“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Code Blue, room 701! I jump to my feet and run. Racing to save a life, a life that I don't know. The adrenaline is rushing. Yelling "Charging... clear!" I thought I had found my calling, until now.

HBS has helped me envision how the connection between business and medicine can bring changes to the world. Changes that inspire me to grow beyond my profession, to impact not only an individual's life, but millions worldwide. As a doctor, I am about to make this happen!

This vision is daunting. Health care evolution has been taking baby steps, and there's a dire need for a leap in transformation. With the blessing of a Harvard education, I feel prepared to take bigger strides to achieve greater feats. I will take a leading role to tackle the seemingly insurmountable problems plaguing the health care system in our country and other parts of the world. I know I am no hero, but the Hippocratic oath that I solemnly swore reminds me of the power of knowledge I now possess to make broader social change.

The adrenaline is rushing. I am ready to jump to my feet and run again!
