She offers these words to future alumni: “In addition to learning to be an outstanding clinician and/or researcher, those who are most successful are extremely competent in the business and politics of medicine. Persistence, dedication and hard work are still the keys to success. Remember, there are no short cuts in life, so keep plugging along and you will be successfully rewarded in the end.”
