Mark Goldszmidt is an MD, PhD, who combines active internal medicine clinical practice, medical education research, and education leadership. He also supervises numerous faculty, residents and medical students as they pursue medical education research projects. His own research – influenced by sociomaterial theories and rhetorical genre theory – focuses on the complex relationship between clinical care, supervision and student learning asking questions like: How do a teaching teams’ communication practices shape patient care and student learning? In what way does the supervisory style of the attending physician shape patient care and influence learning? What does excellence look like at the level of a medical student or resident? What do teaching teams reason about during admission case review?
