Archmere Physicians’ Society

We are proud to introduce the Archmere Physicians’ Society. Formed in 2017, the primary focus of the society is to create a resource for Archmere students and young alumni interested in pursuing a career in the field of medicine. Members will also have the opportunity to build and foster relationships with fellow physicians associated with Archmere Academy.

As a thank you, we invite Society members to join us for our inaugural reception on Tuesday June 13, 2017 in The Patio at Archmere Academy.  Our featured speaker will be Dr. Louis Bartoshesky ’62.

  • The Passing of Mark Dombroski ’17

    It is with great sadness that we inform you of the loss of a dear friend and recent graduate, Mark Dombroski ’17. Mark died while on a rugby tour in Bermuda with St. Joseph’s University. We extend our deepest sympathies to the Dombroski family along with Mark’s friends and classmates. The circumstances of Mark’s death are still under investigation by the authorities.
    The school community gathered in prayer Monday afternoon in the Oratory and again for a Memorial Mass Tuesday morning. During the Mass, we sang If I Could Just Sit With You Awhile by Martin Doman:
    Lord I need you now more than I know how
    So I humbly bow hidden in You.
    If I could just sit with You awhile
    If you could just hold me
    Nothing could touch me,
    Though I’m wounded, though I die
    If I could just sit with you awhile
    I need you to hold me
    Moment by moment til forever passes by.
    As more details emerge, we will inform the Archmere community about services. During this difficult time, we ask for your understanding and that you respect the privacy of Mark’s family and friends.
    Please keep the Dombroski family in your prayers.
