Ruth-Marie Fincher is a professor emerita and inaugural vice dean for academic affairs at the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Health Sciences University.
LEADING THE WAY
Early in her career, Fincher identified the need in medical education for a faculty training program that focused on helping physicians develop mentoring skills. To fill this need, she co-founded two organizations: Clerkship Directors in Internal Medicine and the Alliance for Clinical Education.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"There has been no single figure in American medical education who has done more to define and nurture the roles of the clerkship director as an essential leader in student education." – Louis N. Pangaro, M.D.
