I would like to invite you to attend the last two Medicine Grand Rounds of this academic year. Tomorrow, Mark Derleth, chief medical resident, will present "Hepatic Encephalopathy: History and Pathogenesis" at 8 a.m. in T625 Health Sciences. His talk will be followed by presentation of the Department of Medicine's Robert S. Evans Awards. These are presented each year to the second-year medicine resident and the graduating medical student who most clearly reflect the qualities of warmth, understanding, and concern for human welfare exemplified by Dr. Robert Evans, who was chief of medicine at Seattle VA Medical Center for many years. Our final Grand Rounds for the year will be the presentation on June 10 by David Min, chief medical resident, "The Current State of Cell-Based Cardiac Regeneration Research."
The School of Medicine's 2010 Investiture of Doctoral Hoods and Physician's Oath Ceremony will be held Saturday, June 5, at 10 a.m. in the Bank of America Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion. It will be followed by a reception hosted by Dean Paul Ramsey. Steven R. McGee, professor of medicine at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System and a member of the Division of General Internal Medicine, has been selected to be the keynote speaker at this year's ceremony. This year's graduating students are the 61st class to receive the degree of Doctor of Medicine from the University of Washington. The ceremony and reception are open to everyone, and no tickets are required.
Saturday evening, June 5, the Housestaff Awards Dinner will be held at Bell Harbor International Conference Center, beginning at 6pm. Thank you to all who are attending and have helped support this important annual event.
I hope you will join me in attending these events and celebrating our excellent residents, faculty and graduating students. I thank you all for your outstanding work and for another very successful academic year.
