Institute Faculty

We attribute the success of our program to many factors, but one of the most important is our diverse faculty. Our mentors are not only at the top of their fields clinically and educationally, they are committed to the long-term success of course participants. Often, a mentor relationship is created, enabling participants to be comfortable collaborating on cases well beyond the classroom phase.
