This includes teaching small group sessions during the academic year as part of the clinical skills course and participating in clinical skills committees. Members are selected on the basis of their experience and a high standard of teaching excellence. Clinical skills mentors are encouraged to contribute to educational innovation and curriculum development and evaluation.

At SSM, he is an active member of the Department of Internal Medicine’s Diversity Committee. Since joining the faculty, Beasley has been committed to training future generations of healthcare professionals.
