Lynne M. Kirk, M.D.

Professor Internal Medicine

UT Southwestern Medical Center

My teaching is an extension of the reason I went into medicine: to care for and improve the lives of patients.

My goals are to facilitate students and residents I teach to draw upon and expand their base of scientific knowledge and apply it to the care of their patients.  My ultimate goal is to make them lifelong learners, so they can recognize gaps in their own knowledge and acquire the new knowledge they need in a way that allows them to provide optimal care to their patients over their entire career.
