I am swamped now with clients facing early January deadlines so I decided to end 2021 with one of our most popular shows of the year, my interview with Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine’s Senior Associate Dean for Admissions and Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity, Dr. Lindia Wllies-Jacobo.
The Kaiser Permanente School has not yet graduated its first class, but with its tuition-free approach, dedication to social equity, and emphasis on small-group learning, it has an acceptance rate of roughly 1% and is third on Accepted’s medical school selectivity index. It is very hard to get into.
However, in this excellent and very popular interview, Dr. Willies-Jacobo lays out clearly what Kaiser Permanente is looking for.
As we put away or throw out our calendars from 2021 and turn to 2022, I also want to share a few thoughts. When New Years Day comes and goes, some of us ignore the milestone, but many look back – and look forward. Whether your 2021 was a good one or bad one, I hope that AST’s listeners will muster their courage and determination, their positivity and ability, to plan to create a better year, a better future for themselves and the world. To paraphrase Stanford GSB’s motto “Improve lives. Improve organizations. Improve the world.”
Again, thank you for listening to the podcast. I wish you much success in this brand new, exciting year ahead.
Now the interview with Dr. Lindia Willies-Jacobo of Kaiser Permanente Tyson School of Medicine.
