HENRI R. FORD

Dear Students, I am thrilled to celebrate this extraordinary milestone in your life. This accomplishment is even more significant when one considers the devastating toll on human life resulting from the global pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and its impact on your last few months at the Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine. Thanks to your hard work, dedication, commitment, and professionalism, you were not deterred by the ravages of COVID-19. You are now embarking on the next exciting phase of your journey into the practice of medicine, ready to go on the front lines to combat this virus and future emerging pathogens, alleviate human suffering, and improve the health of humanity. As you continue your training, I hope you take with you all of the lessons learned at the Miller School. I am sure you will agree that you could not have made it this far without the support of your family and friends. The faculty and staff of the Miller School join them in expressing our pride, joy, and heartfelt congratulations for your exceptional achievements. You represent the next generation of University of Miami physicians, and I know you will carry that legacy with pride and distinction. As you take the physician’s oath on this spectacular day, remember that you are privileged to care for patients at a truly historic time in the annals of medicine. You have received the training and are fully equipped with the necessary tools to help define the future of medicine. I remind you to always consider the unrelenting responsibility we carry as physicians: to always put the needs of the patient first. We know that you are ready for the challenge because of the extraordinary education you received from your teachers and mentors at the Miller School. Wherever your career takes you, please know that your University of Miami family will always be here for you. Congratulations!

Henri R. Ford, M.D., M.H.A. Dean and Chief Academic Officer University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine

JULIO FRENK

To the Class of 2020, Congratulations! You stand ready to begin your career in medicine. In 1979, I stood in the same stage of life, but I realize that your own experiences position you to serve the medical profession uniquely. Throughout your academic journey, I have witnessed your resilience in the face of major emergencies, hurricanes, and most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic—which was the cause for the virtual modality of your momentous commencement ceremony. You have exhibited adaptability and the characteristics of a true ’Cane. We know that the Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine and the rest of the University of Miami have widened your horizons and helped you grow personally, professionally, and as a citizen of the world. You were afforded rigorous instruction in the classroom, research laboratory, clinical setting, and the community—while confronting unexpected challenges and welcoming rewarding opportunities. This is a time to feel pride in your accomplishments and positive anticipation for what lies ahead. As we approach our centennial in 2025, the University is taking strategic steps to gain a global and hemispheric leadership position. This is precisely when you will be in the prime of your practice, and I know that you will be successful. I wish you the best and look forward to staying in touch. Stay safe and remain committed. The world needs you, your skills, and your compassion—now, more than ever.

Sincerely,

Julio Frenk, M.D., M.P.H., Ph.D. President, University of Miami Interim CEO, University of Miami Health System

Com m e n c e m e n t Spe a k e r LAURENCE B. GARDNER

Executive Dean for Education and Policy Miller Professor, Department of Medicine

A national leader in medical education and policy, Dr. Laurence B. Gardner has taught more than 8,000 medical students and almost a thousand residents since arriving at the University of Miami more than 45 years ago. Yet, the Miller School of Medicine’s executive dean for education and policy likes to say that his students actually teach him. “When you’re an educator, you have remarkable opportunities to improve your own knowledge,” he said. “Because you actually never understand a subject as well as when you teach it. So, I view teaching as a means to continue to educate myself.” Known as an inspirational teacher, productive administrator, innovative thinker, visionary leader, and excellent physician, Gardner has always seized the opportunity to learn more so others can do better. At Harvard Medical School, where he graduated magna cum laude in 1967, he and fellow classmates took on the task of rewriting the curriculum. At Madigan Army Medical Center, where he spent two years in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, he established a fellowship program in his specialty, nephrology. As a weekend sailor and avid single-engine pilot—he takes Sunday flights like some people take Sunday drives—he earned licenses to captain 100-ton vessels and commercial planes, so he could teach others “just for fun.” Inspired by his early mentors at Harvard, Gardner has devoted much of his professional life to training future physicians to be as prepared, skilled, and adaptable as they can be. His passion will reach a new pinnacle in August, when the Miller School implements its new NextGenMD curriculum for incoming students, which relies on online resources to teach facts and at-school resources to teach problem-solving. It began to take root in 2016, when Gardner, who was serving as interim dean, appointed a task force to modernize the medical school’s curriculum. He was also instrumental in establishing the school’s dual M.D./M.P.H. degree program, among the first and the largest in the nation. Born in New York City and raised on Long Island, Gardner was the first in his family to attend college. His father rose through the ranks of Burlington Industries to become the textile giant’s vice president. His mother was a homemaker. After recovering from an illness that required surgery when he was 17, he entered the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with the intent of becoming a nuclear physicist. But finding laboratory work too lacking in human interaction and influenced by his experience as a patient, he realized a medical career suited him better. Upon completing his medical residency at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was a teaching fellow, he trained in the relatively new field of nephrology, which deals with the physiology and diseases of the kidneys, at the Hospital of the University of Philadelphia in

6

Pennsylvania. He also served as chief medical resident there. Then in 1972—making good on the deferment from the VietnamWar that he and thousands of future physicians received while completing their medical training—he became one of just five nephrologists in the U.S. Army, serving as the chief of the nephrology service at the Madigan teaching hospital in Tacoma, Washington. There, he taught internal medicine to residents and started a fellowship program in nephrology, earning the U.S. Army Commendation Medal for excellence in teaching. When his military service ended in 1974, Gardner was recruited to the University of Miami’s 22-year-old medical school—Florida’s first—where he left an indelible mark on the Department of Medicine. He led its Division of General Medicine for 20 years, and served in the roles of vice chair, interim chair, and chair for a total of 22 years. He also served as chief of the medical service at Jackson Memorial Hospital for 12 years. In his current position as executive dean for education and policy, which Gardner began in 2006, he continues to teach, see patients, and study the role that academic health centers play in the development of U.S. health policy. The former president of the Association of Professors of Medicine, Gardner remains an active member of the National Board of Medical Examiners, which he chaired and has served on for more than two decades, helping to shape the examination that qualifies doctors in the United States. He has authored numerous articles, books, and book chapters on a variety of subjects—including health policy and his particular interests in nephrology: acid-based physiology and clinical disorders of electrolyte metabolism. Tapped into the University’s Iron Arrow Honor Society, Gardner has received many other honors during his lifetime. Listed in “Who’s Who in Medical Sciences Education,” he was inducted as a master of the American College of Physicians in 2011. He remains a member of the American Federation for Clinical Research, American Society of Nephrology, and International Society of Nephrology. For his lifetime contributions to medical education and unwavering dedication to the preparation of physicians, past and future, the University is proud to welcome Laurence B. Gardner as commencement speaker.

The M ac e

The academic mace, an enduring symbol of institutional authority and prestige, is a vestige from prehistoric times. First used as a battle weapon, the mace evolved into a ceremonial staff carried in processions of royalty, magistrates, and church or university officials. The University of Miami’s current mace, which dates back to 1986, was sculpted by former art professor William Ward. He chose a contemporary design, one that reflects the University’s timelessness and perpetual growth from a young institution to one of national prominence. The clean lines and polished silver surface are elegant, dignified, and reflective of colors, textures, and forms in the everchanging environment. Ward indicated that timelessness is further represented by the mace’s geometric design. Rather than employing symbols like books, candles, or globes, he noted that the geometric shapes are not tied to fad or style but are an integral part of our world.

“There are obvious relationships to mathematics and the sciences, and as the mace is rotated, some of the planes at the top resemble letters. Its complexity is like the unfolding plot of a good story,” Ward said. The University of Miami’s mace serves as a symbolic weapon to protect the ideals of truth, justice, and learning. During the commencement ceremony, it is carried at the head of the academic procession by the grand marshal, whose symbolic duty is the protection of the University, its people, and its processes. In 2019, staff and faculty members in the Department of Theatre Arts performed preservation and restoration work on the mace, crafting a new base and reviving the original sheen so that, after decades of use, the mace continues to play its role in the University’s commencement ceremonies.

The Uni versi t y of M ia m i Pre sid e n t ia l C ha ir The University of Miami Presidential Chair, or cathedra, took its place on the commencement stage in 2016 as a symbol of the Office of the President. Traditionally representing the seat of learning, the cathedra was designed and crafted by master furniture maker Austin Matheson, an adjunct professor in the School of Architecture whose family history in South Florida predates the University’s 1925 founding. Matheson carved and joined what appear to be the seamless pieces of the chair from a single slab of highly prized and onceabundant Cuban mahogany wood. It was salvaged from a tree felled by a hurricane in nearby Coconut Grove. The fluidity of his

26

design represents the idea that “We Are One U,” while his use of a contemporary style and a few traditional flourishes represent the University’s rich past and promising future. “The chair is unique. It has no precedent. It stands alone,” Matheson said. Etched by laser, the Great Seal of the University of Miami is prominently displayed on the splat, or back, of the chair. More subtly, twin silhouettes of an ibis head, with its graceful beak, adorn each side of the crest rail. Known for its invincible spirit when hurricanes approach, the marsh bird has been the school mascot since the University opened its doors, just a month after the hurricane of 1926 devastated Miami. Like the chair, the ibis continues to be a symbol of our resilience and renewal as we approach our new century.


Ac a d e m ic R e ga lia The ceremonies of commencement immerse us in the rich tradition of academic honors and dress that dates back to the formation of early universities in Europe beginning around the 12th century. American institutions adopted a code of academic dress at the end of the 19th century, with revisions in 1932, 1959, and 1986 by a committee on costumes and ceremonies supervised by the American Council on Education. The University of Miami awards degrees in three basic divisions: the doctorate, master’s, and baccalaureate, which can be traced to medieval times. The student receiving a “first degree in arts” was crowned with a garland of barberries, hence “baccalaureate” and “bachelor.” The master’s degree was a license to teach (licentia docendi), so the “master” was an appropriate title. The doctor was even better qualified to teach, for that degree required advanced study, independent research, and defense of a dissertation. These standards still apply to the doctorate, except for those conferred honoris causa (honorary degrees) for meritorious service in a public or private endeavor. From medieval practice, academic dress has three items: cap, gown, and hood. In 1895, an intercollegiate commission in the United States drafted a code for academic regalia that most universities, including the University of Miami, follow.

For all degrees, the mortarboard is the traditional cap. The tassel is generally black, with a gold tassel for doctoral-degree recipients, but some universities have chosen to relate the color of the tassel with the major subject of study. The bachelor’s gown is black with long, pointed, open sleeves. The master’s gown is black with long, closed sleeves hanging below the elbow. The doctor’s gown is black and is distinguished by three bars of velvet on full sleeves. The academic hood is the identifying symbol of the degree. Its length indicates which degree it represents: three feet for the baccalaureate, three-and-a-half for the master’s, and four for the doctorate. The lining indicates the college or university that awarded the degree. University of Miami hoods are lined in orange, green, and white. The color of the velvet band represents the academic discipline. Some of the most frequently seen colors are white for arts, yellow for science, blue for philosophy, purple for law, green for medicine, sapphire blue for business, orange for engineering, blue violet for architecture, and apricot for nursing. President Julio Frenk wears a black robe with four black velvet bars. The fourth chevron indicates this is the presidential regalia. The gown features orange and green piping as well as a doctoral hood lined in orange, green and white—reflecting the official University of Miami school colors.

I ron Ar row Hon or Soc ie t y The Iron Arrow Honor Society, which was founded soon after the University of Miami opened in 1926, recognizes individuals who exemplify leadership, scholarship, character, humility, and love of alma mater. In one of the University’s highest honors, new members are chosen with a tap of an iron arrow after a vote by current members.

They are easily recognized by their colorful patchwork jackets from the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida and the distinctive symbol on the collar that identifies the group as a unique clan of the Miccosukee.

Alpha Om e ga A lpha Alpha Omega Alpha can be thought of as the “Phi Beta Kappa for medical schools.” As the only national honor medical society, its mission, developed over the past 100 years, has been to recognize and enhance professionalism, academic excellence, service, and leadership within the

field of medicine. Election to Alpha Omega Alpha is an honor signifying a lasting commitment to scholarship, leadership, professionalism, and service. A lifelong honor, membership in the society confers recognition for a physician’s dedication to the profession and art of healing.
