Just wanted to take the opportunity to congratulate those of you who have been accepted to PCOM. You will be attending an outstanding medical school. Many have gone before you and are very successful in all areas of medical practice. Work hard and you will be too. You will enjoy your time spent there and will have experiences that will last a lifetime. This is a special time in your life, you have good reason to rejoice. Even more than this, I congratulate you on taking the first step toward becoming a physician. You will have the opportunity to both preserve and improve the lives of many people. There are few greater, more rewarding, more noble callings. Furthermore, I extend my congratulations to all of you who have been accepted to medical school. Best wishes in your future endeavors.
