Three Philosphy Notes:

A. In medicine and research, more important than "being right" is knowing how to proceed with those processes that are germane to "getting it right."

B. In addressing the most complex of problems, collaboration will almost always eclipse competition and the work of individuals.

C. Great physicians and educators understand that we rarely experience the magnitude of joy and satisfaction of those things we receive in this life, when compared to those things we give to others. Teaching is but one; albeit a very powerful example of a unique and powerful gift to students, which has the legacy value in that these recipients of learning go on to apply their knowledge in their role of helping others, and are at the same time influenced and transformed into educators themselves, who perpetuate the cycle of exuberance and love for learning and teaching.
