It’s hard to believe that graduation season is underway. Over the weekend, I attended the ATSU-KCOM commencement to give the keynote address but also to see my nephew, David, and his fiancée, Krystin Engelhardt, earn their DO degrees. I’m very proud to say that they represent 20 and 21 in terms of the number of DOs in the Steinbaum-Levine family!
Class of 2012, as you get set to begin the next phase of your career, remember to "think osteopathically." Practice up to the education and training you’ve received from your osteopathic medical school. Use the knowledge and tools you now have to give your patients the care they deserve. Observe, listen and be compassionate. Your patients will be forever grateful, and you’ll be living up to the DO degree you worked so hard to obtain.
Congratulations, and I wish you the very best!
