Jane Westberg

I feel privileged to have interviewed the scores of amazing health professionals who are featured on this website.

My career has been devoted to trying to improve health care by educating competent, culturally-sensitive health professionals. Most of my efforts have been in faculty development and curriculum reform. My husband, Hilliard Jason, MD, EdD, and I have consulted with and conducted workshops, nationally and internationally, for thousands of educators in the health professions. We have written 7 books and many articles on the subject.

I am currently a clinical professor of family medicine at the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine. I have also served on the faculties of the University of Miami School of Medicine and George Washington University School of Medicine and Health. I am an associate editor of
Education for Health, the journal of The Network: TUFH - an international organization devoted to improving health care through such strategies as community-oriented health professions education. I am also a regular contributor to Winds of Change an American Indian-published and nationally distributed magazine with a focus on career and educational advancement for Native people.

I welcome your feedback on and suggestions for this website. Please contact me at
