Our role as educators has always been to teach  the art and science of medicine. To best serve our patients, we also need to impart knowledge on how to eliminate harm that may reach our patients in this complex health care environment. My passion is teaching health care professionals to fluently embed patient safety and to implement science into their daily practice of medicine to improve health care outcomes.
