Meeting healthcare students I never fail to be struck by how committed and passionate they are about the work they do. They want to do the best for their patients and provide the highest quality care they can.
We often talk about influencing the workforce of tomorrow, but that misses the point that students are already scattered throughout our healthcare system today. They are therefore in prime position to help bring about positive change. Students are ‘fresh eyes’ on the healthcare system, and often identify opportunities that exist to improve, where colleagues who are so busy already doing the job might miss.
