On this date in 2019, I began working at RowanSOM. In my time here, I've had the opportunity to work with outstanding professionals, and I've been able to learn a lot about medical education. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone I've worked with over the last three years. It's been a wonderful experience, and I thank you all.

A reminder that all Faculty Focus Newsletter and Update issues are available from the Faculty Focus Archive.

I thank all who help with content curation and those who have shared items with me for distribution.

Thank you, Steve
