Warning! This is a braggy post!
Last night was the graduation exercises for UT-Southwestern's medical school. As part of Helaman's oral and maxillofacial surgery residency, he was required to complete the classes and training required for a medical degree to have in addition to his dental degree. It also marks the midway point of the residency. In just three short years he will done with all his training and schooling - a total of 13 years!
All medical degree tassels and robes are green, to signify herbs and healing. The orange cloak is worn by all schools in the UT system. He was supposed to have worn purple as well to indicate his dental degree, but you will just have to imagine what that would have looked like. (yikes) Congratulations H!
