“Thank you to our faculty, administration, and staff for creating this wonderful institution that has been our home in so many ways. From that first day at Summer Institute, your enthusiasm about the mission of this school never wavered, and in turn, a fire was ignited under all of us to take full advantage of the opportunities on this campus. We are all extremely grateful to each of you for creating an environment where we were able to grow to our full potential. I truly believe we learned lessons on this campus that will positively impact our practice of medicine for years to come."
