Jonathan Eli Fischer
Associate Consulting Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health

I have a longstanding interest in provider-patient communication as well as medical education. From my earliest days in practice, I have been involved in teaching medical students, residents and other clinicians. I was a small group leader at UNC Medical School in their Introduction to Clinical Medicine course for nearly a decade and The NC Academy of Family Physicians recognized me as a Master Preceptor for my work with learners in clinic. During my first years at Duke I was core teaching faculty in Duke's Family Medicine Residency program.  As a clinician educator with Palliative Care, I teach communication skills across the health system at Duke, and have been designated a Distinguished Faculty for teaching communication skills with Vitaltalk and Ariadne labs. I am invited regularly to teach other clinicians and other medical school faculty both nationally and internationally. Recently I have also been working with Duke's REACH center for Health Equity to develop a training for medical providers, aimed at mitigating the negative impacts of implicit racial bias in the medical encounter.
