It is with a great deal of pleasure, pride and enthusiasm that I welcome you to Western University of Health Sciences’ 2014 Convocation.
This is a big time of year for everyone on campus, but most especially, of course, for our new students, their families and their friends. And it’s an important time, for embarking on an education at WesternU means more than simply going to classes, studying, taking tests, and perfecting technical skills. It also means fully embracing the idea that we are in the people business. The personal care and compassion we demonstrate to one another as members of the WesternU family, and to the patients and communities that seek our aid, are this institution’s calling card, and represent our mission far better than any test or technique.
I’m pleased that we’re embarking on this journey together. Take it from me – you’re about to have the time of your life.
My best to you all,
Philip Pumerantz, PhD
President, Western University of Health Sciences
