Ankur Segon, MD
M4 General Medicine Acting Internship Director               Assistant Professor,     General Internal Medicine - Hospitalist Program         

 

Dr. Segon joined the MCW faculty in 2008 as a physician in our Hospitalist Program.  In 2011, he assumed the role of Course Director for the M4 General Medicine Acting Internship.  He finds interactions with medical students and residents as a source of enjoyment and satisfaction.  Conversations with keen and receptive minds remind him of the reasons he got into medicine in the first place.  As an educator, he is interested in highlighting the dynamism, intricacies, and rewards of medical problem solving and evidence-based practice.  His focus is on framing facts of medical teaching in a problem-based context that simulates real-life scenarios and highlights impact on patient outcomes.

Dr. Segon believes teaching is more palatable when specific attempts are made to tailor experiences to the learners' level and understanding.  He also believes in backing up teaching by evidence-based medicine to enhance learner receptivity.  For Dr. Segon, it is crucial to cultivate a robust evaluation and feedback system and use it to modify both content and technique as appropriate.  He says, "An involved group of learners that take something away from a teaching module or sessions is a source of satisfaction for me; if they also start to reflect on critical thinking and evidence-based medicine, it makes my day all the more rewarding and fulfilling."

Lennon Endowed Clinical Teaching Award, both in 2011.

Dr. Stoner's teaching philosophy is best expressed through a quote from William Athur Ward, "The mediocre teacher tells.  The good teacher explains.  The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires."
