It is a privilege to be able to share knowledge and, perhaps more importantly, to inspire others to actively engage in the learning process.

Teaching has always been a source of deep satisfaction and inspiration to me. It is a privilege to be able to share knowledge and, perhaps more importantly, to inspire others to actively engage in the learning process. This takes on special significance for me when I remember that those individuals that I have the privilege of teaching are those who will provide medical care for other human beings. The benefits of teaching are reciprocal, in that teaching, more than any other activity, inspires me to remain a life-long learner.
