Completing medical school is a huge accomplishment that graduates, as well as their friends and family, ought to be proud of. To celebrate this important milestone, friends and family often present their special graduate with a unique, memorable graduation gift. There are many presents that are sure to impress any future doctor and get him ready for his residency.

Money Holder

After paying off loans, a graduate can look forward to making some money. Celebrate the graduate's financial future with a practical gift that will keep his money safe. A handsome wallet made of fine leather provides an attractive way to hold money. Alternatively, a shiny gold or silver-plated money clip will help keep his cash together. Have the items engraved to make this already unique gift even more special.


Get the future physician excited about her upcoming career with an impressive pen in a lovely case. Browse a stationary shop or jewellery store for fine pens in an assortment of styles and materials, from a dainty silver Tiffany pen to a sleek modern pen in a bold colour. Make the pen extra unique by having it engraved with the graduate's name, alma mater or initials. A beautiful pen is sure to impress the medical school graduate, as well as her future patients, every time she pulls it out to write a prescription.


Now that his medical classes are over, add some class to his wardrobe with some fine-looking accessories. With the variety of cuff links and tie tacks available, find one that fits his unique personality, from one that features a gem in his favourite colour to a distinctively-shaped accessory. Ties are another useful idea that can have a personal touch. For example, surprise a sports fan with a tie that features the colours of his favourite team.


After all her hard work, a medical school graduate may be in need of a good laugh. Lighten the mood with a humorous T-shirt. Many T-shirts acknowledge a graduate's hard work and celebrates her dedication in a lighthearted way. For instance, pick a shirt that says "Medical school survivor" or "You can call me 'doc' for short." Have the graduate's new title (for example, Dr. Smith) embroidered on the sleeve or the back of the shirt.
