKSOM that what I believe truly makes Temple special is that we not only train good clinicians but we, perhaps more importantly, train great citizens. Never forget that idealist, ready to change the world, who wrote your medical school personal statement. Those principles brought you to medicine and brought you to Temple. Your experience over the past 4 years here has undoubtedly been touched by many exceptional teachers, the community members of North Philadelphia, who hopefully have left an indelible mark on your heart. Never forget them. Never stop fighting for them. With a changing healthcare landscape, we face many challenges as physicians but you are powerful beyond measure to change the world, even if just for one individual. Inspire. Create. Lead.5. What are some important lessons youVe learned during your career in medicine? While seasons come and go, first line therapies, treatment guidelines, and the science of medicine changes with advancing knowledge, the art of practice remains constant. I am continually reminded of Francis Peabody’s notion that the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient. Patients will be your greatest teachers and many of these patients will enter your lives, stamp your hearts, and you will, in a way completely appropriate and proper, love them. Health is something very personal to individuals and therefore advancing health as opposed to health care must involve relationships and personal connections. Allow yourself to connect and do not fight it. This is what it means to be a physician. 6. What are some of your hobbies? Aside from waiting for additional Philadelphia sports championships and celebratory parades, I have always been interested in politics and history. I’m a far cry from a foodie but enjoy trying new restaurants, particularly hole-in-the-wall places with the best food. Love drawing, live music, and my family will tell you watching the same movies over and over again. 7. What is a challenge you've encountered so far in your career? While there are many to mention, I’ve had several transition points in my career to date that either led to changes in practice or changes in location. These decisions did not come without significant discernment and consternation. Having a path or a course for yourself and your career is a positive thing but regardless of how planned it might be, when faced with a difficult decision, the best we can do is make the decision as wisely as possible and then forget about it. Absolute certainty never arrives. Taking risks is important and can lead you in a new direction and on a new path that will lead you on journey that you never could have imagined. 8.

Rosenfeld MD, MEd, FACS Class of 2019: I want to extend my warmest congratulations to the Class of 2019 of the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at 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 a 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. Sincerely, Joel C.

Some of the days were long, but the years were fast- it seems like yesterday I was talking with you at Second Look Day over ice cream at The Cup. Thank you for your enthusiasm and energy in bringing to life exciting and innovative community service events, student support wellness initiatives, and projects that (I feel) were all of the above (Brain Games!) You have had a tremendous positive impact on our community, both inside and outside of Temple’s and St. Luke’s walls. I will miss you all. but I can’t wait to see what the Class of 2019 does next!

Temple University 79Qjj Lewis Katz School of Medicine►t I Senior Lewis Katz School of Medicine UTemple University 83DEAN Dear Class of 2019: As a physician graduate of the Lewis Katz School of Medicine, you possess the curiosity, motivation, and professionalism to face with confidence the complex medical and scientific worlds that lie ahead. Change will shape your career. It will be affected by new healthcare delivery and financing models. It will be influenced by scientific findings. It will be subject to any number of circumstances that affect not just your patients, but your own health and your family’s. Far and away, the factor that will determine your success will be your ability to leverage change to your patients’ best advantage. Whatever may come, you must train yourself to view everything through this lens. The best path won’t always be immediately clear, nor necessarily ideal, but if you make finding it your consistent aim, you will enjoy tremendous satisfaction in your career, your patients will appreciate you, and you will be proud of yourself. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. You won’t regret it. May you enter this next phase of your lives and careers with this in mind - and with dedication, passion, and fond memories of your time at Temple. You are now part of the extended Temple Med family, a family in which you may take great pride - and a family that takes great pride in you. Always remember: Physicians who are educated at Temple have the skill, knowledge, compassion, and creativity to navigate every terrain. Congratulations and best wishes. Larry R. Kaiser, MD, FACS The Lewis Katz Dean at the School of Medicine Senior Executive Vice President for Health Affairs, Temple University President and CEO, Temple University Health System Professor, Thoracic Medicine and Surgery 84 Lewis Katz School of MedicineCLASS PRESIDENT Dear Class of 2019, Congratulations on the accomplishment of graduating medical school! Like other graduates of Temple University, during our four years at Lewis Katz School of Medicine (LKSOM) we have built a strong foundation for our careers. We have had the privilege to work in North Philadelphia. Since orientation, we have served and learned from members of the community that live around Temple. Through these interactions with the community, coupled with the guidance and mentorship of our professors, we have acquired the skills necessary to diagnose and advocate for our future patients. As a class, we have also had experiences that will always make the Class of 2019 unique. A great deal of change occurred in our time at Temple. We saw the institution’s name change to honor Lewis Katz during our first year, and we are the first class to have spent all four years of our education in the newly named institution. We are also the first class to have small group learning in workshops BRENT S. HALSEY, MD serve as a significant part of our education. Finally, we took part in the LCME reaccreditation process seeing the school receive full re-accreditation. Often, change can serve as a challenge to students, but our class always responded with poise and flexibility. For those of you who do not know, other medical students refer to the Class of 2019 as the “chill” class. To me, this characterization is relatively close to our actual personality. It speaks not only to our ability to respond in a calm and collected way to challenges and changes; but also points out our dedication to supporting one another and the general good-natured attitude that we all share as a group. As we continue to meet new challenges throughout our careers, I believe being members of the Class of 2019 will allow us to continue to adapt effectively to them. On top of our strong foundation, I want to provide some advice to help you when you reach a bump in the road. Remember the feeling of excitement you experienced during our first weeks of medical school. I still remember having a conversation with a friend from the Temple ACMS postbacc saying, “Can you believe we’re actually in medical school?” We were reminiscing about how hard we had worked, the challenges we had already faced to get to that point, but mainly looking forward to how excited we were to start medical school. I experienced this excitement during medical school many times: the first time I helped deliver a baby, or when I first stood terrified yet exhilarated in the operating room, or any time patients trusted me with intimate details of their life stories. I am sure you all have your own experiences like these and that we are all bound to have this feeling again on days like Match Day. graduation, and throughout our careers. Remember the excitement of these experiences and channel it to help you overcome the new challenges you face like you have already done so effectively. I look forward to continuing to share the strong bond we have as classmates as we happen upon each other in our professional and personal lives. Thank you for the past four amazing years, and good luck on all your future careers. I can’t wait to see all that the Class of 2019 accomplishes.

A family practitioner, an internist, a surgeon, and a pathologist are duck hunting. The family practitioner sees a duck, aims his gun, and says "That looks like a duck, it quacks like a duck, it must be a duck." The internist looks and says "Yeah, that could be a duck. Rule out penguin, rule out flamingo, rule out ostrich... duck versus goose seems most likely." The surgeon, unloads his gun, spraying bullets all over the field. He reloads, and keeps shooting until he’s empty. He then turns to the pathologist and says "Go see if that was a duck." Lewis Katz School of Medicine 126JOHN A. HAUBER, M.D. Pittsburgh, PA B.S.

I wanted to be a Tyrannosaurus Rex more than anything in the world. I made my arms short and I roamed the backyard and I chased the neighborhood cats, and I growled and I roared. Everybody knew me and was afraid of me. And then one day, my dad said, "Bobby, you're 17. It's time to throw childish things aside." But, you know, I thought to myself, I’ll go to medical school. I'll practice for a little while, and then I'll come back to it. But I forgot how to do it.
