Irving Bennett Graduation PhotoWhat are some of your favorite memories from Salus/PCO – favorite classes, professors, classmates, clinical experiences, co-workers?

There are lots of fond memories. This hilarious one stands out. Ours was the first class to go to PCO during the summer months since WWII was going on. Finally we were "permitted" to go to classes without a jacket (heretofore, we were to dress with jackets and learn to act like "doctors"). Professor Rybachok was a task- master early in that first summer session. He said that "next Thursday we are going to have a formal exam" in anatomy. So, in keeping with his subtle humor, student Milton Kaplan came to that exam in a tuxedo!
