    This weekend we celebrate my son finishing med school with his white coat ceremony yesterday and his graduation today. The PA program he just completed was at Eastern Virginia Medical School and is the equivalent of just short of 3 Masters degrees in 28 months as far as credit hours is concerned. It's actually more rigorous than an MD but quite a bit shorter. He just has his PA National Test to take at the end of the month and it's off to finding a job in the medical field. My wife and I are so proud of him for all the hard work he has put in and overcoming the adversity he faced in accomplishing this tremendous goal. I wanted to share my pride and happiness with you all! So have a beer, soda or whatever and raise a glass to my son Eric!

    Wonderful. I'm hoping I can encourage my girls to pursue the PA field also.

    Maybe I'll be asking your son some questions in a few years.

    Congrats !!!

  7. It's always great to hear good news about our youth today. Makes me feel good that when I die, all hope for humanity is not lost.
    A hearty congrats to your son. Cheers, Barrie.
