First-year Rush Medical College student Joe Santamaria met up recently with Rush University Medical Center CEO Larry Goodman, MD, for a conversation in the Brennan Entry Pavilion. In the interview, Goodman reflects on his time in medical school and the career path to hospital leadership.
“I never would have thought I would be doing anything other than practicing my entire career,” he says.
This third installment of a video series chronicling Rush University student Joe Santamaria’s first year of medical school shows him donning the clinician’s uniform in the official white coat ceremony.
“Our goal as we literally put the white coat on them is also figurative,” says Paul Kent, MD, an assistant professor of pediatrics, “for them to wear that and feel this new sense that I need to know this, because if I don’t, someone will get hurt. Not because there’s going to be a test on it.”
This is the second in a series of videos featuring Joe Santamaria, a first-year medical student at Rush University. We’ll be checking in on him and sharing video updates throughout the school year.
