We agree completely with Dr. Sandroni. Indeed, programs to teach teachers [1, 2] have been described in the past, and promotion guidelines for clinician-teachers have recently been published . These programs and guidelines must be more widely used. This requires a commitment of resources on the part of departments of medicine.
A more difficult question is why teachers are teaching poorly. Was it always this way? If not, what has happened to change the manner of teaching? Given the harsh comments of our students, it would be hard to support the notion that it is just the tolerance of the students that has changed! We need to find out whether career dissatisfaction is spilling over into the learning climate.
