WELCOME!   About this Blog
Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you're here.
This blog is a non-commercial, voluntary effort. Although I serve as "provocateur-in-chief," I try offering observations that encourage others to join the exchange. I try to keep my entries fairly brief and easily digestible. When a topic needs fuller development I refer to other entries in this blog, or to writing that others or I have done. Throughout this site you will find links that can take you to other parts of this site or to other web sites. Some links take you to a document you can read on-line or download for reading later.
The "posts" (entries) in this blog are meant to stimulate reflection and the exchange of ideas. I consider all my posts to be "works in progress." Although most of them are based on a good deal of thought and, when available, research by myself or others, I regard all my ideas as being in evolution, never as "final." I consider our "conclusions" in medical education, as in all of science, to be tentative, forever subject to the influence of new findings, and new insights. ("A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking." Author unknown)
I encourage your comments and look forward to ongoing, productive exchanges with you and others. For guidance on adding comments to this blog, please see this posting. (You can also reach that post via the FAQs, available in the ever-present menu bar, above.)

    Excellent blog. Today, October 24, 2010 is my first visit ever to your blog. I am so glad I found it. It's like, "Medical Education blog, where have you been my whole life?"

    I shall become a regular visitor.

    Thank you.
