This past weekend we brought our son to a student acceptance day at a college he is considering attending.
As we participated in the numerous events of the day I was struck by the similarities between academia and healthcare, i.e., colleges and hospitals.
We began the day with hundreds of other students and parents listening to the opening presentation, where much focus was placed on sharing the history, mission, good works and values of the school. The pride of the president, admissions director and other organization leaders was clear. And each made note of how they instill these values in each student of this prestigious school.
