Joseph Joubert once said, "To teach is to learn twice over." What he knew 200 years ago has been shown to be true in research on adult learning.
Often the most effective way to really learn something, is to be in a position to teach it.
Our Senior Prep embodies this principle. A week before the interns and students have their Academic Half Day, the senior residents have Senior Prep on the Academic Half Day topic. Senior residents then spend the next week teaching their teams this topic.
