After reading Chapter 2, how did Dr. Fitzgerald go about determining her diagnosis? What mistake did she make? Why do you think happened? Was this a realistic scenario?
Alternative chapter 2 prompt:
At the end of chapter 2, we hear about a new program for Yale's students on their first day, and Dr. Angoff mentions a bridge of education. Please reflect on these questions:
- How is your College Prep education changing you? What bridge are you crossing now?
- How do you expect your university experience will change you? How is that bridge similar and different to the one you are crossing now? Which is more significant?
- What important aspects of you do you want to hold onto?
- As you think about potential careers, are there others (besides medicine) that cause a similar division between the practitioners and those they serve?
- What are the costs & benefits of these divisions?
