Wooldridge

David Wooldridge, MD, FACP
Program Director, Internal Medicine Residency
University of Missouri—Kansas City School of Medicine

How long have you been a member of AAIM?

Since it was founded in 2010. I’ve been a Program Director since 2009 and was a Clerkship Director for several years prior to that.

What is your favorite part of your job?

Teaching and coaching residents—I knew I wanted to be an educator before I found my way to medicine, and it remains my greatest source of professional satisfaction.

How has the AAIM membership been of value to you and your career?

I’ve spent my entire career at a single institution. AAIM has provided a wonderful opportunity to network and learn best practices from others without “recreating the wheel” over and over again.
