Understanding Learners

  • Richard B. Gunderman


If learners are to perform at their best and become the best physicians they are capable of being, it is important that we help them develop a clear vision of excellence in learning. Whether they be medical students, residents, fellows, or even practicing physicians participating in continuing medical education programs, we need to help them to see their target clearly if they are to hit it. In the case of medical students and residents, it is vital that no one regard their tenure in the training program as a period of indentured servitude, something that must be merely endured. Instead, learners gain more when they see their program as a learning opportunity designed to help them excel as learners.
