4Dear Class of 2014,
Thank you for allowing us to capture your personal journeys and achievements over the past four years. Through these pictures, we hope you are able to look back at your time at TUSPM with fond memories and smile.
LETTER FRl THE EDITORS
We wish everyone the best of luck and fortune in your future endeavors.
Carry on for Podiatry.
Your Editors-ln-Chief, Ashley, Romy, and ShyamDear Class of 2014:
Congratulations and felicitations! It is with great joy and excitement that 1 regard the wonderful milestone that you have achieved at this point in your education.
I am incredibly humbled by your choice of me as your Clinician of the Year. This distinction is all the more meaningful because yours is the first class with which I had the pleasure of w orking throughout the entirety of your third and fourth years. I have witnessed so much grow th in each of you over these past two years, and I look forw ard to your further accomplishments, not only in your personal lives, but in our profession as a w hole. Too. I must recognize the other members of the faculty and staff at Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine as they have been on integral part of your education, and should share in this accolade with me.
Each of you has a unique gift. These talents may not be the same for everyone, but each makes you who you are and helps to define you as a physician. No matter how you choose to proceed with your future in medicine, 1 ask that you do so with honesty, integrity, and utmost compassion for your patients and the profession. It isn’t what we do today or tomorrow that is noticed, but what we have done that ultimately will tell the story of our greatness in the end.
I conclude my remarks here with some advice. To use an old adage, never forget that there is more than one way to skin a cat. One person’s manner is not necessarily the sole method. You will work with a lot of people throughout your life. Each will provide learning for you, whether it be good or bad. Furthermore, you don't have to implement everything you learn. Take "the good, the bad, and the ugly," filter them through logic and sound judgment, and then-and only then-- implement them in your practice. Remember: at the end of the day. you are only as great as the amount of time and effort you have put into being the best you can possibly be. As a physician and a person, you must never stop learning or educating, and you must always go the extra mile to be the best.
Doctors of the Class of 2014, it is with the greatest pleasure that 1 welcome you to this great profession. It is truly an honor to now call you my colleagues. Although no longer will you be here physically at TUSPM. please know that my door, email and phone arc always available to you whenever you need me. Best of luck in all of your endeavors. Again, my congratulations!

More than that, however, I want to tell you that you ms the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine.
While it is true that we have clinics, laboratories, classrooms and dormitories, a school without the vibrant energy of the student is a building whose purpose has disappeared.

During the post four years, this was your school, but in a larger sense, you became the

You now enter a career in which your patient and his or her condition will demand your expertise. As you enter practice and develop roots in the community that you choose, I ask tliat you never forget the roots that you leave here at TUSPM.
You have earned the right to wear the degree that wc have bestowed upon you with pride. I challenge you to use that degree to the benefit of both your practice and your alma matter as those who have gone before you have done. I want you to become active with your alumni association and maintain connection with your classmates. Your alumni peers have generously endowed scholarships for the benefit of TUSPM students and have given of their financial resources for the continual upgrading of TUSPM. 1 want you to come back to Philadelphia to visit us periodically and I want you to visit us on the web consistently.

To The Class of 2014
I would like to personally congratulate each of you and your families for your successful completion of the academic requirements at the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine. Your graduation is a proud moment for both you and your families. It is also a proud moment for us as wc have seen you develop your clinical knowledge and skills over the last few years. Many of you have had to overcome both personal and professional challenges to get to this point. I congratulate you and wish you personal and professional success in the future.
When you came to TUSPM you joined a profession that is still evolving and maturing. Even over the course of my own professional lifetime there have been dramatic changes. In order to continue to advance the profession, each and every one of you must be personally involved with helping it grow. Certainly the most important way to do that is to make each and every patient encounter a successful one where you deliver the best possible care in a caring and compassionate way. In addition there arc other ways that you can contribute to the profession: research, education, and political leadership are just a few of the different ways that together wc can advance the profession. For me, this has been a wonderful place to receive my own education and a wonderful place to have the opportunity to teach you.
This profession provides outstanding opportunities for each and every one of you that you can seize with hard work and dedication. Again, congratulations on this success and good luck in your future endeavors. I hope that you will look back upon the knowledge you gained at TUSPM as the foundation upon which your career was built.

Dear Members of the Class of 2014,
One of my classmates opined that Charles Dickens had described the experience of podiatry training in the opening line of A Tale of Two Cities: “It was the best of limes, it was the worst of times ..." and so it truly seemed. The inherent contradiction between best and worst depends on one’s perspective at the moment of experience and perspective develops over time Four years at the former PCPM seemed to drag on forever and became a struggle to pass the next exam, to finish the next clinic encounter, to surmount whatever the next hurdle would be. Sound familiar? Then, at the end of my last afternoon clinic session of my last assigned rotation I looked at the clock on the K-room wall and had a peculiar flashback: In an instant time telescoped back to when I first arrived for orientation and I thought had I blinked I would have missed the whole experience. Both perceptions were of the same reality but experienced from different perspectives. One of my psychology professors dryly described reality as nothing more than the set of delusions one believes at the moment, but then again he was a devotee of Paul Watzlawick’s How Real Is Real (as am I). I don't know if I believe the experience of reality is quite that fluid, but 1 have come to appreciate that perspective colors the interpretation of mere facts and. apart from the purely physical (and sometimes even then), contributes greatly to what is perceived as real regardless of whether it is or isn’t.
My hope and wish for each of you is that you will develop and maintain a healthy perspective on life. Life is not podiatric medicine and surgery, though, for you, it will be a part of life in which you strive to excel. For some among you. your professional life will be an end in and of itself; for the more fortunate and wiser among you. it will be merely a means to an end. You will never regret not giving a talk or performing a surgery, but missing a parent’s last birthday will haunt you forever. At the end of your days you will be unable to count the hours spent in the office and equally unable to forget the times you were too busy to be with a loved one or keep a promise to a friend. Time may heal all wounds but as Groucho Marx observed, time also wounds all heels. Perspective develops with time and sometimes pain. I wish each of you the good fortune to develop a balanced perspective on life painlessly while you are still young enough to live it without regret.
Congratulations on your graduation and Godspeed in your journeys.

Congrats to the Class of 2014! Thank you to my mom. dad and Arvind!! Could not have done it without your constant love and support. A true lifelong goal becomes a reality today and couldn't be happier. I'm so grateful to haw you as my family. Thank you for always being rhere! Love you all!!
Not of school, or learning, or working with people. I'm tired because the last four years have consisted of daily reminders of how much more I need to grow before becoming the doctor, husband, brother, son. friend I necd want to be.
Luckily, I'm surrounded by people much smarter than myself who understand and support me, and know what is required to get where I want to go. None more than my family and especially my wife, Kayla, an unwavering support of love and kindness, who has taught me that I can learn so much more by listening rather than by speaking. I am grateful for the professors, and doctors that have raught me over the last four years. It was difficult learning all they wanted us to know, but their passion was contagious, and I am grateful to them for giving me the dedication I have today for podiatric medicine.
All that I have left to learn is what makes the future so exciting.20

Gopi: There aren't enough words to thank you for your love and supporr. You've done so much for me from helping me move in 1st year, to throwing me a surprise birthday party (during finals!), quizzing me, listening to my panic stricken phone calls, taking me out every weekend to catch a break from frozen food and most importantly always believing in me and encouraging me to work really hard and be the best that I can be.
Mom Dad: Thank you for always encouraging me to obtain an education. You've offered me so many rewards and incentives to do well in school, including a brand new car (which I never received by the way)! Well. I’ve finally done it! 1 will most definitely pass on your famous quote "Work hard now and enjoy tlie rest of your life, or enjoy yourself right now and work hard for the rest of your life".

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us. we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way. - Charles Dickens
This pretty much summarizes our 4 years at TUSPM.
Thank you to my family for all their love and support during these past 4 years.
Thank you to my friends who have been there for me all the way. Thank you to my professors for their patience and guidance in setting me on the path to being a dedicated and caring clinician.

Thanks to my friends for helping me make it through school. I couldn't have made it alone. We always take more than we can give and for that. I am forever in debt to you. And thank you to Ashley, you are my guiding light and my driving force.
53The past four years have gone by faster than any other four years in my lifetime. I came to Philadelphia with the sole goal of becoming a Physician. Yet, as this time comes to an end I find it to be definitely a bitter sweet process. 1 have met some friends that I hope to have part of my inner circle for many years to come.
First I would like to thank God. To him all praise is due.
Mom and Dad. without your encouragement and constant expectation for me to live up to my potential I would never have come this far. I owe you this and any future success. Omid, thanks for the calls in the med library to just check up, I needed it. Wish you and your new bride, Kiran. a beautiful life together.
Ammar, Hashi and Adnan, brothas from anotha mot ha. Our time at apartment 6E F will never be forgotten. The late night treks into the city and the random ransacking of each others rooms are some of the best times I’ve had in my life. They say your personality at any given time is a mixture of the few people you associate with most. I'm a better person because of this association.
Shout out to the rest of the Brown Crew, The Fit (Hub, The A Team and my T Town boys. To the class of 2014. I am proud to call you all colleagues and equals. All the best going forward.
54My dearest Mother.
Since my first day on this earth you have always put my needs ahead of your own. Endless sacrifices that were undoubtedly taxing to you, both physically and mentally. Through ic all, your strength and tenacity never wavered. You truly are fearless. Your actions never go unnoticed. Know that I appreciate everything you do. As I have grown into an adult, our relationship has evolved, and I consider you one of my best friends. I look to you for advice, motivation, and as the example that I have modeled myself after. 1 thank God for blessing me with such a charismatic, fun, loving, intelligent, and beautiful mother. You have given me the tools needed to be successful in all aspects of life. You are my hero.
I love you.
