Graduates from allopathic or osteopathic medical schools managed their academics successfully and they deserve a reward. Celebrate the fulfilment of the student's dreams with a personalised graduation gift. Your gift can be personalised even if it is very practical. Give an item that the person can treasure while she begins her residency.

Gift Card

Some medical students graduate with significant debt that typically comes from student loans. Medical students typically don't have full time jobs and some need their significant other to stay home to raise the kids. Money is a gift that should be greatly appreciated. Give a personalised gift card to help the graduate pay her bills. Some credit card companies permit you to upload the graduate's photograph and her name as well as a congratulatory message.


Personalised jewellery can be appropriate for a medical school graduation gift. Some men should appreciate engraved cuff links with their initials. Another idea is to purchase a nice wristwatch that you have engraved with the graduate's name and date of graduation. Women might appreciate a nice silver ring engraved with her name and the date of her graduation. Alternatively, purchase a silver charm bracelet that has a medical-themed charm, such as a stethoscope or a caduceus.


A medical school graduate typically needs to own a quality stethoscope. Let the graduate know about your gift ahead of time so she doesn't purchase it herself. Then buy a quality stethoscope from a medical supply store and have it laser engraved with the doctor's name. Alternatively, you can still send the stethoscope in to be engraved if the graduate already purchased it. Personalise the stethoscope head, which means that the tubing might be replaced without harming the engraved area.

Printed Items

Graduates should show professionals their qualifications by having printed items made with M.D. or D.O. after their initials. Business cards are a thoughtful gift that you can have personalised with the person's name and contact information. Also include a quality business card holder for the graduate's desk. Another idea is to give a personalised address stamp for the graduate to use on envelopes. Alternatively, give the graduate personalised address stickers or stationery.
