Team and Transparency
As an academic program director, I find incredible encouragement from the strength of my students and faculty. Academic settings do not face the stress of the bedside, but what seems like daily changes in teaching processes and clinical requirements create many challenges. I find comfort in the adaptability of students, who are nervous but flexible, and faculty who have transformed face to face teaching to quality remote learning experiences.
Teamwork is my key to resilience. Sharing feelings, emotions, successes and failures helps me to continue on.
