Learning to Learn: The Teaching Legacy of Eugene A. Stead, Jr., MD traces the teaching legacy of one of America’s most gifted medical educators. Dr. Eugene Stead, founder of the PA profession, was active at Duke University for more than 50 years and chaired the Department of Medicine there from 1947-1967. His philosophy of education touched future doctors, nurses, and physician assistants at Duke and across the nation through leaders he trained. The heart of Stead’s legacy is a handful of principles that are as essential today as they were 50 years ago. These principles are captured and amplified in the seven papers contained in this volume along with the recorded discussion by several of Stead’s colleagues and pupils that followed the reading of those papers at a symposium held in 2008 in honor of Stead’s 100th birthday.

–  $10 each plus $3.75 shipping and handling for a total of $13.75
