Western University of Health Sciences graduates are well positioned to address the challenges of the 21st century. But they must remember to balance work and family to avoid burnout, and always put the patient first.

WesternU graduated nearly 1,000 new health care professionals during five Commencement ceremonies May 23-25, 2018 in Pasadena, California. Innovative researchers and health care leaders gave inspiring and challenging speeches to graduates as they prepared to begin residencies, continue their education or enter the workforce.
