Dr. Paul Haidet, Professor of Medicine and Director of Medical Education Research at the Milton S. Hershey School of Medicine at Pennsylvania State University, presented a lecture on the challenges of interprofessional practice. The lecture was part of the 12th Annual S. Amjad Hussain, M.D. Visiting Lecture in Medical Humanities.

Dr. Haidet is a general internist, health-services researcher, educator, and lover of jazz music. His current interest is in the improvisational aspects of patient-physician communication, and he is using his lifelong interest in jazz to create new educational methods and models to foster advanced communication skills among physicians at multiple levels.

The lecture was created in honor of Dr. Hussain, an award-winning writer and photographer, an internationally known explorer, a teacher-researcher, and a distinguished thoracic and cardiovascular surgeon. Dr. Hussain holds emeritus professorships in thoracic and cardiovascular surgery, as well as humanities at The University of Toledo.
