"I'm always using things that I've learned in class one way or another.  Whether I'm reviewing a journal article, teaching at the bedside, or reviewing goals and objectives for our fellowship, being a part of the program has taught me a great deal and has afforded me many opportunities.  It's not uncommon for me to refer back to the material from various classes to help me with a specific issue.
