I arrived at the medical profession by a bit of a circuitous route, which began because of a teacher’s impact on me many years ago. 

I believe that teaching is mainly about facilitating learning and helping learners to frame questions, concepts and information. The details and the answers are constantly changing, but the approach to learning and the ability to acquire knowledge and skills will prepare a learner for a successful career.
