dc.description.abstractIn a healthcare system that is as diverse as it is continuously diversifying, the need to understand our differences and the contexts in which the individual is formed and forming is more important than ever. From the conversation we have with a child on why he has been having trouble getting along with his classmates to perceiving the reason behind the violent outbursts of an elderly patient, communication, both verbal and nonverbal, play a role in piecing together the finer details of a person's history often lost in the bureaucratic operation. It is the growing need for cultural competency, health staff empowerment, and the destabilization of intellectual hegemony that presses us towards remodeling the current healthcare system in which patients face unrecognized social barriers that prevent their optimum care.

dc.description.panabstractThere are countless subspecialties within the field of healthcare, and the five members of our panel each represent a different clinical focus. From research to direct patient care, our panel seeks to introduce viewers to the broad array of opportunities available in the healthcare industry. As we engaged with various facets in the field of medicine this summer, our experiences fostered our growth as undergraduates in ways classroom experiences alone could not. Through our internships, we learned the value of empowered compassion, retaining composure, openness to innovation, and adaptability. Our diverse experiences have reaffirmed the career paths that we hope to pursue after our time at Mount Holyoke.
