Happy Teacher's Day to all

Today Sept 5th is Teacher's Day in India. Teachers and Educators are considered a very important part of our training as physicians. We have role models from high school, undergraduate, medical school and finally in residency and fellowship: teachers make what we are today.

Teachers come in many forms. Some as your course directors, some as your friends, some as your Attendings on the wards. They make a very important part of your decision making of what you choose as a career in medicine. Nephrology as a field needs more Role Models and teachers. Join today and make teachers day memorable by saying a big thank you to all that taught us throughout our career as we move on. A special thanks to our patients:- our best and most important teachers.

In India, Dr. S Radhakrishnan( second president of the country's) birthday is considered Teachers Day. On such a day, senior students take role of the teacher and pass on the torch. Dr. Radhakrishnan was a philosopher and scholar in comparative religion and philosophy. In USA, May 3rd week is regarded as the National Teacher's Week.
