Premedical Students Organizations

"Leadership is not the private reserve of a few charismatic men and women. It is a process that ordinary people use when they are bringing forth the best from themselves and others."

This quote is taken from the book, Time to Heal: American Medical Education from the Turn of the Century to the Era of Managed Care, by Kenneth M. Ludmerer.
