Saturday was graduation. It was pretty awesome. It all actually began on Friday with our Senior Banquet. We got all dressed up and had a fancy dinner at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. That place is sweet. Then we had a keynote speaker (one of our biochem professors), teachers got some awards, then students got some awards. Here are some photos from that event (the first two are courtesy of Jon Huskins):

Then Saturday was the actual ceremony. We “processed” in, had some speaking, then did the official stuff. As I went up, my new name, Dr. Meghan Leanne Miller, was read then I was hooded by Dr. Matthews, then I shook the Dean’s hand as he handed me my empty tube that one day soon will house my diploma. (I still have a May rotation and have to write a little paper, but then I get it.) O, I forgot the part where we all had to get hand sanitizer squirted on our hand so we wouldn’t spread Swine Flu, I mean H1N1 in doctor-speak. They had sent us an email that we weren’t going to be allowed to shake hands with the Dean and that was going to stink, so I guess they thought this would be safe enough. Haven’t heard of any outbreaks yet!

in reference to the previous post, here is the “distinguished” look of a newly adorned M.D.
There are many more photos of me & so-and-so on Facebook here and here to check out. Thank you everyone for all your support, encouragement, and prayers. They were definitely needed! Now I am on to St. Vincent for a residency in Family Medicine. I start orientation June 19 and become official on July 1. Look out sick people, here I come!
