“I wear a number of different hats in my roles as Associate Program Director and Director of Critical Care. In my academic role I need to emphasize the importance of education for the housestaff, while in my role as Director of ICU my emphasis is on quality of care and patient safety.  Both of these represent two sides of the same coin with housestaff education impacting directly on the ability of the institution to deliver high quality care to the patient, and service to the community in general.”
