Editor's Note


This issue of SGU Gold contains a diverse collection of stories and essays from SGU students from each year of medical school. Some just completed their first term. Others are applying for residency and attending interviews.

Also included here is a special section containing the results of an SGU GHHS chapter project titled "At the Bedside" which features selections exclusively written by basic sciences students who embody the humanistic principles endemic to the organization's mission and goals.

A number of individuals contribute to the creation of each issue of SGU Gold, notably Dr. Stephen Weitzman, Dean of the School of Medicine, and Cheryl Macpherson, PhD, Professor & Chair, Bioethics Dept and Faculty Advisor for SGU's GHHS chapter. With regard to this issue specifically, MSII Jasmin Singh was very helpful in doing some preliminary editing on some of the selections. Jonathan Hill, also an MSII, provided me with the "At the Bedside" selections.

Best Wishes for an Outstanding New Year!
