Professional Background

All learners need an environment where they can safely explore the limits of their knowledge. My fundamental approach is based in granting autonomy for making medical decision at a level appropriate to a learner’s training. I firmly believe and have seen that some of the most remarkable developments in a learner’s development is when they are encouraged to take responsibility for the decisions they make.

In a collaborative environment, my goal as an educator is to facilitate discussion and exploration, focusing on teaching clinical reasoning skills.

As all learning requires investigation, and I see one of my main roles as an educator is in teaching learners where to obtain access to the best medical evidence. Good answers require good questions, and I think it’s essential to teach how to ask good questions.

Remaining teachable is essential to lifelong learning and maintaining a posture of humility as an educator allows a better learning environment and facilitates my own professional development, in addition to demonstrating this behavior for my learners.

Teaching requires modelling, and in medicine specifically, the need for mentorship and models of professionalism are essential.
