AbstractDr. Stroehlein begins this segment with some examples of patients with remarkable survivorship periods. He then explains that the Department of Gastroenterology had an impact on developing therapies because they had an appreciation for the negative effects of therapies on patients. He notes that the Department of Developmental Therapeutics was sometimes criticized for ignoring the impact of treatments on patients, and then goes on to describe how the creation of multi-specialty teams built awareness of these effects and helped improve treatments. Dr. Stroehlein says that when he reflects on what he has done in his career, he has had a very positive impact on building teams and integrating members of both the Division of Medicine and the Department of Developmental Therapeutics into the Department of Gastroenterology. This interest in teambuilding has influenced his administrative style as well. He speculates that his abilities to bring people together derive from his experiences growing up in a small town, when was required to interact with many different types of people.
