What To Get The Person Of The Noblest Profession: 27 Graduation Gifts For Medical Students
There are few holidays in life that are truly once in a lifetime. Graduation is just such a day. And if we are talking about a medical graduate, the specifics of the gift come to the fore, because graduating from medical school is very hard, even with the support of moms, dads and all family members. These are years of hard work, a sea of assimilated knowledge and a great desire to help people. And so the graduation gift for a doctor, still so young, but already such a selfless person, should really be perfect, and even unique.
Should a medical graduation gift be something professional that a young doctor could use in his or her future activities? Or something that would remind them of their years of study and make them proud of themselves and their accomplishments. Or maybe, on the contrary, give them something to relax, smile and feel not only like a doctor, but also just a happy person?
But whatever you choose - a gift for graduation from residency, college or medical school - we advise you to make it as personalized as possible. So the future doctor will understand that when preparing a gift, you were thinking about them, your favorite medical graduate.
Our small list has a variety of gift ideas - from silly little things to modern gadgets, from useful home accessories to fun souvenirs, from special memorabilia to custom made items.
An excellent gift for a future doctor would be a quality modern stethoscope, their main working tool. Surely in their student days they already had this device, but it is unlikely it was some special model. Now there is a great excuse to please the graduate, so do not miss it - buy this expensive, but so necessary in their future career thing. Especially since the yesterday's students themselves are unlikely to have money for such a serious purchase in the near future.
2. Graduation photo plaque
The beginning of the career has been made, the first part of the arduous journey has passed. The goals that the student set for themself in the first days of study seemed unattainable, but now the diploma of graduation in their pocket and about this they will always remember. And to remind them about their achievements and successes will be able to name the frame with their parade photo from the graduation ceremony. A unique gift for someone who decided to devote their life to nursing.
3. Photo collage
You can spend time on the ice either during the winter months or by visiting the stadium. But what if the hockey fan has no time and winter is over? Give him one of the many table hockey models so that he does not remain without his favorite activity for several months of the year.
And a tea party, to which you can present a set of chocolate in the form of a stick and a puck will help to brighten up the absence of real snow.
4. Mug with photo
A mug and a picture of a former medical student in a gown or a new medical robe will be able to cheer up a young doctor in the morning before the day shift or after a busy night duty. A perfect and positive gift for those who are going to practice any kind of medicine.
5. Professional lab coat.
Speaking of lab coats? Are you sure the young doctor you love and are so proud of is fully equipped? And even if the graduate already has medical attire, a spare white professional gown with handy pockets won't be unnecessary. An excellent gift for a representative of one of the noblest and most respected professions in the world. It only remains to place a nametag on their chest - and the doctor is ready!
The universal symbol of all medics, whether it's a famous doctor or a novice nurse - a stethoscope. Female representatives, who proudly bear the title of a medical worker, will be happy to receive a chain with a stethoscope pendant or an elegant necklace with a symbol of DNA or human pulse. Such jewelry will look great at work and in their spare time away from duty and professional worries.
7. Coffee Maker
Few people in the world can boast as much coffee drinking as members of the medical profession. Strenuous work during the day and night vigils at patients' bedsides with the concern for their health leaves doctors no choice. To keep the body in working order, doctors simply need to take regular heavy doses of caffeine. Since they have no time to brew coffee in a carafe and the instant drink is not very refreshing, give the future doctor a modern model of coffee machine as a present. It can be used to make the regular Americano, as well as a variety of flavored coffee drinks.
8. Coffee Set
Coffee, coffee, coffee... Mug after mug, day after day... Just in the company of the above coffee machine a set of a variety of high-end coffees would be a great gift. Help your beloved graduate withstand the stressful pace of work, especially at the beginning of his or her medical career.
9. Thermo mug
Another addition to the previous two ideas would be a great gift in the form of a thermo mug. The doctor's profession does require long hours of hard work without sleep or rest. This is especially true for those who work in emergency rooms, deliveries, or stand for hours at the surgical table in the operating room. Often the doctor does not have time to enjoy their favorite drink in peace, another call - and here is a cup of coffee is already set aside. Don't let the invigorating drink get cold, give the doctor or nurse a heat preserving vessel, let the coffee stay as hot as your love.
10. Comfortable and stylish bag
A wide shoulder strap and plenty of pockets for plenty of essentials would make a useful gift. It will successfully hold medical instruments, a laptop, notepads and pens, and other useful items that a young doctor may need at any time. Such an accessory will be comfortable for any style of clothing as it is presented in a wide range of colors and styles.
So beloved from the TV series, a medical uniform - scrub - will add elegance and dignity to your familiar graduate. Convenient pockets will quite accommodate a small notebook for notes and a few pens, and a stethoscope will complete the image of a modern and stylish medical front worker. Such a gift will undoubtedly give pleasure to the future doctor.
Has your favorite medical graduate decided to dedicate himself to science? Then they will partly have to go to specialized congresses and conferences. It is customary to appear at such events not in a medical uniform; a three-piece suit will be more appropriate, which is more likely to be accompanied by a portfolio bag, rather than a shoulder model.
The new doctor's life and professional activity will be very intense. A modern watch model of a famous brand will be able to track everything important to the body - oxygen content in the blood, heart rate, blood pressure and time of actual sleep, as well as stay in touch with all the people who play an important role in their life. Help your young professional stay in control of their life and health with this amazing little device. In addition, the stylish design of the watch will seamlessly complement the graduate's image, giving them dignity and self-confidence.
14. Work shoes
Of course, this pair of shoes will not look cool and sexy, but it will make the working day of the doctor or nurse comfortable and will protect their feet from excessive fatigue and blisters, because to spend the day and night on their feet - not the easiest thing in life. And in the profession of a doctor, as we know, it is inevitable.
15. A graceful frame
When your favorite graduate becomes a well-known professional in the medical community - a practicing physician or a big-name scientist - he or she will have his or her own office. There, on one of the walls will be hung their certificates and diplomas and beautiful frames. Start collecting this professional collection right now and give the yesterday's student their first elegant frame in which they’ll be proud to include their graduation diploma.
16. Stylish personalized pen
A graduate just needs a stylish personalized pen with which they can write vital appointments for their patients as well as autograph their own scientific articles and books with dignity.
A young professional badly needs to record their observations, advice and recommendations of older colleagues, names of books and scientific works that are yet to be mastered, and much more. Give them a stylish leather notebook for notes, such a gift will not leave them indifferent and will become a real helper for daily activities.
A doctor deals with a large number of various papers daily. Give them a stand organizer, which is convenient to store pencils, erasers, pens, paper clips and other small things, so necessary in the laborious paperwork. Now, with just a little time spent sorting, the doctor will quickly clear his desk.
19. Massage Cushion
It's hard for doctors to find time to monitor their own health. What's more, even half an hour for a massage session is not always possible. Help them solve this problem and them him a home massager, which is quite possible to use during a short break between shifts or at the end of a long working day. Perfect for relieving muscle pain due to lack of sleep or relieving stress after working with a difficult patient or procedure.
20. Compression socks
Give a busy young professional a gift of cozy and fun compression socks, not only will they make their day a little easier, but they will also bring a smile, and it's so important to have a reason to smile in the middle of the work day.
Phones and other electronic devices have a habit of running out of power at the most inopportune moment. Being out of touch is unpleasant for anyone, and if it happens to a practicing doctor, it is also dangerous. To help your doctor avoid this kind of trouble, give them a power bank - an external battery that can help and recharge your smartphone at any time.
22. The Hippocratic Oath
The ideal gift for a certified doctor would be the Hippocratic Oath, which has been taken by this noble profession for centuries. Let the gift help your medical graduate resist all temptations that somehow get in his way.
23. A gift set with a miniature Hippocrates book
Such a spectacular gift will take a worthy place in any interior. The name of the great doctor means a lot to anyone who has connected their life with medicine.
24. A book of proverbs
A chic gift edition of a book with famous sayings of great doctors will be not only interesting, but also useful for yesterday's medical student.
Doctors often have to carry around piles of papers and documents - lectures, presentations, teaching aids and more. Make a doctor's burden a little easier and give them a gift of an electronic drive that can hold all the information he needs. And to reduce the chance of losing such a useful thing, have it engraved with the owner's name, regalia and contacts.
26. Favorite music
For those rare moments when a young doctor can relax and unwind, they can enjoy listening to a selection of their favorite music or nature sounds that you gave them on their graduation day.
27. Custom Portrait
To show your graduate how proud you are of their accomplishments, and at the same time bring a smile of contrition to their face, you can give the young doctor a custom-made portrait of their pet in medical gown.
Choosing good gifts is sometimes not easy, but always enjoyable. Remember that when you give a medical student a graduation gift, you are not only showing them your love and support, but also acknowledging that they are worthy of the title of doctor. Such recognition is very dear to the person, especially if he or she is just beginning his or her professional career.
