Great health care requires great medical educators

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

Great teaching is not a matter of knowledge transfer. Instead it involves a pursuit of knowledge shared by educators and students. Great educators don’t merely tell students what to memorize; they engage their imaginations. They encourage learners to begin asking good questions, which is exactly what good doctors do. This is something that is beginning to be lost in the upper echelons of medical training, and something that must be recovered quickly. Without it, doctors may leave their academic circle with knowledge and practical experience intact, but they will be missing the passion and creativity that inspires the very best medical care.
