The Medical College of Wisconsin’s annual commencement exercises were held May 17 at the Milwaukee Theatre. During the ceremony, the Medical College and its Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences awarded 194 MD, 40 PhD, 23 MS, eight MA, and 16 Master of Public Health degrees.

For medical school seniors, the festivities began a day earlier with a special Hooding Ceremony, signifying the students’ transition to doctor. PhD candidates were hooded during commencement, per tradition.

The 2013 commencement address was given by Jeffrey T. Laitman, PhD, Distinguished Professor of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. He, as well as Thomas Brophy, MSW, retired Director of Community Relations for MCW, and Robert A. Wild, SJ, retired President of Marquette University, received honorary doctorate degrees from the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Good morning,

Our Son graduated from MCW in 2013. I was wondering if it would be possible to receive a copy of Jeffrey T. Laitman PhD address he gave at the 2013 ceremony?

Thank you
