Previously, she served on the faculties of the University of Miami School of Medicine (where she was Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Associate Director of the National Center for Faculty Development) and George Washington University School of Medicine.

Dr. Westberg has consulted with, and designed and facilitated workshops for, thousands of health professions educators in a wide range of areas, particularly teaching, learning and communication in education and health care. She has written numerous articles, chapters, and instructional materials for health professionals and is senior author (coauthor Hilliard Jason) of the CIS GuideBooks: Providing Constructive Feedback (1991) and Making Presentations (1991), and of the Springer Publishing Company books: Collaborative Clinical Education: The Foundation of Effective Health Care (1993), Teaching Creatively with Video: Fostering Reflection, Communication and Other Clinical Skills (1994), and Fostering Learning in Small Groups: A Practical Guide (1996), all with Hilliard Jason. She is co-author, also with Jason, of Teachers and Teaching in U.S. Medical Schools and lead writer and producer-director of more than 40 educational video programs and an audiotape program and set of manuals entitled, Spanish in Health Care, which is designed to help students and professionals learn the Spanish needed for interacting with Spanish-speaking patients.

Hilliard "Hill" Jason, MD, EdD, is the first person known to have pursued both medical and education doctorates. After completing his residency and Certificate in Psychiatry at Strong Memorial Hospital, University of Rochester and the Alan Memorial Institute, McGill University, he has devoted his career to finding ways to help enhance and humanize the teaching and communication processes in the health professions. He is currently Clinical Professor of Family Medicine and Faculty Associate in the Ethics and Humanities Program at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. He is also Editor of the journal, Education for Health, and Co-Director of the Center for Instructional Support in Boulder, Colorado.

Dr. Jason has been on the faculties of the University of Rochester School of Medicine (1963-66), Michigan State University's College of Human Medicine (where he was Professor and founding Director of the Office of Medical Education Research and Development, 1966-72), the George Washington University School of Medicine (Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, 1972-78), and the University of Miami School of Medicine (1978-90), where he was Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the National Center for Faculty Development.

He has consulted with, and done workshops for, most of the medical schools in the U.S. and Canada, and with health professions organizations in 27 other countries. He had been host of more than 60 nationally distributed educational television programs and anchored five multi-day, multi-national live educational teleconference. He and his wife, Jane Westberg, Ph.D., have co-authored 6 academic books, more than 40 nationally distributed educational television programs and many articles and editorials. Together, they have offered hundreds of faculty development workshops for thousands of teachers in the health professions. Hill initiated and devised the major study of clinical reasoning that was reported in the book, Medical Problem Solving (Elstein AS, Shulman LS, & Spraftka SA., 1978). He also devised and ran the largest study known to have been conducted of medical teachers, reported in the book, Teachers and Teaching in U.S. Medical Schools (Jason H & Westberg J, 1982).
