This weekend would have marked the annual Residents' Weekend in which all of SCO's residents gathered for presentations and a special pin ceremony.
One of the ceremony highlights includes a presentation by Dr. Cheryl Mengelt, Director of Externship and Residency Programs, in which she shows photos, quotes, or other facts about each resident. We're sharing the presentation that Dr. Mengelt would have presented. All residents are listed, even though several couldn't participate because of COVID-19 demands.
"Please accept my heartfelt congratulations and admiration, as you have faced circumstances like no other residency class has ever faced," Dr. Mengelt told the 44 residents in an email. "You did not miss a beat when asked to meet the mission, goals, and objectives of your programs in a less than typical fashion. The hard work of you and your supervisors have made it possible for each of you to remain on track for a successful and on-time completion of your programs."
Join us in celebrating SCO's Residency Class of 2020!
