Students from the Chicago College of Pharmacy celebrated the beginning of their professional careers at a commencement ceremony on Thursday, March 5, 2020, on the Downers Grove Campus of Midwestern University. A total of 178 students received a Doctor of Pharmacy Degree (Pharm.D.) at the ceremony and will begin their professional pharmacy careers or participate in postgraduate residency programs.
Kathleen H. Goeppinger, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Midwestern University, acknowledged the many achievements of the graduates during their years of rigorous study and clinical experiences. “As you leave Midwestern University, you join a long legacy of stellar graduates who have made a difference in the pharmacy profession,” Dr. Goeppinger said. “Always remember what you’ve learned here and continue to be lifelong learners in order to provide the best possible care to your patients.” The ceremony was held in the auditorium of Cardinal Hall and featured remarks from Matthew James Huedem, Pharm.D., a graduate of the Class of 2020, and a special recognition for students beginning their healthcare careers in the military.
