There are 5 comments on BU School of Medicine Will Graduate Students Early to Help Hospitals

  1. There is so much hope in the world. We are now beginning to pay attention. Thanking in advance to all those who chose to be health care providers in the new world, where profit and letters after the name may no longer be relevant. I have two children currently at BU who will be completing their doctoral degrees in the medical field this year. I thank BU for preparing them for whatever it is and whatever it will be.

  2. This is a great think both BU and the graduates are participating in. There’s no greater reason to become a physician than helping others and this is the perfect opportunity for them to jump right in and do so, not only that but it serves as once-in-a-lifetime work experience for them going forward in their careers. I’m glad I live in a state like MA where there’s schools that can do this as well. Huge thank you to all of the kids who are going out there on the front lines and helping MA and other states get through this crisis.

  3. Yes, this is a great opportunity for them. My sister did her medical internship through Global Electives Port LTD and now she is also helping others in this current scenario. Truly, we are now realizing the value of doctors than before. Kudos to BU medical students and hope everything goes well.

  4. To the BU medical students who elected to graduate early to serve those in need; I admire your, selflessness, true grit and character at this time in your young lives. These next several months will probably be the most challenging in your career. My thoughts and prayers go with you to remain safe and well.

  5. You are all so smart and capable and brave. Believe in your skill, knowledge, and ability to adapt to new situations. You are well-prepared. You can do this. Believe in your mentors, who believe in YOU. Lean on each other and on your families and friends. To quote Professor Rob Lowe: “when you’re having a hard day, take that rounding list out of your back pocket. I challenge you to find one person on that list whom you’d trade places with.”

    Take your time, ask for help, rest at home. Breathe, meditate, focus on sleep.

    Love BU, and all that YOU do!!!!! You got this!!
