Patient as Teacher is a new and exciting program started by Dr. Jory Simpson, which 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. For more on the Patient as Teacher program, click here.

AERO is supporting evaluative and exploratory research on the impacts and mechanisms of patient as teacher programs.
