Carving Your Path as a Clinical Educator with Limited Resources: A Panel Discussion with Clinical Educators for Clinical Educators

Wednesday, June 4, 12-1pm - Chestnut 5 (Refreshments provided)

During Academic Week, you'll have a chance to hear from Baystate educators who continue to forge paths for development and scholarship even despite limited time and funds. Attend this event to hear their advice or share your own!

In the meantime, get to know our panelists and some of their advice for succeeding as a clinician educator...


"I think the best advice I ever got was 'The time is always right to do what is right.'"


"Best advice that I ever got but did not take was to 'find a niche and become an expert.'   Best advice that I give and take is to 'Always do what is best for the patients, don’t forget that.'”


"Best advice I ever got; given to me: 'Trust yet Confirm.'  Best advice I ever got; given to an audience that I attended: 'You should never be arrogant or self-righteous in titling yourself as anything other than a student, you are always and forever a student if you are to succeed in life; let others who are more qualified than you refer to you by a “title” but you proudly refer to yourself as a student' – Barry Moser, Commencement Speaker at Williston Northampton High School Graduation, May 2014"


"The best advice I ever got was that you create your own opportunites. Also, accept feedback but not rejection."
