Pediatric cardiologists teach complicated concepts to a diverse group of learners that include medical students, nurses, residents, fellows, patients, and parents. Unfortunately, much of what is taught is not retained. In order to increase the likelihood of long-term retention, a cardiologist should teach with both meaning and sense. The authors provide a review of these concepts and give specific examples of how to teach in ways that both make sense and are meaningful to a cardiologist’s leaners.
