August 10, 2018 — Graduating students from the UF College of Medicine graduate program — which encompasses biomedical sciences, biomedical informatics, gerontology, medical physics, translational biotechnology, medical sciences and health outcomes and policy — were honored for their master’s and doctoral degrees with a luncheon held Friday in the Harrell Medical Education Building. Family members, faculty mentors and interim dean Adrian Tyndall, M.D., were on hand to congratulate the graduates.
Associate dean for graduate education Thomas Rowe, Ph.D., recognized each student and their mentor individually, outlining their research. Each faculty mentor spoke briefly about the qualities and accomplishments of their mentees.
“Today we’re celebrating and recognizing the achievements of our graduates, who will now use that training in their careers,” Rowe said. “It takes a lot of hard work and effort to get to this point.”
Said Tyndall: “Listening to these students’ stories and research expanded my understanding of what this college is accomplishing. It takes a special person to become a scientist. Hearing these stories impresses me and helps me discover all the wonderful things being done at the UF College of Medicine.”
