Physician, Reveal ThyselfRush has begun including patient survey results in individual physicians' online profiles. It's among few U.S. medical centers, and the only one in the Midwest, to make this information available to potential patients.
Offering Warmth on a Cold January DayRush kicks off its annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, when students from the University's colleges participate in service events on their rare day off.
My experience is that people know a lot about themselves. In fact, they’re the world’s expert on themselves, and I’m not. I’m really a student, and they’re the teacher. Sometimes, though, people don’t find it easy to tell me what would be really ideal for me to know to help them. And so my job is to facilitate that, to try to prompt them with questions to help them to educate me, to provide me with the data. Because it’s from that data that I can get some understanding. And it’s from that understanding that I can give them choices, perspective, options and sometimes even diagnostic labels that may help them — lead them down a path where they can get the kind of treatment or the resources they need to deal with their situation more adaptively and productively.
