Dear Medical Student,

You are not the amount of money you have,

You are not the clothes you wear,

You are not the school that you attend,

You are not the profession you pursue,

You are not the grade you receive.


Dear Medical Student,

You are the smile that you put on others faces.

You are the helping hand that you provide your neighbor.

You are the joy you bring to strangers, family, and friends.

You are the one who studies day and night all for me; someone who you have yet to meet.


Dear Medical Student,

You are appreciated!
