They witness

Receiving a trainee in general medicine is a pleasure: to know a future colleague with his desires, his projects, sometimes his fears. It’s the pleasure of sharing, because I have to teach him as he has to teach me. Our knowledge is different and if I can benefit from his sometimes different knowledge, he or she benefits from my experience, my thinking. My patients are happy to see that I invest myself in my profession, that we reflect together on their problems.
