On September 5, a new tradition began at NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYITCOM). First-year medical students received their first stethoscopes.
The Class of 2023 gathered at Kenneth W. Riland Auditorium for the inaugural Stethoscope Distribution. The future physicians each received engraved personalized stethoscopes, which were gifted by NYITCOM alumni, including, Daniel Ferrara (D.O. ’86), who addressed the group on the significance of their first diagnostic tool. Each stethoscope will not only serve as a vital tool for the next four years, but also a memento that will accompany students into their professional careers and remind them of their NYITCOM roots.
