Congratulatory messages for Fall Graduates

“You have managed to complete the MHA program – which is already challenging and complex – during a pandemic when your work and lives have been so impacted. Your resilience and commitment demonstrate that you are going to continue to grow as leaders in our health care system – and I can’t think of better group to take this challenge on. Congratulations to our MHA Class of 2021”

Dr. Nick Bansback
MHA Program Director

“To all our MSc and PhD graduates,
Hat’s off to you! SPPH is very proud of your accomplishments in completing your degree. I hope to see some of you on stage (how exciting!) or at the celebrations. I may not be clsad in exactly the right convocation garb given the problems with regalia arriving at UBC in time, but whatever I’m issued I’ll wear it with a big smile. There is nothing like the feeling of walking across that stage to realize that you’ve really done it! And to those who are not able to be at convocation in person, I hope you will find a silly hat to throw up in the air and celebrate your accomplishments! With warmest wishes for your future successes,”

Dr. Susan Cox
MSc & PhD Program Director
