Our Work in This World Matters
"You have to ask what your part is in perfecting this world."
Conrad Fischer, M.D. is the bestselling author of Routine Miracles: Restoring Faith and Hope in Medicine, Master the Wards: Survive IM Clerkship and Ace the Shelf, and numerous United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) test preparation guides. As chair of Kaplan Medical, his famous educational videos and 12-hour “Cramathons” have helped thousands of medical school students around the world pass the boards.
But the award-winning author, internist and medical educator is also on Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine (TouroCOM)-Harlem faculty as an Associate Professor of Physiology, Pharmacology and Medicine.
He loves teaching, he says, because “it gives me the chance to connect with other people. Students want to have a sense of kinship and relationship to their teachers.”
“I hope that the students see me as committed to their education, hope that they see my sense of devotion to the art of medicine, that people have a higher calling, that people can be of service to things larger than themselves. And that our work in this world matters.”
