PCOM's 124th Commencement was held on Sunday, June 7, 2015 at the Kimmel Center, Broad and Spruce Streets in Philadelphia, Pa.

Honorary degree recipient John W. Becher, DO ’70, delivered the Commencement address. "Now is the time to demonstrate your ability to lead," he told the graduates. Dr. Becher is president-elect of the American Osteopathic Association and has been chairman and professor of the Department of Emergency Medicine at PCOM since 1981.

The event also marked the first time PCOM President and CEO Jay S. Feldstein, DO ’81, presided over the Philadelphia campus’s DO ceremony. In his remarks, he expressed his hope for the class of 2015. "You will all be much more than a physician,” he said.
