'We Get Out There and Do'Thousands of students, resident physicians and faculty members volunteer each year as part of the Rush Community Service Initiatives Programs, which celebrates its 25th anniversary next year.
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.
Patients are like everyone else. They’re funny. They’re real. They have interesting stories to tell. They have sad stories to tell. You develop relationships with them, often, like they’re your friends, or they become your family.
I think there’s no better compliment — that as a physician you can have — when patients refer other patients to you, whether it’s their family members or their coworkers or whoever. And I’m lucky enough to have had that happen several times.
