School of Medicine Alumni Newsletter 
We have reached that time of year again, when Boston University School of Medicine community members are putting on an extra layer in preparation for fall, while first-year medical students put on their own coats during the White Coat Ceremony, an event symbolizing the onset of their new and exciting journey at BUSM. This year we asked alumni  to share some advice and sentiments about their time at the School of Medicine.  A common theme among these well wishes was the importance of working towards a goal and the positive support system that BUSM provides.
While students in the Class of 2020 are only just beginning their time here, twenty-three students graduated from the inaugural class of the Physician Assistant Program last month in a historic moment for the school and a memorable achievement for themselves.   Reciting the PA Oath together, they celebrated this accomplishment and will soon be entering the next phase of their careers.
BUSM continues to make headlines, and this season is no exception. The American Psychological Association (APA) has announced the 2016 Outstanding Contributions to Science of Trauma Psychology award recipient: Terence M. Keane, PhD, professor of psychiatry, clinical psychology and assistant dean for research. In addition to his impact in his field of scientific research which granted him this award, Dr. Keane's work on psychological trauma has been widely supported by the VA, the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
Whether students are merely beginning their journey at the School of Medicine or have taken their connections and education to create tremendous impact in the field of medicine, our community members and alumni continue to do work that matters.
I hope you enjoy reading more about our alma mater and all that is has to offer.
