“I am the doctor and human I am today in large part because of amazing clinician educator role models and mentors during training. Great teachers have the power to inspire and to change the lives of both learners and patients alike. That remains my aspirational goal and the reason why I teach.”– Yihan Yang, MD, MHS-MedEd
“I teach because learning, like laughter, is infectious. When a group of learners collectively have a learning breakthrough, it brings a unique sense of warmth and positive energy to the room.”– Jonathan Wisor, PhD
“I enjoy teaching because it makes me a better physician and a better educator. I also enjoy being challenged by inquisitive learners on topics that might not be in my area of expertise.”– Lonika Sood, MD, MHPE, FACP, FHM
“I teach to empower students, build rapport, and cultivate mutual respect in the classroom and beyond. I view each cohort as a community of learners with unique, individualized backgrounds, cultures, and experiences from whom I immensely enjoy learning from and growing in my own knowledge as a teacher and person. My guiding principles are to encourage and help foster self-efficacy and embrace student success, while offering informed and practical content from a “real-world” perspective.”– April D Davis, MS, RDN, CDN, ACSM-RCEP
