David M. Irby, PhD is a professor of medicine, member of the UCSF Academy of Medical Educators and Center for Faculty Educators, and the former vice dean for education at UCSF. 

Along with Professor Richard Reznick, he was the winner of the Karolinska Institutet Prize for Research in Medical Education in 2010. The three cornerstones of his work have been to advance understanding of clinical teaching, share best practices through faculty development and publications, and continuously improve medical curricula.

In this interview we discuss his career and why fantastic expertise doesn't necessarily make you a good teacher.
