President Todd Goes to UK "Mini-Med School"
Many of the folks I work with these days look at me with a
blank face when I talk about the movie "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington."
Granted, it did come out even before I was born but I always think of it
when I take the direct flight to DC for UK. Last week, I thought of
that movie (and hence the heading for this blog) when President
Lee Todd, First Lady Patricia Todd, UK Board of Trustee members and
several other VIPs attended UK College of Medicine's Mini Medical School
Class of 2010 - Spring.
This is the second mini-med school and again the feedback was excellent!
