Longitudinal Program Overview

It is recognized that not all people learn effectively from the same teaching strategy.

This optional Longitudinal RasT Program is designed to further enhance residents’/fellows’ ability to teach medical students, colleagues, staff, and patients by expanding their teaching skills.
