Cambridge’s executive team member recently returned from the Lourdes, France pilgrimage with great admiration for the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and it’s approach with caring for the sick. The Cambridge executive joined in with nearly 7,000 Knights and Dames of the Order of Malta to help and care for malades (“the sick” in French).
The Lourdes trip’s takeaways were strong! The educational benefits are being shared with all of Cambridge’s program directors and faculty members to share these leadership techniques with the student population. Cambridge’s leadership wants an overall understand of how to lead young healthcare professionals into being great and caring people.
This humbling experience of caring of others (the malades) is an important focus for Cambridge’s student-centered culture.
The Order’s doctors and medical staff come from various backgrounds including internal medicine, radiology oncology, radiation therapy, registered nurses, licensed nursing practitioners and other healthcare related professionals.
This type of trip to Lourdes is a core example of how Cambridge’s culture embraces helping others. Giving back is a centerpiece of our leadership teachings and is part of the underlying values and foundation.
