We appreciate the very thoughtful response of Dr Benjamin to our editorial on the role of reading in improving the quality of health care delivered by physicians. We especially appreciate his perspective as both an experienced physician and as a teacher in academic medicine. The learning cycle he describes is at the core of adult learning. We also agree that this approach to learning should be applied to all levels; this approach is central to the American Board of Pediatrics’ maintenance of certification program.
