Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons (P & S)
On May 19, 2004, I graduated from Columbia's College of Physicians and Surgeons. Here is a picture of me during the morning ceremony held at the undergraduate campus (as you might have guessed, it was raining :))
Here I am with my family following the morning ceremony. From L to R: Me, Aunt Linda, Mom, and Dad
Here I am with my mom (left) and sister Kim (right) prior to the afternoon ceremony.
Here I am at the beginning of the afternoon ceremony held at Columbia University Medical Center, where our class officially received our diplomas and the title of Doctor of Medicine.
As per Columbia P&S tradition, past graduates are invited to present diplomas to their children. Here I am (P&S class of 2004) receiving my diploma from my mom (P&S class of 1973) and dad (P&S class of 1974)
Besides my parents, sister and Aunt Linda, my family friend Pearl Eccles and my high school guidance counselor, Grace Rivera were present at my graduation. Here I am with Mrs. Rivera after receiving my diploma.
Here is my diploma in the flesh (so to speak :)), conferring that I am now officially Shearwood McClelland III, M.D. Looks nice, doesn't it?
