Looking back at the number of oncology fellows and faculty who have participated in  our communication skills and faculty development courses makes me very proud as they have contributed to the culture change in this area by becoming effective teachers of the doctor-patient relationship and developing  their own scholarship.

Assoc Professor, Physical Therapy, School of Health Professions

The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio

Very recently, a student approached me with tears in her eyes. She told me that my latest lecture clarified for her concepts that had confused her for the entire year. It is these private “light bulb” moments that are particularly meaningful in my life as a teacher. This is when I truly feel that what I do makes a difference in someone’s life.

Professor, Family Medicine

The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston

Last year at a conference in San Diego, I met one of my graduate residents from more than 10 years ago who told me, "You are my role model." After graduation, he had studied acupuncture and integrative medicine practices bringing these into his patient care and resident teaching. At this moment, I realized how our teaching efforts can have enormous downstream effects on our learners.
