Arizona medical students get stethoscopes funded by generous alumni

In November, first-year Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine students on the Arizona campus received their stethoscopes — a gift from generous alumni Stethoscope Honor Roll

“There are few symbols that are more associated with the physician than the stethoscope,” Amit Shah, M.D. . (I ’14), associate dean for academic affairs on the Arizona campus said. “I hope it provides you the superpowers of connection– a connection to the alumni of this school, a connection to the past, a connection to your patient, and a connection to the ritual of medicine. I hope that by putting it on today, you feel even more that you belong to this profession and the rituals of the art of medicine.” 

Thank you, alumni. And best wishes to the new medical students!
