Many of the graduates stay in state for residency and train in primary care

Ninety-eight students in the MU School of Medicine Class of 2013 officially became physicians during a commencement ceremony held Saturday, May 18, 2013, in Jesse Hall. More than 40 percent of the class will stay in Missouri to complete residencies, and more than 40 percent will train in primary care.

MU has focused on producing physicians for Missouri for more than 165 years. More of the state's physicians received their medical degree from MU than from any other university. MU's medical school is also nationally ranked in primary care. The school's family and community medicine department has ranked in the top 10 nationally for more than 15 years.

Ann Havey, MD, an associate professor in MU's Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences, delivered the school's commencement address. After completing residency training at the MU School of Medicine, Havey remained at the school and has been a faculty member at MU since 1982. She has received numerous teaching excellence awards during her tenure. She received the Golden Apple Award for Teaching Excellence 10 times, the Student Body Teaching Award seven times, and the Paul C.J. Sun Distinguished Faculty Award for Education six times.

More than 40 students completing master's and doctoral degrees in the MU School of Medicine's Departments of Health Management and Informatics, Biochemistry, Molecular Microbiology and Immunology, Medical Pharmacology and Physiology, and Pathology and Anatomical Sciences also received degrees at MU's Graduate School commencement ceremony on May 18.
