Dear fellow alumni and friends of GW,
The opportunity to become a physician in the special tradition unique to GW changed my life. The approach to class composition, learning, and the diverse clinical settings in which we trained have sustained me with confidence and altruism through a nearly 40-year career. To be a physician is an incredible privilege, and being in a position to help improve the lives of our patients, communities, and society is more fulfilling for me than any other endeavor could have afforded. It is with that attitude that we need to think about how we can sustain the values and qualities of the profession, and support those willing and ready to follow their hearts and dreams to become doctors.
