Students arrive for the Telluride Experience

It’s June in Colorado and so time again for the Telluride Patient Safety Camp experience, now known as The Academy for Emerging Leaders in Patient Safety: The Telluride Experience.  We start this week with medical students and nursing students.  Next week the residents return.

Before the formal sessions started, we began with an ice-breaker in which students were paired with a colleague and then had to provide a synopsis of their partner’s life for the rest of the crowd. Chicago’s Kathy Pischke-Winn, (below left) served as MC as patient advocate Dan Ford looked on. Good humor prevailed.
