I love that the goal of UCSD is to provide cutting edge medicine but still focus on what healthcare really is: caring, and it comes from the heart. It’s something that is evident in all the actions that we do everyday. As a nurse for 24 years, this is the only place I have felt this way. That speaks volumes.Princess 9 years of Service
