The yearbook staff and the Medical Class of 1987 
dedicate The Caduceus to: 

Teresa J. Wronski 

Assistant Dean, Student and Academic Affairs 

in appreciation of her never-ending patience 

and the many hours of counsel 

both academic and personal 

which she has given us. 

'HDean Wronski's career at Loyola began in 1964, when she was hired as a clerk- 
typist in the Admissions Office; by 1971, she had advanced to the position of Super- 
visor of the Admissions Office. In 1975, she graduated from Loyola with a bachelor's 
degree in Psychology, and in 1976, was promoted to the position of Registrar. She 
attained her current position as Assistant Dean of Student and Academic Affairs in 

Thank you Terri! 

The Class of 1987 

When we all arrived on Loyola's 
doorstep in late July, 1983, we were 
all determined to become doctors — 
and, four short years later, here we 
are, all scattering as we go to our re- 
spective residencies. Although we all 
shared a common goal, the paths we 
chose before arriving at Loyola were 
as diverse as those we chose upon 

The Class of 1987, two-thirds 
male and one-third female, is com- 
posed of residents of fourteen states, 
and graduates of sixty different un- 

dergraduate institutions; 63% of the 
class are Illinois residents, with the re- 
mainder from Arizona, Colorado, 
Connecticut, Indiana, Massachusetts, 
Michigan, New Jersey, New York, 
Ohio, Texas and Washington. Al- 
though 58 "/o of our class majored in 
Biology, other undergraduate back- 
grounds included Mathematics, 
Computer Science, Psychology, Psy- 
chobiology. Philosophy, Nursing, Art, 
English and Electrical Engineering.; 
nineteen of our classmates have per- 
formed post-baccalaureate work. 

eleven of whom hold cither a Mast- 
er's Degree or PhD, 

Despite our myriad accomplish- 
ments, the Class of 1987 is one of the 
youngest to come through Loyola - 
Stritch; at the time of application, ages 
ranged from twenty to thirty-five, 
with an average age of twenty-two 

In spite of our widely different 
backgrounds and pre-medical occu- 
pations, we came together at Loyola, 
to seek out a common goal. Having at- 
tained that, we disperse again...

August 1, 1983: 130 strangers 
came together to become Loyola 
Stritch School of Medicine's Class 
of 1987. It was one of the hottest 
summers on record. Are we the 
only medical school in the country 
that starts this early? 

We already had our books be- 
fore class started; the first and only 
time that this would happen in our 
medical school careers. Our classes: 
Anatomy, Biochemistry and Histol- 
ogy; each had a personality of its 
own. Anatomy lab was painted in 
the colors of the Irish flag, courtesy 
of Dr. XY O'Morchoe. We wore a 
variety of outlandish costumes. 
Who can forget Tony Musci's yel- 
low plaid sportcoat? At the end of 
the semester we disposed of our 
anatomy clothes in various ways: the 
garbage, the bonfire or the clothing 
drive box. Remember Tyrone, Dave 
Brottman's cadaver, who had to be 
cordoned off when he developed a 
methane gas leak? And as if real 
practicals weren't bad enough, we 
Instituted mock practicals so we 
could go through the experience 
again and again. 

All I remember about Histology 
is that everything was purple or 
pink, that we got candy at every 
practical and that Dr. Laveile was a 
peach. Biochemistry is a blur and 
best forgotten: Slides that stayed 

up for about five seconds. Dr. Ro- 
senberg's account of a Nobel Prize 
Dinner, Dr. Scarpa's Bozo impres- 
sion and Dr. Miller's TATA Box. 

It wasn't all work and no play; 
we had Halloween and Christmas 
parties, a trip to the Dunes and a 
baseball game, champagne after the 
first set of exams, MDL progressive 
dinners and many Friday nights at 
the Pub. In our MDL, we celebrated 

birthdays every month. Mark Bates 
was the caretaker of our goldfish Z- 
line. Artifact and a few others that 
bit the dust. Phil, Kirwan, Brian and 
Elaine began their Santa and his 
elves tradition that would continue 
for the next four years. The first year 
was a time when we formed 
friendships that would last a life-

With one year of medical 
school filed away, we entered our 
sophomore year as seasoned vet- 
erans. Rumors that first semester 
sophomore year would be one of 
our most difficult were fairly accu- 

Every night of the semester, ail 

through the school. 
Not a student was sleeping, no 

one cou!d stay cool. 
Dr. Ross and Dr. Yotis danced 

in our heads, 
Not to mention Dr. Davis with 

his long list of meds. 
On Tegretol, on Zantac, on 

Codeine and Ceclor. 
On Lasix, on Mandol, on 

Quinidine and Theodur. 
There was Staph and Strep 

and Gonorrhea. 
Crohn's, PID and Emphysema. 
And, finally, in December, 

exams were all done. 
Another semester was finished, 

to the dismay of none. 
In the second semester, we fi- 
nally got a taste of what medical 
school is really about: THE CLINI- 
CAL EXPERIENCE. But there was still 
Organs Systems, Comedy Medicine 
and National Boards to contend 

With stethoscopes and ham- 
mers, we were ready to go. 
And all we awaited was for 

Bering to say "GO". 
Then off we all went to 

feel that first prostate. 
To hear that first murmur, 

was it early or late? 
That first write-up nearly 

dried up my pen. 
And back in the classroom 

I drew my first Venn. 
Comedy Med we were learning 

so good. 
Listening to pearls from 

Walter M. Wood. 
And when P-Dog was over, we 

prepared for the wards. 
Except for one thing. 

We had to take Boards. 
When we finished with Boards, 

Two years were now done. 
Bpt with two years still left, 

There'd be plenty more

"Like a Surgeon, cutting for the 
very first time!!!" 

Sound familiar??? What did 
"Surgery" mean to you? For us as a 
class, surgery meant many different 
things. Despite being called 
"TOADS" by Dr. Prinz, or having 
our suture cutting abilities precisely 
measured by Dr. Pickleman, we all 
managed to survive. 

In part, the challenge of the 
Surgery rotation was learning to do 
things the "surgery way." The first 
question many of us had was, what 
really is surgery? "Surgery," as de- 
fined by Stedman's Dictionary is 
"the medical diagnosis and treat- 
ment of injury, deformity, and dis- 
ease by manual and instrumental 
operation." Or in medical student 
lingo, "the abdomen, the final fron- 
tier; our mission, to seek out ab- 
scesses and cancer, to rearrange the 
human anatomy, to boldly go where 
no man has gone before." 

We then wondered who is a 
surgeon? A surgeon is one who 
surges: to "surge" is defined as "to 
move in a billowing or swelling 
manner; to rise and heave over viol- 
ently, as waves ... a violent rising 
and falling; a sudden onrush." Does 
that describe any one you had the 
privilege to work with??? 

On the whole we owe a lot to 
our surgery experience. In what 
other rotation, with the possible ex- 
ception of Loyola Cardiology lla, did 
we really learn to call the hospital 
homel During this rotation, we 
were able to develop the ability to 
fall asleep on our feet while holding 
retractors, and yet be able to wake 
at a split second and brilliantly pro- 
duce the name of a certain piece of 
mush being worshipped by the at- 

tending. Oh, how well we remem- 
bered our Gross Anatomy!!! 



H&P's, starting IV's, 3 hour 
rounds, starting IV's, morning report, 
starting IV's — these filled our days, 
nights and weekends. Remember 
having to write a 25 page H&P for your 
case checker who would undoubted- 
ly say, "I'm sorry, but his hobbies 
aren't listed." Problem lists each had 
72 problems; log books had to be 
creatively written.

Delivering our first baby was 
the first real experience for many of 
us as "the doctor." 
The long days and nights on call, 
and the anxiety and anticipation of 
the expectant mother required 
both patience and endurance on 
the part of both doctors and pa- 
tients. Obstetrics, by its nature, re- 
quired that we characterize our 
own individual styles of bedside 
manners, regardless of the demand 
for our time and effort. This was not 
often easy, yet it all seemed bal- 
anced by the tears of joy in a new 
mother's eyes, on the proud smile 
of a new grandfather. We, the doc- 
tors-in-training, smiled as proudly 
as any as we hurried back to the call 
room to catch just a hint of a night's 


The six week rotation in psychi- 
atry is not one that many of us will 
forget; or should I say repress? But 
whether you enjoyed it or not, 
much less believed the unusual and 
sometimes bizarre ideas discussed 
in the name of medicine, you must 
agree that six weeks of psych 
appears to have a major purpose: to 
drive junior clerks crazy. 

This rotation does more than 
simply introduce students to vari- 
ous aspects of mental illness; it 
caused some as well. Who could 
leave a long, hard day at Mines in 
anything but a depressed mood? 
What of the clerks at Aiexian 
Brothers who suffered adjustment 
disorders when they realized that 
after five weeks of a two pm tee-off 
times they would soon begin Cards 
lla. The greatest sympathy, howev- 
er, has to be given to the brave 
clerks of 3-south. These clerks be- 
came agoraphobic when they real- 
ized that some of the most violent, 
ill patients they saw in the "quiet 
room" lived only a block or two 
away. Surely, this was enough to 
cause many clerks to stay away from 

We did learn quite a bit about 
practicalities at the VA. Kerwin 
Webb developed a sure-fire meth- 
od of decreasing the amount of 
time it takes to get a chest x-ray by 
having the patient act agitated. 

Who could possibly forget the 
new awareness in which we regar- 
ded "gunners" as "obsessive-com- 
pulsive" or as the ever popular "anal 
sadistic." We learned to regard 
mental illness in a new light and 

added new phrases to our vocablu- 
laries, ie "I see," or, "Hm-mm," or, 
"Care to share that with us?" All of 
this without listening to a single 
word being said. Amazing.

Subinternship, what a concept! 
Eight weeks of your senior year in 
which you are expected to act and 
think like an intern, without any of 
the authority or ultimate responsi- 
bility of a real intern. Those students 
that have managed to avoid medi- 
cine clerkships at the Mecca can 
count on four weeks of "Cards 2A," 
an unfortunate event if your subin- 
ternship is in April or May. 

Overall, I suppose it was a posi- 
tive experience, expecialiy the first 
week of general medicine. Our 
names appeared on the resident call 
list, with an asterisk next to it signi- 
fying that we were a medical stu- 
dent. However, the nurses'were un- 
familiar with this asterisk (or "scarlet 
letter" if you will) and assumed that 
we were real interns. 

Six pm on the day of my first call 
I was paged to respond to an elevat- 
ed blood glucose. "I would give the 
patient 10 units of regular insulin SQ 
..." but before 1 could continue, 
the nurse responded, "Thank you 
doctor," and hung up. Wow, this is 
great! A fourth year student giving 
orders over the telephone! 

Later on in the evening, a simi- 
lar page for an elevated blood glu- 
cose occurred. 

I answered, "Well, I would give . . .," 
but before 1 could continue, an ob- 
viously more informed nurse re- 
sponded, "Give my @#$ ! How 
about you come up here and find 
the intern or third year and get 
whatever it is you want to do coun- 
tersigned — nurses can't take or- 
ders from medical students!" . . . 
click. Oh well, the dream had to end 





The neurologist and the internist ex- 
hibit significant differences in approach. 
The internist is usually trained to think 
physiologically in terms of the meaning 
and cause of specific symptoms. The neu- 
rologist, on the other hand, brings to the 
patient encounter not only his history and 
general physical examination, but a special 
"neurological examination." This special 
examination, which we learned in Physical 
Diagnosis, but tended to minimize in oth- 
er rotations, is designed to answer the 
questions, "Where is the lesion?" and 
"What is the nature of the lesion?" rather 
than, "What is wrong with the patient?" 

During every morning report, we 

were required to read the head CT's, pro- 
vide differential diagnoses, and state our 
anatomical as well as etiologic impres- 
sions. Towards the end of the four weeks, 
we were even able to discuss patient man- 
agement in terms of diagnostic and thera- 
peutic plans. 

Lectures and conferences provided 
us with famous names of the past: Marcus 
Gunn, Argyll Robertson and Broca, to 
name a few; a pneumonic for peripheral 
neuropathies: "Dag the rapist!"; a test of 
our neuroanatomy memory during brain 
cutting sessions; and, various methods, 
old and new, of dealing with someone 
who is malingering. The one thing we nev- 

er did learn though, was the cause of a 
classmate's constant shaking of a foot or 
leg during lectures. 

And remember that a normal review 
of neurological complaints is: Patient 
denies headaches, dizziness, nausea, vom- 
itting, difficulty writing or reading, ep- 
isodes of fainting, cerebrovascular dis- 
eases or alcoholism, anosmia, blurred or 
distorted vision, blindness, diplopia, 
weakness or numbness of the face, ageu- 
sia, tinnitus, dysphagia or dysarthria, un- 
steadiness, clumsiness, paresthesias, 
dysesthesias and loss of sensation in the

The clerkship in Third World 
Medicine taught in St. Lucia, one of 
the Windward Islands in the Caribbe- 
an, provides unique opportunities 
with which little in medical school can 
compare. While there, one can see a 
different culture, participate in more 
basic medical care, and yes, even 
catch typhoid fever. 

For the twenty-two class mem- 
bers who go, I'm sure that there are 
many things that most would agree 

with. The land is beautiful, the people cost equalled several months of the 
are friendly, and the fulltime volun- average salary. It made me more con- 
teers, if not always the easiest people scious of how materialistic my society 

to work with, are all interesting. 

For me though, the memories of 
St. Lucia will always be bittersweet 
ones. I remember the times when I 
would be riding my new 10-speed 
bike aroung the town and notice the 
furtive, jealous glances I would get 
from some of the people. It would 
never let me forget that my little toy's 

is and made me rethink about what it 
is in life that is truly worthwhile.

The American Medical Student 
Association is the largest and one of 
the most active organizations of med- 
ical students in the nation. AMSA's 
purpose has been to provide a vehicle 
by which medical students can keep 
informed of and make changes relat- 
ing to medicine as it affects them as 
students, as it will affect them as doc- 
tors, and as it affects them as political 
and social beings. The Loyola chapter 
of AMSA has paralleled the national 
organization in its support from Loyo- 
la medical studentsand in its activities. 

Our class took an active part in 
AMSA by participating in or being or- 
ganizers of a variety of activities. We 
continued such traditional AMSA so- 
cial projects as the Instrument Co-op, 
the Book Exchange, and the Mock 
Anatomy Lab Practical. We organized 
films and speakers to supplement our 
medical and social education. We en- 
gaged in community outreach pro- 
jects. And we worked with and 
helped support other Loyola organi- 

In addition to our local projects, 
many of us participated in national 
AMSA activities. Several of our class- 
mates travelled to the national AMSA 
convention in Washington DC as 
freshmen. There, we lobbied on Capi- 
tol Hill, listened to numerous speak- 
ers, and toured our nation's capitol. 
We also took part in AMSA's national 
convention in Chicago's Palmer 
House as sophomores. 

AMSA allowed us to be more 
than just "medical" students. It taught 
us how to lead, how to organize, how 
to work together. We hope and be- 
lieve this attitude will carry over into 
our future wherein Loyola's graduates 
will not only be the best medical doc- 
tors possible, but will also be some- 
thing a little bit more.

Peer Counsellors are a group of 
students dedicated to the personal 
and psychological well-being of their 
fellow students. In association with 
Student Health and the Department 
of Psychiatry, they undergo a training 
program designed to help recognize 
and assist classmates who may need a 
friendly shoulder to lean on, or an ear 
to listen to, during stressful academic 
or personal times. For more deeply 
rooted problems, they can serve as 
the intermediary between students 
and the Psychaitry Department. In ad- 
dition to having daily office hours, 
Peer Counsellors have written a "How 
to Survive Medical School" hand- 
book for first year students, and have 
been actively involved in training 
Peer Counsellors for both Dental and 
Graduate students.

The Phi Chi Medical Fraternity 
was re-instated at Loyola in 1984. 
Now an established and well- rec- 
ognized organization. Phi Chi spon- 
sors educational and social activities 
for its members and for the Medical 
Center Community. 

Junior year, campus events in- 
cluded the Distinguished Professor 
Lecture Series, a Saint Patrick's Day 
party, and everyone's favorite, the 
annual Pig Roast. Other events in- 
cluded a concert at Ravinia, Boxer 
Shorts VIII, and a Beer Garden Wel- 
come for new members. 

Senior year. Phi Chi joined 
forces with Hunger Week to raise 
money and collect food at the Hal- 
loween party.

Alpha Sigma Nu, a Jesuit honor 
society, seeks members on the basis 
of scholarship as well as potential 
leadership in the medical profession 
and personal integrity. The society is 
organized for educational purposes 
exclusively, and its aims are the pro- 
motion of scholarship and research in 
medical schools, the encouragement 
of a high standard of character and 
conduct among medical students and 
graduates, and the recognition of 
high attainment in medical science, 
practice, and related fields. 

The name of Alpha Sigma Nu sig- 
nifies the Greek words Adelphotes 
Skolastikon Nikephoron (company of 
honor students). The ASN key bears 

the three Greek letters together with 
the eye of wisdom. 

Alpha Sigma Nu is unique among 
honor societies in that it seeks the 
most promising students of the Jesuit 
schools, students who demonstrate 
an intelligent appreciation of and 
commitment to the ideals of Jesuit 
higher education - intellectual, social, 
moral, and religious. Selection to Al- 
pha Sigma Nu is one of the highest 
honors that can be given on a Jesuit

The Medical Student Union is the 
central governing body for the medi- 
cal classes and student organizations. 
Medical Student Union is made up of 
voting members who are the class of- 
ficers and non-voting members who 
are committee members and repre- 
sentatives from most of the student 
organizations. Representatives from 
Medical Student Union serve on 
many Medical Center and University 
committees, including: Academic 
Computing, Admissions, Athletic 
Steering, Basic Science Curriculum, 
Clinical Sciences Curriculum, Educa- 
tional Resources, Faculty Appoint- 
ments, Financial Aid, Medical Coun- 
cil, Parking, Residency, Student 
Health, Student Life, Student Lounge, 
and Student Promotions. The major 
Medical Student Union events during 
the academic year include the All- 
School Picnic, St. Luke's Night, and 
the golf outing. Medical Student 
Union also sponsors and co-sponsors 
Casino Night, the Boxer Shorts Party, 
and events with AMWA, Ai, PSR, and 
Peer Counselling. 

During the four years that the 
Class of 1987 has been at Loyola, we 
have had a greater impact on Medical 
Student Union and the medical 
school curriculum than any other 
class in recent history. Our class de- 
veloped the course evaluation forms 
which, via the Basic Sciences Curricu- 
lum Committee, were adopted by the 
Dean's office for regular administra- 
tion to students. The results of the ini- 
tial evaluations provided vital infor- 
mation to the administration which 
resulted in many positive changes in 
the medical curriculum. There were 
also many changes affecting Medical 
Student Union directly. Our class was 
the first to have juniors rather than 
seniors as Medical Student Union of- 
ficers. Our class was the driving force 

behind the complete re-organization 
of Medical Student Union. We stan- 
dardized the budget and increased 
the amount of money given to stu- 
dent organizations. We organized the 
parking keycard lottery system and 
fought successfully for more key- 
cards. Medical Student Union also 
doubled the number of beds in the 
student call rooms. These represent 
only a few of the many things which 
the members of our class who partici- 
pated in Medical Student Union ac- 
complished. It is an impressive list 
which shows that, in more ways than 
one, our class will leave a lasting im- 
pression on Loyola University.

Loyola University's Foster G. 
McGaw Hospital is internation- 
ally known for its success in car- 
diac care and open heart surgery. Un- 
der the direction of Doctor Roque Pi- 
farre, chairman of the department of 
Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery 
and surgical director of the heart 
transplant program, Loyola does more 
than 1300 open heart surgeries a year, 
and has one of the lowest mortality 

rates in the Unites States, less than two 

In March, 1984, Loyola began its 
heart transplant program, the first one 
in the Chicago area in more than fif- 
teen years. Since that time, it has be- 
come a leading regional heart trans- 
plant center, having performed 78 
heart transplants and one heart-lung 
transplant as of March 1, 1987. 

The ages of the heart transplant 

patients ranged from seven to sixty 
years. The youngest, Ryan Louis of Ur- 
bana, Illinois, was the youngest recipi- 
ent of a heart in the state. 

The Loyola heart transplant pro- 
gram has an 86 percent one year actu- 
arial survival rate and an 81 percent 
two year actuarial survival rate. The 
survival rate nationally for heart trans- 
plant patients after one year is 80 per-

To our parents and family: 
Thank you for all your love, support, and help 
throughout the years. This degree belongs to 
you because without you we wouldn't have 
made it. We will always remember that. We love 
you all.

To all my classmates who jealously 
made jokes at the expense of all dom- 
ers, I leave this picture. Now you will 
have the memory of the golden dome 
you always wanted. Please show the 
appropriate respect. 

Tigger and I would like to extend our condo- 
lences to the unenlighted majority of you who 
have chosen to deal with adults in your careers. 
We will be thinking of you as we watch cartoons 
with our patients, play with all the latest toys in 
our office, and get thank-you hugs from the pa- 
tients. What else could a person want in life? 
Pediatrics is really where it is at. (In case you for- 
got Walt Disney's or A. A. Milne's tales of Win- 
nie the Pooh's companion, Tigger is pro- 
nounced like Trigger without the "r".) 

Well, it's been a tough four years, huh . , . 

It's been the best of times, It's been the worst of times , 

It's been Bryan, Leighs, Fitz, John, Tribco, and Nix . . . 

It's been Woodburne, Cecil, and Schwartz . . .

"As an endless dream it went on; The 
spirit of the past brooding over a new 
generation, the chosen youth from the 
muddled, unchastened world, still fed 
romantically on the mistakes and half- 
forgotten dreams of dead statesmen and 
poets. Here was a new generation, shout- 
ing the old cries, learning the old creeds, 
through a revery of long days and nights; 
destined finally to go out into that dirty 
gray turmoil to follow love and pride; a 
new generation dedicated more than the 
last to the fear of poverty and the wor- 
ship of success; grown up to find all Gods 
dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man 
shaken ..."

while attending the delivery of a 
baby, a medical student suddenly felt 
faint. The doctor in charge told him 
to squat with his head between his 
knees until he felt better. 

At that moment, a fellow student 
entered the delivery room, saw his 
friend crouching against the wall and 
joined him in a similar position. After 
a few minutes, he whispered, "When 
are we allowed to look?"

The Waking 

I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow. 
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear. 
I learn by going where I have to go. 

We think by feeling. What is there to know? 
I hear my being dance from ear to ear. 
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow. 

Of those so close beside me, which are you? 
God bless the Ground! I shall walk softly there, 
and learn by going where I have to go. 

Light takes the Tree; but who can tell us how? 
The lowly worm climbs up a winding stair; 
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow. 

Great Nature has another thing to do 
To you and me; so take the lively air. 
And, lovely, learn by going where to go. 

This shaking keeps me steady. I should know. 
What falls away is always. And is near. 
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow. 
I learn by going where I have to go.

Four years of medical school certainly 
does place limits on your cycling time or on 
any other leisure time activity. Although 
residency programs surely will not provide 
a surplus of free time, try to enjoy it as best 
you can. Enjoy yourself, and don't spend the 
rest of your life on morning rounds. 

A Coat 

I made my song a coat 
Covered with embroideries 
Out of old mythologies 
From heel to throat; 
But the fools caught it, 
Wore it in the world's eyes 
As though they'd wrought it. 
Song, let them take it, 
For there's more enterprise 
In walking naked.

After weeks of abuse, intimidation, and 
ifiinly veiled threats, I have been coaxed into 
writing my half-page for the yearbook. It's not 
easy to try to summate four years of life on pa- 
per and even more difficult to do it well. But 
what the heck, I'll give it a whack. 

My first ideas were to try to write four lim- 
ericks, one for each year of school. My at- 
tempts, though, were stymied by being only 
able to find one word to rhyme with Loyola - 
that being payola. Next, I tried to find some pic- 
tures to be representative of my experiences. 
Unfortunately, I could only remember one pic- 
ture being taken of me, and considering how 
I looked in it, I'm glad I can't find it. Thus, my 
last four years must be described thusly. 

The freshman year did have a few unusual 
highlights for me. For some now unknown rea- 

son, 1 decided to write a letter to Johnny Carson 
asking if he would like to contribute to a schol- 
arship fund for needy medical students. In spite 
of the fact that we offered him a free facelift or 
liver transplant for Ed McMahon, he declined 
our request. 

Also, that year was notable for minor hoo- 
pla surrounding a professor's unconventional 
description of Argyll-Robertson pupil. It was an 
educational experience for me because I had 
an opportunity to see the double-dealing and 
back-stabbing that went on in the Administra- 
tion. I also had the misfortune to see the prob- 
lems that a few spineless students in our class 
and in others could cause. It's sad to say that we 
must put up with people who react but don't 

The sophomore year was filled mostly with 
petulant whining about Microbiology exams. 
While I spent a lot of my time along with several 
other folks in trying to right the wrongs, I can't 
report that we did much that year. However, 
the chairman's hair is grayer and he drools a lit- 

tle more than he used to. It gladdens my heart 
to think we played even a small part in this. 

The clinical years were such a weird blend 
of events that no order can be put to them. I 
remember sneaking out of Psychiatry lectures 
with Brad Betz to play golf, watching Phil Sheri- 
dan handing out Kingsbury near-beer to his 
Surgery patients, asking Ron Trout, "What are 
we supposed to do now?" in Ob/Gyn, compar- 
ing flu symptoms with Val Atkins during Peds, 
and observing Eric Dybal trying to pick up a 
"dizzy but voluptuous" female delegate from 
Ohio during an AMA convention in Las Vegas. 

Spread out through all these years, I have 
made some nominal and some major changes. 
I made changes in my wardrobe, met a very nice 
woman, now a fiancee by the name of Cheryl 
(there may be a cause and effect there), and 
made some very good friends. Although the 
world of medicine is in mass confusion these 
days, I'm glad I came here and I'll see you at the 
class reunion.

when I was accepted to medical school, a 
friend gave me an excerpt from a medical school 
graduation speech, asking me to read it often, hop- 
ing that some of the words would sink in. I shared 
it with you before and I now wish to share it again, 
especially when we have many more "important" 
things to worry about. 

"Be skilled, be learned, be aware of the dignity 
of your calling. But please don't ever lose sight of 
your own simple humanity. 

Unfortunately, that may not be so easy. You're 
entering a special place in our society. People will 
be awed by your expertise. You'll be placed in a 
position of privilege. You'll live well, people will 
defer to you, call you by your title, and it may be 
hard to remember that the word "doctor" is not 
actually your first name. 

I ask of you, possess your skills, but don't be 
possessed by them. You're entering a very select 

group. You have a monopoly on medical care. 
Please be careful not to abuse this power that you 
have over the rest of us. 

Put people first. And I include in that not just 
people, but that which exists between people. Let 
me challenge you. With all your study, you can 
read my X-rays like a telegram. But can you read 
my involuntary muscles? Can you see the fear and 
uncertainty in my face? Will you tell me when you 
don't know what to do? Can you face your own 
fear, your own uncertainty? When in doubt, can 
you call in help? 

Will you be the kind of doctor who cares more 
about the case than the person? (Nurse, call the 
gastric ulcer and have him come in at three). You'll 
know you're in trouble if you find yourself wishing 
they would mail in their liver in a plain brown en- 

Where does money come on your list? Will 

Rick Calderon 

it be the sole standard against which you reckon 
your success? Where will your family come on 
your list? How many days and nights, weeks and 
months, will you separate yourself from them, bur- 
ied in your work, before you realize that you've 
removed yourself from an important part of your 
life? And if you're a male doctor, how will you re- 
late to women? Women as patients, as nurses, as 
fellow doctors-and later, as students? 

Thank you for taking on the enormous re- 
sponsibility that you have and for having the 
strength to have made it to this day. I don't know 
how you've managed to learn it all. But there is one 
more thing you can learn about the body that only 
a non-doctor would tell you and I hope you always 
remember this: the head bone is connected to the 
heart bone. Don't ever let them come apart."

To my wonderful, supportive wife Suzanne,

And your doubt can become a 
good quality if you train it. It must be- 
come knowing, it must become criti- 
cism. Ask it, whenever it wants to spoil 
something for you, why something is 
ugly, demand proof from it, test it and 
you will find it perhaps bewildered 
and embarrassed, perhaps also pro- 
testing. But don't give in, insist on ar- 
guments, and act in this way, attentive 
and persistent, every single time, and 
the day will come when, instead of 
being a destroyer, it will become one 
of your best workers-perhaps the

Dear Scampi, 

Perhaps you have heard of me and my nationwide 
campaign in the cause of temperance. Each year 
for the past fourteen years, I have made a tour of 
Florida, Southern Georgia, Indiana, Iowa and Illi- 
nois and have delivered a series of lectures on the 
evils of drinking. 

On this tour, I have been accompanied by young 
friend and assistant, former Notre Dame footbal- 
ler,Clyde Lindstone. Clyde, a young man of good 
family and excellent backround, is a pathetic ex- 
ample of life, ruined by excessive indulgence in 
whiskey and women. 

Clyde would appear with me at the lectures and 
sit on the platform wheezing and staring at the 
audience through bleary bloodshot eyes, sweating 
profusely, making obscene gestures, picking his 
nose and passing gas, while I would point him oui 
as an example for the people to see what over-in' 
dulgence can do to a person. 

Recently, Clyde died. A mutual friend has given 
me your name and 1 wonder if you would be 
available to take Clyde's place on my summer 
tour. Please contact me for further details. 

Yours in faith. 
Father C. Salvino

Freshman year it seems so far away 
Oh my God I'm a doctor today 
Oh I wish it was yesterday 


All the patients are my responsibility 
I'd better get a lawyer to protect me 
Oh I wish it was yesterday 

I did something wrong 

I don't know 

the pulse wouldn't stay 
Now they all look at me 

How I long for yesterday ay ay ay ay ay 


All my troubles seemed so far away 
Now its up to me to save the day 
Oh I wish it was yesterday 


The facts from my brain have gone away 
Oh please God let them live another day 
Oh 1 wish it was yesterday 

I don't remember any side effect 

who cares 

they'll die anyway 
But if I don't warn of them all 

then in jail I'll be to stay ay ay ay ay ay 

Oh but yesterday 

I was nothing, now look at me today 
1 can see that soon I will get big pay 
Oh to forget my debts of yesterday 


All I wanted to do was help mankind 

But now a Porsche 944 is what I have in mind 

Oh now I'm glad its not yesterday 

You are 

the wind 


my wings.

American Medical Women's Association 

AMWA, a national organization 
for women physicians, was formed in 
1915 in New York City to meet the 
needs of the woman professional, 
from publishing a journal with articles 
written by women to providing a sup- 
port network for the few women in 
medicine. Today AMWA not only 
serves many of the same needs, but 
also is a politically active force and an 

advocate of women's health issues. 

The Loyola Chapter of AMWA 
was founded in 1983. Activities spon- 
sored by the Class of 1987 members 
included seminars and "Lunch with 
the Docs," a series of discussions by 
women physicians in different spe- 
cialties. Six members attended the an- 
nual national meeting in New York 
City in November 1984.

The Loyola - St r itch Class of 1987 wishes 
to thank the following Departments for 
their financial support of The Caduceus: 

Community & Family 

Cardiovascular Surgery 
Otolaryngology & H/N 


Medical Humanities 
Obstetrics & Gynecology 


James M. Lynch, M.D.

The caduceus, the international 
symbol of medicine, derives its name 
from the staff of Aesculapius, the Ro- 
man god of medicine. The symbol 
depicts an ancient method of curing 
infestations of the guinea worm, Dr 
acunculus medinensis. This disease 
was first described by Agatharchides 
of Caidus, a tutor of one of the sons 
of Ptolemy, in the second century BC. 
The adult worm invades the subcuta- 
naeous tissues of the feet of human 
hosts when the host wades in infested 
water. When the female is gravid, it 

forces its uterus out of the skin of the 
foot and bursts, releasing young 

Velschius, in 1674, first described 
the method of passing a stick through 
the protruding loop of uterus, and 
winding the worm on a stick to re- 
move it from the skin. This cure is still 
used today in areas of Africa, India, 
and the Middle East, where the worm 
is endemic. The cure was no doubt 
known long before this time, howev- 
er, as this quote from the Old Testa- 
ment describes: 

"... And they journeyed from 
Mount Hor by way of the Red Sea, to 
compass the land of Cedom . . ." 

And the Lord sent fiery serpents 
among the people, and they bit the 
people; and much of Israel died; and 
the Lord said unto Moses, 'Make thee 
a fiery serpent and set it upon a pole; 
and it shall come to pass that everyone 
that is bitten, when he looketh upon 
it, shall live.'" 


Alpha Omega Alpha 

Alpha Omega Alpha is the only 
national honor medical society in the 
world. Its raison d'etre can be ex- 
pressed in a phrase: to recognize and 
perpetuate excellence in the medical 
profession. As stated in the society's 
constitution, "Alpha Omega Alpha is 
organized for educational purposes 
exclusively and not for profit, and its 
aims shall be the promotion of schol- 
arship and research in medical 
schools, the encouragement of a high 

standard of character and conduct 
among medical students and gradu- 
ates, and the recognition of high at- 
tainment in medical science, practice, 
and related fields." 

Every science was thus far ad- 
vanced towards perfection by the 
emulous diligence of contemporary 
students and the gradual discoveries 
of one age improving on another. 
..Either truths hitherto unknown 

must be discovered, or those which 
are already known enforced by stron- 
ger evidence, facilitated by clearer 
method, or elucidated by brighter il- 
lustrations. "

Tom Brokaw 

Tom Brokaw, a native of Webster, 
South Dakota, graduated as a Political 
Science major from The University of 
South Dakota. His career in broadcast 
journalism began in 1962 at KMTV in 
Omaha, Nebraska. In 1965, he worked 
briefly for WSB-TV in Atlanta; he then 
moved to Los Angeles, where, less 
than a year later, he became anchor 
of the late evening news on KNBC. In 
1973, he began a three year stint as 
NBC's White House correspondent, 
where he covered some of the most 
tumultuous years in American poli- 
tics. He accompanied President Nixon 
to Moscow in 1974, and reported de- 
tails of each Watergate development. 
He joined the "Today Show" in 1976, 
and hosted that news program for five 

NBC Nightly News 

Throughout his career, Mr. Bro- 
kaw has covered national elections, 
royai weddings, assassinations, Soviet 
summits, presidential tours of Europe, 
wars and natural disasters. He an- 
chored documentaries on a wide 
range of topics, from "Lee lacocca" to 
"Journey to the Heart of China." 

Mr. Brokaw holds honorary de- 
grees from Syracuse and Hofstra Uni- 
versities, Washington U. in St. Louis, 
and the University of South Dakota. 

He assumed his present duties as 
anchor of NBC Nightly News in April 
1982, with Roger Mudd and John 
Chancellor. He has been sole anchor 
of that program since September 

"Doctors are so many contradic- 
tions, we want them to have all the an- 

swers. They understand that a medical 
degree is also a measure of how much 
they don't know. We want them to 
practice on others and only treat us. 
They know they never stop practic- 
ing. We think doctors have it made, 
big homes, big cars, big incomes. They 
know that with a medical degree can 
also come high divorce rates and alco- 
holism, drug abuse, even suicide. 

Maybe we expect too much from 
Medicine. Maybe we'd all be a lot 
healthier if as patients and doctors, we 
worked harder at understanding each 
other and if we remembered that 
Medicine is not a perfect science per- 
formed by perfect people. " 

The Class of 1987 is proud to wel- 
come Mr. Tom Brokaw as our gradua- 
tion speaker.

Dr. Tobin's career started in 1942, 
when he received his MD from the 
University of Chicago. After interning 
at Presbyterian Hospital, he served in 
the Army from 1943 to 1945, spend- 
ing 290 days in combat in Italy. After 
his discharge, he returned to the Uni- 
versity of Chicago as a pathology resi- 
dent. In early 1946, Dr. Tobin served 
as a fellow in medicine at the Mayo 
Clinic; he stayed four and a half years, 
during which time he also earned a 

MS from the University of Minnesota. 
In 1955 he began a thirteen year 
stint at Cook County Hospital, begin- 
ning as director of cardiology, and se- 
nior member of the Hektoen Institute 
for Medical Research. In 1963 he 
trained formally in cardiovascular 
physiology, and was elected chief of 
staff at County four years later. After 
working briefly once more at Mayo, 
Dr. Tobin returned to Cook County 
in 1969. 

That same year. Dr. Tobin accept- 
ed a position as chief of cardiology at 
Loyola University's new hospital. He 
soon became chairman of medicine. 
In 1977, he became the John W. 
Clarke Chair of Medicine, and in 
1980, received the Stritch Medal. 

On January 1, 1987, Dr. Tobin re- 
tired as dean of the Stritch School of 
Medicine, a title he had held since 
1982; he will continue as professor of 

John Tobin 


Dr. Faith LaVelle 




As we make the significant transition in our 
life from medical student to resident. Or. LaVelle 
of the Anantomy Department makes her own 
transition from professional life into retirement. 
Many years of Dr. LaVelle's life have been spent 
teaching medical students, which she has greatly 
enjoyed; however, now is the time for her to 
move on to do the many other things she has 
wanted to do. 

Dr. Lavelle received her B.A. and M.A. at 
Mount Holyoke College, Massachusetts, was cer- 
tified in Invertebrate Zoology at Marine Biological 
Laboratories, Woods Hole, Massachusetts, and re- 
ceived her PhD in Biology at Johns Hopkins Uni- 
versity, Baltimore, Maryland. She has held faculty 
positions at the University of Pennsylvania Medi- 
cal School, The University of Illinois Medical 
School, and here at Stritch. Dr. LaVelle has twice 
held the position of Acting Chairman of Anatomy, 
and since 1985 has been a full professor of Anato- 
my at Loyola. In recognition of her excellent 
teaching. Dr. LaVelle has recieved at least ten 
"Teacher of the Year" awards, nine of those from 
Loyola medical students. Apart from her teaching 
and research interests. Dr. LaVelle has served on 
more than twenty University committees, includ- 
ing a thirteen year stint on the Admissions Com- 
mittee. Dr. LaVella has also been very involved in 
activities outside of academics, including two 
years as National President of the Camp Fire Girls, 
during which time she was commended by Presi- 
dent Reagan. 

We all fondly remember Dr. LaVelle's firm but 
fair and understanding manner as we look back on 
our Histology experience. We learned a sense of 
confidence under Dr. LaVelle, a feeling so rarely 
found in medical school. We know that Dr. LaV- 
elle has great plans for her retirement, and our 
class wishes her the very best. 

Thank you Dr. LaVelle, and good luck! 


Dr. CCC O'Morchoe, born in India, 
received his numerous degrees from 
Trinity College, Dublin University School 
of Medicine, Dublin, Ireland. He did a ro- 
tating internship in England and was then 
appointed as a faculty member at Dublin 
University lecturing and doing research in 
Anatomy and Physiology. Dr. O'Morchoe 
then did Fellowships at the University of 
Maryland and Harvard Medical Schools 
(one year each), teaching Anatomy and 
Physiology and participating in research. 
He then returned to Dublin University to 
become an Associate Professor of Physiol- 
ogy. During this time he spent three 
months as a World Health Organization 
Consultant on medical education in Jai- 
pur, India. Dr. O'Morchoe then returned 
to the United States as a faculty member 
of the University of Maryland. Again, he 
returned to India for three months as a 
Consultant for the W.H.O. For three years 
(as full professor) he was Acting Chairman 
of Anatomy at the University of Maryland. 
In 1974, he was appointed Chairman of 
the Department of Anatomy at Loyola 
University of Chicago. Dr. O'Morchoe's 
excellent teaching abilities and research 
activities have been rewarded by six 
teacher of the year awards including the 
1982 Outstanding Faculty of the Year for 
Loyola University. In 1984, he was made 
a member of Alpha Omega Alpha. Dr. 
O'Morchoe is currently a Professor of An- 
atomical Sciences and of Surgery, Senior 
Associate Dean, and Director of the Uni- 
versity of Illinois College of Medicine at 

May 1984 represented the end of 
10 years of the "O'Morchoe" influ- 
ence on Loyola University medical 
students. At the end of our freshman 
year. Dr. CCC O'Morchoe (Chairman, 
Department of Anatomy) and PJ 
O'Morchoe (Anatomy/Pathology) 
moved on to new positionsat the Uni- 
versity of Illinois at Urbana-Cham- 
paign. The O'Morchoes were excel- 
lent teachers who had a real art for 
making the impossible sound easy. 
Their accents were refreshing and 
easy to comprehend, unlike those of 

others who lectured to us. The many 
Loyola medical students who follow 
us will not learn how to "properly" 
pronounce certain anatomical terms 
such as "capill'ary" instead of 
"cap'illary" or "cervi'cal" instead of 
"cervical". Our class in particlar de- 
veloped a very special relationship 
with the O'Morchoes - they were 
more a part of our family than just our 

Doctors CCC 


Dr. O'Morchoe, born in England, 
received her degrees from Trinity 
College, Dublin University School of 
Medicine. She did a rotating intern- 
ship in England and was then appoint- 
ed to the faculty at Dublin University 
School of Medicine in the Depart- 
ment of Physiology. Dr. O'Morchoe 
did a Fellowship in Cytopathology at 
John Hopkins followed by a year in 
the Departments of Pathology and 
Surgery at Harvard Medical School at 
the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital. Five 
years later, she became a faculty 

member of both John Hopkins Uni- 
versity School of Medicine (Patholo- 
gy) and the University of Maryland 
School of Medicine (Anatomy). After 
moving to Chicago, she held a joint 
appointment in the Departments of 
Pathology and Anatomy at Loyola. She 
has served on various University com- 
mittees and has given many guest lec- 
tures and workshops throughout the 
country. Her excellent teaching was 
rewarded most recently when she re- 
ceived the 1985 Raymond B. Allen 
(Golden Apple) Instructorship Award 

from the University of Illinois College 
of Medicine. She is currently a Full 
Professor of Pathology and Acting 
Head of the Department of Anatomi- 
cal Sciences at the University of Illi- 
nois College of Medicine at Urbana- 
Champaign. She is also on the staff of 
Mercy and Burnham Hospitals in Ur- 
bana-Champaign and the V A Medical 
Center in Danville.

Congratulations and Best Wishes 

to the Class of 1987 from the 

Administration, Faculty and 

Alumni Relations Department of 

Loyola University of Chicago 

Stritch School of Medicine 

The success of the 1987 Cadu- 
ceus depended in large part on 
the contributions from students 
and the administration. In particular, 
I would like to thank the following: 

— The staff of the Caduceus, for the long hours of editing and cropping, 
and for helping with the unpleasant job of squeezing half-pages from the 

— The authors of individual sections of the book: Dave O'Morchoe, Mark 
Bates, Joe Blonski, Randy McCool, and John Stevenson. 

— Mike Maguire, for modeling some pretty outrageous outfits. 

— Cathy Harris, Vick Mokarry, Barry Goldberg, Ron Szyjkowski, and Bob 
Tripp, for supplying the material for the Underclassmen section. 

— Robert Vick and the staff of Medical Photography, for supplying the fac- 
ulty portraits. 

— Mike Lambesis, for his patience and technical assistance, his skillful poli- 
ticking, and for the self-control he exhibited while reviewing our proofs. 

— Rob Moorhead, our Walsworth representative, for his advice and dedica- 

— Dr. Roque Pifarre, for being the largest financial contributor to this pub- 

— The students who submitted half-pages, for ensuring that this yearbook 
truly represented the entire class, rather than a few individuals. 

— The Press Department of NBC News in New York, for supplying informa- 
tion about Tom Brokaw. The quote on page 137 of this book is taken from a 
documentary hosted by Mr. Brokaw entitled "To Be a Doctor," copyright 
1981, NBC-New York. 

— Dr. Anthony Barbato, for allowing this publication to take place. 

— Frank Bourget, Director of Medical Alumni Relations, for coming to the 
rescue in our time of need. 

i hope that the input from these 
and other individuals made the 1987 
Caduceus a unique and varied work 
that will help you to recall some of the 
positive aspects of our four-year 
struggle at Loyola. Please use it to help 
you remember the challenges we met 
during our medical school careers, 
the relationships we formed, and the 
goals we achieved and surpassed.
