Gabriel Aisenberg MD is an Associate Professor of Medicine and an Associate Program Director of the Internal Medicine Residency program at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. He received his medical degree from the University of Buenos Aires School of Medicine in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1989. He completed his residency in internal medicine at Sanatorio Mitre in Buenos Aires, and fellowships at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and the University of Texas, and the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. Dr. Aisenberg is board certified in internal medicine, certified by the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry for the treatment of opioid addiction, and is board eligible in infectious diseases. He has received numerous awards for teaching and patient care, including the Dean's Teaching Excellence Award, the John P. McGovern Outstanding Teaching Award, the DuPont Master Clinical Teaching Award and the Smythe Outstanding Teacher Faculty award. Dr. Gabriel Aisenberg tells us that one way to ensure a successful mentor/mentee relationship is to make sure your goals align: be clear about what you want to achieve as a mentee and see if your mentor can fulfill those needs. And if they can’t? Dr. Aisenberg says there is no shame in acknowledging that the mentorship isn’t working and moving on to the next person. If you think of the duration of your entire career, your time as a trainee is relatively short. Dr. Aisenberg reminds us, “it's important to be influenced by those that will positively impact your way of practicing, of learning, of conducting research or whatever is in your mind when you're trying to grow as a physician or a scientist.” Pearls of Wisdom: 1. Role models add value to our lives, regardless of whether they are formally our mentors or not. Even the negative role models are valuable because they help you see what you don’t want out of your career. 2. The most successful trainees show caring, and have wisdom, which is the understanding of how to apply knowledge. Knowledge matters, but not as much as caring and wisdom. 3. When you reach that point in your training when you feel underappreciated, overwhelmed, and underpaid, remember your personal statement, which you wrote in the early moments of your career, making a commitment to care for others.
