Teachers for a New Era


Challenge #1--Focusing on Outcomes

“Society reaps at this moment but a small fraction

of the advantage which current knowledge

has the power to confer.”

Abraham Flexner (1910)

[Bulletin No. 4, Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching]


Challenge #2--Fostering Collaboration

“Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.”

Mark Twain


Challenge #3-Building Capacity

First Doctor: “I’ve forgotten all my science: what’s the use of my pretending I haven’t? But I have great experience: clinical experience; and bedside experience is the main thing, isn't it?”

Second Doctor: “Mere experience by itself is nothing. If I take my dog to the bedside with me, he sees what I see. But he learns nothing from it. Why? Because he's not a scientific dog.”

Max Weber, Science as a Vocation

Keep the focus on outcomes

“In the end the final test of a medical school

is its outcome in the matter of clinicians.”

Abraham Flexner (1910)
