Teaching Humility at the Bedside
1) Unpretentious openness
2) Avoidance of arrogance
3) Honest self-disclosure
4) Modulation of self-interest
2. Master the art of great questions—“Who did you involve in the diagnosis? What do your fellows think of this diagnosis? Who was more comforted by the diagnosis you or the patient? ”
3. Get students out of their comfort zone—Allow them the opportunity to practice what you taught.
4. Help students improve.
5. Model humility.
