Midwestern celebrates master’s and doctoral graduates

Late last month, Midwestern University celebrated the graduation of master’s and doctoral degree recipients who are beginning their professional careers in health care.

Over 1,600 graduates crossed the stage to receive their graduate hoods in ceremonies held on University campuses in Glendale and Downers Grove, Illinois, representing 11 health care specialty degrees across 10 Midwestern colleges.

During the ceremonies, Dr. Kathleen H. Goeppinger, president and chief executive officer of Midwestern University, acknowledged the many achievements of the graduates during their years of rigorous study and clinical experiences. She also encouraged them to remember the values they learned as Midwestern University students.

“If you could be one thing, be kind,” Goeppinger told the graduates. “Be kind to your patients, your family, your colleagues, and most importantly, to yourself.”
