When we dedicate ourselves to excellence in medical education, we help vast numbers of patients that we will  never meet.

The Hippocratic Oath begins with: “I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.” Physicians have all pledged to do whatever they can to help patients. When we dedicate ourselves to excellence in medical education, we help vast numbers of patients that we will  never meet. The impact of this effort is far greater than what we can do for patients directly.
