Katie Watson has been teaching this popular course to first year medical students since 2002.  In 2013 she and Belinda Fu, M.D., launched the first Medical Improv “Train the Trainer” course intensive for medical professionals.  I am honored to have been a participant in that class, and understand the wonderful gift this program can be for improving communication and collaboration in our medical and healthcare communities.
