About Reflective MedEd

Reflective MedEd is dedicated to reflective practice in medical education and care of the person. We publish contributions that offer insight and illumination into the experience of educating the next generation of physicians. We welcome the thoughts of educators, patients, and all who foster awareness of the human dimension of doctoring and develop advocates for the just and equitable treatment of all patients. This blog seeks to support and nurture the soul of medical education in an age all too often dominated by mere quantification.

Reflective MedEd is supported by the Ralph P. Leischner, Jr., MD, Department of Medical Education at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.  The department’s mission is to promote medical education consonant with the values of a Jesuit medical education, particularly social justice and a concern for marginalized and vulnerable populations, the role of faith in medical practice, and ethical standards of decision making. Reflections on these and related topics will find a home @ReflectiveMedEd.
