The Florida State University College of Medicine Fort Pierce Regional Campus recently honored their tenth graduating class.  Having spent two years here, training one-on-one with physicians all over the Treasure Coast, the eleven members of the Class of 2018 are moving on to their residency programs.  These students will be pursuing careers as doctors in family medicine, pediatrics, medicine-pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, surgery, emergency medicine, and anesthesiology. The graduates gathered with the campus dean, Dr. Juliette Lomax-Homier, community board members, staff, and physician faculty to celebrate their accomplishments at Tradition Town Hall. The event was sponsored by Martin Health System. Awards were presented to the students and faculty.  The Dean’s Award, for the most outstanding graduate, went to Nicholas Karr, future medicine-pediatrics physician. The inaugural Heidi McNaney-Flint Scholarship was presented to Ann Loraine Roc. 
The Class of 2018 presented Dr. George Mitchell, critical care physician at Indian River Medical Center, with the Excellence in Teaching Award.  They chose Dr. Rene Loyola, FSU clerkship faculty for surgery, for the Extra Mile Award.
The Class of 2019 presented the graduating class with a gift, in the form of a donation to PATCHES, Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care, in Fort Pierce.
