Mahendra Patel, President and CEO
We receive several letters from students who are studying medicine at our various campuses in Europe. Many of the letters are personal in nature, thanking us for the help and support in which we have provided on our campuses. Other letters are written by students who just want to express their viewpoints and describe their experiences while in medical school and in the country in which they are studying. Some of these letters are very emotional and heartfelt, while others are simply informative in nature.
We are very proud of the quality of our students and their commitment to the pursuit of their lifelong dream of becoming good physicians. It is very fulfilling and rewarding for us to see a student march toward his or her goal day by day, month by month and year by year. Many times, it seems as though it happened just yesterday when a student began medical school, and the next thing we realize is that it is time for that student to graduate from medical school. For us, it is a very exhilarating experience to see students reaching the finish line. It is a similar feeling to that of which an experienced coach has about his or her athletes' achievements during the drive for a gold medal in the Olympics. Our students are like those dedicated, hard working champions of sports, who strive for excellence in their quest to win a medal.
Our students leave the shore and their families behind in pursuit of their dream, and time again they prove that one has to leave the old shore in order to reach a new shore. We believe they are the Columbuses of the modern world. When they put their experiences into words, they take us through the journey of their chosen land. We thought perhaps you may be interested in some of the experiences of our "Olympians" in the field of medicine.
