The leadership of New York Medical College recognized Dr. Copperman’s contributions to the field of medicine since being graduated in 1989.

In his acceptance speech, Dr. Copperman shared his appreciation for his teachers and role models. He discussed what a privilege it is to be given the opportunity to use science and compassion to help couples trying to build their families, and encouraged the graduating medical students to deliver attentive care to the patients in front of them while thinking broadly about the opportunities to use their medical knowledge to better the health of the community.
