Not sure about your skill level but how about something like a prescription pad with "good-bye we'll miss you" and orders to "spread the word/teach" or something like that.... Or you could do something where the stethescope is being traded in for a pointer (or something that symbolizes teaching.) Obviously my ideas are not flushed out, but hopefully it will get your creative juices flowing...
