Patient as Teacher

Patient as Teacher is a new and exciting program that integrates humanistic and patient-centred approaches into undergraduate surgical education. As the program name suggests: patients become the teachers. Previous patients volunteer their time to share their experiences and insights with medical students. In turn, students learn about the surgical journey from the perspectives of patients. Our goal is to contribute to the learning and practice of compassionate and socially responsible care.
