Student comments about residents as teachers:
Her energy was contagious. She challenged me to assume the main doctor role for patients, always pushing me to think through things before asking for help. During rounds, she was constantly asking the med students questions, and never in a threatening or hostile manner. She took great care of her patients and provided a wonderful model for a third year med student like myself.
He constantly would weave questions and mini-lectures into work rounds. He would spend his own personal time at night to give more formal lectures on common surgical interventions. He was extremely cordial while always maintaining professionalism. He was diplomatic about criticism even though he would be forthright when mistakes were made.
This website is designed to help residents and fellows become excellent teachers of medical students. It also honors those UVa residents and fellows who are excellent teachers.
