Yesterday was my first day at the inter-professional Patient Safety Summer School for medical, nursing, and pharmacy students. I echo the conclusion (by Kim Oates) that the future is brighter. As I listened to the students reflect on what they were learning, it was inspirational. They will reshape healthcare to be safer, more effective, and more affordable. I felt a renewed sense of urgency to spread and sustain this exemplary model for preparing future health professionals. Thank you to David, Tim, Kathy, Gwen and the entire faculty team for creating this exemplary program, and to The Doctors Company Foundation for providing the student scholarships. Brilliant idea!
