On Saturday January 23rd, The Healers of Tomorrow took a campus visit to the University of Washington. Despite the pouring day, the visit was an exciting one where the students discovered the major components of the enormous campus. We started off in the Health Science building where we visited the health professional schools UW offers. This included the UW School of Medicine, School of Nursing, and School of Public Health. We also visited the classrooms that medical and dental students use for their lectures. One of my favorite moments of the tour is when the students saw a picture of the incoming first year medical students and noticed the lack of representation of their ethnic group in the image. I think they understood how much they are needed in whatever profession they choose as their future career.
We then explored the main sites of the UW campus. The Suzzalo Library was the students favorite, particularly the Reading Room (aka Harry Potter room). We also checked out the famous UW Quad where the cherry blossoms bloom during Spring and Summer seasons. Our last stop was Odegaard Library where most incoming undergraduate students spend majority of their time researching and studying.
The Healers of Tomorrow are a group of bright and energetic students who are excited to experience the world of UW. The day was filled with so much laughter and walking; I enjoyed getting to know each and every one of the students. This opportunity personally inspired me and made me reflect on the power of mentorship.
