Einstein Celebrates 64th Commencement

Einstein Celebrates 64th Commencement

Einstein’s 64th commencement, held May 25 at Carnegie Hall in New York City, featured New York State Health Commissioner Mary T. Bassett, M.D., M.P.H., as the keynote speaker. 

The College of Medicine conferred 160 M.D. degrees and 21 Ph.D. degrees. In addition, 15 graduates of Einstein’s Medical Scientist Training Program received both M.D. and Ph.D. degrees.

Dr. Bassett urged the graduates to be aware of how social determinants can affect the health of their patients. “As healers,” she said, “it is our obligation to look beyond the walls of our hospitals, our laboratories, our clinics, and see what is making our patients sick. We may not, on our own, be able to bridge these racial disparities that brought these patients to us. But we sure can talk about it. We can determine that we will not be silent.”

Gordon F. Tomaselli, M.D., the Marilyn and Stanley M. Katz Dean at Einstein and executive vice president and chief academic officer at Montefiore, praised the graduates for their “unflinching response” and willingness to help frontline workers during the pandemic.
