Sharing Pearls for Teaching & Learning!

Richard Wahl, MD, Director, Adolescent Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, and Karen Spear Ellinwood, PhD, JD, EdS, Director, Instructional Development, are collecting "pearls" from our physician educators to share with residents. 

We asked them to share pearls to assist residents in teaching our medical students as well as pearls for becoming excellent physicians. Below are some of those pearls.

This project began in June 2018. As we collect more pearls we will share them here. If you are a physician teaching at UA CoM-Tucson, share your pearls!

Pearls for Teaching

  • Pick one simple subject each day to discuss, and not try to cover too much.

Pearls for Learning

  • From a patient you see that day, pick a topic and read about it for 15 min.
