Advancement Resources is pleased to invite you to spend a few important hours with Dr. Cliff Harris, Faculty Liaison for Development at Stanford Medicine, and Principal Consultant at Clifford Harris Consulting Services. With 10 years in clinical practice as a primary care physician and teacher at UCSF medical school, and 20 years as a medical fundraiser, Cliff brings both worlds together in this dynamic session to help development professionals enhance their language skills to build stronger partnerships with physicians and their grateful patients.

  • Learn the building blocks of medical words to demystify complex terminology
  • Discover the important role that language plays in building and eroding trust with physicians and their patients
  • Expand their medical vocabulary and understanding
  • Gain confidence in working in a medical environment
  • Create strategies for applying learning to enhance their own work with physicians and grateful patients
