I can only start by saying wow look at this I am so proud of each and every
single one of you are here with us today and I want to have a warm welcome to all
of our family and friends who are here with us in the audience – Tom helluva CH
who’s here as our guest note our keynote speaker in our other distinguished
guests and most importantly our honored guests the class of 2019 I’m incredibly
proud to be here on this historic occasion as we graduate our largest
class ever including our first 44 students from the Heritage College
Cleveland campus as I look out at our class of 2019 I’m reminded that each and
every one of you has travelled a unique path to graduation day like Matthew
friend from Athens Matthew where are you raise your hand hey Matthew Matthew was
born here in Appalachia and he related to us on his application that his major
motivator was looking at the health disparities of the region having grown
up here and wanting to have an impact on the health of the people of Appalachia
I’m also thinking about Tina Drake Williams Tina where are you
so Tina told me that she has 30 people with her here in the audience today so
welcome family and friends a part of the reason we do this here is to limit
nobody we really think it’s a great celebration for everybody
Tina is a non-traditional first gen student
she’s married to a a Navy man raised three children while in school wow that
just it blows me away on Tina we’ll be going back on toys where I’m from the
Northeast after graduation then I’m thinking about Jai Simha Jai where are
you hey J I’m sorry I pronounced your name with an R on the end of it but I’m
from Boston so that happens and he’s from Mount Union and he came to us as an
assistant professor of engineering and was involved in artificial kidney
research and design he’s married his children is also a first generation
student 228 paths have led you to this moment today today those paths converge
as you become doctors of osteopathic medicine as such you will forge the path
forward it is you the class of 2019 who will lead the transformation of patient
care it is you the class of 2019 who will carry forward the rich traditions
of our College and of our profession today we celebrate you your grit your
determination your perseverance and your amazing achievements I can’t even begin
to tell you how proud I am of each and every one of you we also celebrate the
many individuals who enabled your success in honor of the gifts of time
knowledge wisdom that so many physicians generously gave all of us as we pursued
our medical degrees I ask all physicians in the audience in on the platform to
please stand and be recognized graduates I hope you’ll also join me in

Athens and Dublin campuses as well as members of the class of 2019 you too are
pioneers by sharing your ideas for making the Heritage College experience

period of monumental growth the accomplishments of the Heritage College
class of 2019 are truly impressive I know each of you will continue to do
great things in the service to our communities and throughout Ohio and
beyond now yesterday we celebrated some of the outstanding achievements of our
graduates during an awards ceremony that we held at the Templeton Blackburn
auditorium you’ll find the full list of all the award winners on pages 20 and 21
of your program now I’d like to ask all the individuals who won awards to please

achievements and dedication to the profession now I’d like to introduce our next
speaker it’s a great honor to introduce osteopathic medical student for another
few minutes Nicole Zell Nicole’s presidents of the
class of 2019 at the Heritage College Cleveland and she has been a dedicated
class advocate and an excellent scholar and a student clinician she’s a 2007
graduate of Keuka College with a bachelor’s of science and business
management and marketing she then received a Masters in Business
Administration in 2008 from Rochester Institute of Technology and then then
needed to go on and get her Juris Doctorate from the University of
Baltimore in 2011 after graduation she’ll be entering the eastern
Connecticut family medicine residency program and we couldn’t be more proud
please welcome osteopathic medical student doctors a student doctor self thank you doctor Christine what a quick
four years it has been congratulations to all my classmates here I would like
to recognize my fellow class presidents Dana Maxwell who is the Athens class
president and Matt Taylor the Dublin class president thank you for everything
you guys have done to serve our classmates thank you for your support
everybody here family friends faculty staff our distinguished guests here
today it has taken effort from everyone here
to help today’s graduates reach this point as you have heard we are three
campuses but one college although we might may not know each other by name
due to videoconferencing lectures some of us have had more camera time than
drama majors everyone knows Brian and Darcy from Cleveland Liz and Ashley from
Dublin and Joe in Athens and I know Dana joked about this yesterday too but I
can’t get enough of it during these quick four years we have had the
opportunity to share lectures OMM labs the beloved sni sessions and clinical
skills although we have been on three separate campuses we are still
classmates and have bonded helping each other navigate through this process as
we move forward to this next chapter we are privileged to have such a large
network of öyou h comm friends nothing worth achieving and life comes easy
during these quick four years it would have been easy to quit and start our
plan B in Athens the class officers definitely could have started a cold
brew cafe some Cleveland students could have been professional gamers or yoga
instructors and Dublin students well I hear they like to feed the fish in the
blue pond I’m proud to stand here with all of you who pushed through and
decided this massive student that was worth it but in all seriousness I am
proud of each and every one of you here today I am proud of you for deciding to
wake up and take another step forward on this path to becoming a physician as we
continue forward in our train it is important we accept that we are in
a period of growth and change over these next few years of residency move forward
asking questions embrace your failures and continue to
grow your knowledge and skills so you can provide the best care possible for
your patients continue to grow so that each day and each year you are smarter
and better than the last continue to step outside your comfort zone because
it is in this space that we will be challenged and grow further as
physicians we need to be open to change as well don’t be afraid to make your
path different than those before you don’t be afraid to be a voice for your
patient because it’s all about the patient I challenge each of you to set
goals for residency set an intention each day of what it is you want to
accomplish set your intention each time you step through that door to speak with
a patient set your intention to be present and to be kind if we are
intentional about our actions and thoughts we’ll succeed each day by
utilizing this intention to move us one step closer to our goal although it is
important to look forward to our goals and milestones it’s becoming a physician
it is vital that we embrace the process and enjoy today I’m sure all of you can
relate to this thinking if I could just get into medical school life would be
great if I could just graduate medical school my days would be more enjoyable
when I am finished as an attending and I’m attending I’ll have so much more
time stop waiting for these some days and instead embrace today
congratulations for today but congratulations for July first when you
start that first day of residency and congratulations for July 2nd when you
wake up to do it all over again congratulations on a quick four years well I have to say thank you soon to be
dr. zell it is now my pleasure to introduce our commencement speaker dr.
Tom helluva CH as CEO and president of the Cleveland Clinic doctor Mahalo which
leads a vast medical system that includes facilities in North America Abu
Dhabi and London we feel so fortunate to be partnering with the Cleveland Clinic
which is world-renowned and which just happens to be the number two Hospital in
the nation I think that deserves a round of applause dr. Mahalo bish previously
served as the CEO of the Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi in chief of staff and
chair of the heart and vascular medicine Institute there as a renowned
cardiovascular surgeon he has performed almost 3,000 operations and has
published more than 130 scientific papers in addition to his medical
expertise and his passion for care delivery and education he also shares a
passion that I have which is downhill skiing so Tom I hope we get a chance to
do that sometime together I also want to thank him for being here today with us
he earned his medical degree from the University of Zagreb Croatia and trained
at the University of Zurich Switzerland at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in
Boston Children’s Hospital since assuming his current role dr. Mahalo
which has worked to elevate the Cleveland Clinic’s partnership with the
Heritage College in an effort to further impact healthcare delivery and our
emphasis on primary care please give a warm welcome to dr. Tom the halibuts think you can mr. president and the
class of 2019 so how are you doing feeling okay just relax it’s over you
could you’re good you’re in a good place right now
so I congratulate you on entering the the noblest profession of mankind there
is nothing more important than a work that you’ll be doing and there is
nothing more important and to realize that you are not entering into a
professional job you’re actually entering into calling we do not do
medicine will live medicine and you will live it by changing the lives of others
by alleviating their suffering and by offering them hope you will be in that
unique position that you’ll be able to come back home to your loved ones each
and every day and understand that you did something that matters every single
day of your work there are no professions that I know of that can say
the same I believe that you realize the importance of the job ahead of you then
you look forward to it I’m actually very much convinced that you are and at the
same time you’re getting into this absolutely wonderful calling of hours
and one of the most exciting time in a in a history I know that everybody says
so you know when it stands in this podium but I certainly believe so
because the development of medicine is ongoing in an unprecedented pace just to
give you a little bit of an orientation health care is the largest industry in
the United States we touch every life in this country in every country in every
community which we practice and we also do employ
more people than any other industry in the United States which is absolutely
stunning you also happen to be graduates are one of the most forward-thinking
educational organizations that I have ever seen
and you also happen to have enjoy a real blessing by being here in a state of
Ohio in a state that houses very many truly exceptional providers in health
care organizations that will help further shape your careers you should be
very very excited about about your path forward now I would like to give you a
few practical hints about what’s ahead of you because you know what’s behind
you but I just think a little bit about a heads what’s ahead of you and I would
like to dispel a few myths ready okay so here’s the first one the first myth is
that if I just get through the medical school everything else is going to be
much easier okay not true when you will if you have a few more gray hairs and
well you’ll be sitting standing on the podiums like this and speaking in many
many years to your younger colleagues you will tell them what I’m just about
to tell you this is a very exciting part of your career but it’s certainly not
the easiest one and every subsequent step in your career is going to be more
and more complex and there is nothing wrong about it it should be because you
are not here to enter a simple profession you’re not here to enter a
calling that is easy to do you have just signed up for something that again
citing it that it’s worth doing and everything that is worth doing is not
easy so it is going to be challenging it should be challenging and if it is
challenging you know that you are in the right path so that’s your first myth
the the myth continues you know that people say well if I just get through
residency and you get to the point when you become an attending physician things
are gonna get easier and they and they will not they will always continue to be
tough and every person here to your left and to your right on to my left and to
my right will tell you the same and it should be tough and it should be
challenges that will tell you one thing the moment you just start becoming
comfortable absolutely anything that you do you have to move on and start
venturing into the zones of what I like to call tolerable discomfort comfort
means stagnation conference the lack of development you will never ever achieve
your goal you were always going to be on your journey and a journey has to be the
one of an ongoing improvement and you may ask so why why should I do so the
reason why we all do do so is because that’s where our patients expect from us
the only reason the only legacy that you will ever leave any one of us here is
not going to be in your degrees and diplomas on the wall nobody now this may
be hard but nobody will ever read your CV they want once you start your
families and some of them gets out your families I can assure you one your kids
will never read your CV how these guys will get a lot of laughs
from up top because they know that because you have not read their CVS have
you and there is a reason to it you shouldn’t but what you will not be known
for you will be known for an impact that you create any areas of science in
education and you will now be known for an impact they create in pay your
patients lives but also in the lives of others so in essence the only legacy
that ever matters in a noble profession that you’re entering
are the lives that you affect the lives that you change the lives that you save
and improve and you can do it in a number of different ways you can do it
by caring for your patients but you can also do it by educating those who will
care for future patients and very many people over here do and you can also do
that through research by creating the better ways to provide care for numerous
patients all over the world and the way that we provide care is really
transformational one thing about our profession is that you think about a
healthcare of today most people think that being a physician means a lone
ranger who is out there fighting the disease and on behalf of their patients
and well do we all strive to do so the fact is that the path to success leads
through teamwork in your education in this particular institution has taught
you a lot about the value of your teamwork you know today’s healthcare
evolves around the four corners that provide a foundation for the healthcare
of today and in the future one is patient care the others like taking care
of people who you’re working with the third one is to take care of the
organizations in which you work and their resources and the fourth one is to
take care of your community and I know that you are firmly dedicated to the
communities that you come from and the communities that you will serve tomorrow
and I don’t think there is anything much more inspirational and inspiring that to
work ahead of you and we’re here to help you
you know Cleveland Clinic currently employs 66,000 caregivers all over the
world we’re about to reach 70,000 by the end of the year but when we take a look
at a relatively recent history in 1990 1990s Cleveland Clinic had only ten
primary care physicians can you imagine that only 10 primary care physician
today we employ more than four primary care physicians and we continue
and we continue to grow and you are in a perfect position to really take a
control over the new ways of care delivery that will evolve you and your
teams in a direct care of your patients by leveraging your knowledge of today
leveraging your knowledge of tomorrow through your residences and also
leveraging these phenomenal health care organizations that we have in our in our
state and I do believe that collaboration is a new miracle drug for
the future of the healthcare delivery in the United States and throughout the
world I had a good fortune of practicing in many different nations in many
different corners of the world but I will tell you one thing is and that is
that health care is wonderful in many dimensions and one of them is it’s
absolutely universal what you’ve learned today is applicable in every community
throughout the world there is no patient no country no community that will ever
willingly walk away from exceptional healthcare so this is a gift that is
given to us and this is the opportunity this way that we have that we have to
grasp and lastly you know you’re entering the period of your life that is
going to become busier and busier and busier as I said before and there is
going to be a lot of lots of opportunities to get so involved and
immersed in your work that you may start to miss an opportunity to thank those
who who have helped you along the way it just happens happens every day so if I
were to give you one thing one I get one best practice if you will that I feel
very passionate about is please make sure that in your schedule for every
single day you always get in a rhythm of making sure
every day you call someone in your life who matters even when you don’t need
them I call my mom every day people here in the audience will appreciate it call
him just to tell him hey how are you I hope you’re doing well three minutes of
your time the best reward the people around you and your lives will ever will
ever have so I have to tell you one last thing you know I spent six and a half
years in United Arab Emirates in Abu Dhabi 7,000 miles away from Athens Ohio
and I learned more about Athens Ohio in Abu Dhabi then I had in all seven years
that I spent in Cleveland Ohio and the reason for it is because they have a
really really close friend of mine who’s your graduate who lives and works in
United Arab Emirates and speaking about myths I spoke about the myths that I
would like to say to say clarify here but he told me a myth and I need to test
it now I’m a bobcat for a day that’s what they
told me I’m an honorary bobcat for a day so what he told me is he said you know
you can travel throughout the world and you can always always figure out who’s
an Ohio University alum they always they always answer a secret call okay so I’ll
try a secret call and let me just hear if he is right or wrong and a secret
call goes like this oh you this was not clear enough oh you
oK you’ve graduated thank you very much god bless alright that was awesome let’s give dr.
mihaylo bitch another round of applause great great job so many important words
of wisdom there thank you so much and of course we are all very proud of Ohio

been exciting and inspiring to watch but the best is yet to come over the next
three or more years our graduates will further develop their knowledge through
postgraduate training at a time when our nation recognizes the need to recruit
and retain truly outstanding osteopathic family physicians we are proud that 47%
of the class will pursue our primary care specialty I think that deserves a
round of applause overall our graduates will train in many
medical specialties including family medicine internal medicine pediatrics
emergency medicine orthopedic surgery anesthesiology physical medicine and
Rehab psychiatry dermatology obstetrics and gynecology and many others over 70%
of this class will stay in Ohio for Graduate Medical Education
