They are bright and intelligent. They are energetic and creative,” said Greenawald. “They really want to make a difference, not only with the school, but in all aspects of their lives. It is very exciting to be part of that energy.”
When I started as dean three-and-a-half years ago, I envisioned the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine as a new kind of medical school where patients were at the forefront of every aspect of the school. It is wonderful to see the results put forth by many – from the construction workers who built the school brick-by-brick, to the leadership, the faculty, and the staff who had the vision, the drive, and the commitment to excellence to execute a well-laid plan. Our charter class of students, with their own vision and entrepreneurial spirit, partnered with us to bring VTC to reality as an educational institution. They are well along on their journey to becoming physician thought leaders. I celebrate all of these trailblazers, for the first time is almost always the most difficult. Indeed, the journey of a thousand miles does truly begin with the first step.
