The hike today gave me some time to reflect on some of the things that I’ve learned, so I thought I’d share a few quotes that I wrote down during my time in Telluride so far. I appreciate all of the wisdom we have heard.

“It was in the hospital.  The one place we could not get him the medical attention that he needed.”

“If we don’t admit our mistakes, we’re doomed to repeat them again.”

“Be the change you wish to see in the World.”

“This is a calling wrapped around a profession with a service to humanity.”

“Any human system built on the expectation of continued perfect human performance has hard-wired failure into it’s structure.”

The most dangerous statement in medicine… “This is the way we’ve always done it.”
