The degree of Doctor of Medicine was awarded today to 88 men and women at commencement exercises for the fourth graduating class of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University.

An audience of more than 800 faculty members, friends and families of the graduates attended the ceremonies. In a tradition established at the first commencement in 1959, the entire graduating class pledged in unison the “Declaration of Geneva,” which affirms that no issues of religion, nationality, race, party politics or social standing can be allowed to come between physician and patient.
