Dartmouth program sets a standard

I have previously expressed my admiration for the actions of Dr. Jim Yong Kim, President of Dartmouth, in creating a new degree program focused on process improvement in the heath care delivery system.  That program is doing very well.  I wish other universities would follow this path.

As an example of the scope of interest and diversity of the student body, here's a video from U.S. Navy Commander Matt Grimes in which he explains how he will use lessons from Dartmouth in his work trying to reduce costs as Navy medicine carries out its mission.
