Pécs is a noted university town with over 30,000 students attending various universities here. On Saturday the July 3rd, we had the rare treat of attending the Graduation Ceremonies of the Medical School of Pécs University. Our lovely friend , Karishma received her Doctorate of Medical Science, Cum Laud. The event was very dignified and traditional. There were over 125 students that received their certificates after more than 6 years of schooling. The students were from countries all over the world and their representative flags were carried in while everyone stood. The sight was very impressive. Another impressive thing was the number of young women that graduated. It seemed that about three fourths of the graduates were young women. We were pleased that Karishma invited us to see her receive such a well deserved diploma. Her parents could not be there but they are justifiably proud of their eldest daughter's achievements. She is a wonderful credit to them and their unfailing support of her desire to be a physician. We wish her the best of everything as she ventures out in the next phase of her career.
