Chris' Medical Residency Graduation

This day seemed so far off.  Chris will have completed 21 years of school and training by the end of this month, all leading up to the beginning of his career as a urologist.  Aside from being wickedly good looking, he is one smart guy.  His hard work, perseverance and diligence are so admired.  It's a long road to become a doctor and I am so proud of his great accomplishment.

This weekend the Urology department held their graduation ceremony.  Each year the graduating chief residents are honored with a dinner at the Foundation House and a personal roast given by the staff of their choosing.  The dinner is my favorite department gathering every year.  You find out all kinds of hilarious and intriguing stuff about the residents during their roast.

Chris' Chiefs came back for graduation.  It was so good to catch up with Maryn and Erin after missing their faces for four years.  I think it is pretty awesome that all the Chiefs flew back to be there for this event.  We're already excited for the reunion in four years when Chris comes to honor his junior residents at their graduation.

Chris' classmates have become like family to us.  We're so excited to see all that they accomplish in life and professionally post training.

Dr. Gettman gave Chris' roast.  The roast centered around Chris' many physical ailments and accidents.  The Skip It was a funny reminder of a painful time in Chris' college career.  Ask him about it some time.  It's a doozy of a story.

Many congratulations, Chief class.
