Faculty comprised of nationally and internationally renowned experts and leaders in their fields, with an unbridled passion for their work, a love of teaching, and the need to serve others.
Ample time to create meaningful communities, rekindle the joy of medicine…and have some plain old fun!
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
It’s personal…it’s pervasive…it touches all of us. Not just physician burnout…but the state of the soul of medicine today.
There are long- & short-term issues and big & small challenges facing healthcare and the delivery of healthcare today in the United States and around the world. They affect us all directly and/or indirectly; they affect practicing doctors on a daily basis in every facet of their lives.
Until solutions are found and changes are made that address these matters (tort reform, reimbursement hurdles, EHR, etc) everyone needs to become vested in the importance of the health and well-being of physicians and nurses who continue to care for all of us in these turbulent times.
It won’t matter who wins the political debates and elections...repeal Obamacare?…move to single-payer system? It won’t matter what insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies do in the future and how large a role they have in decision-making…it won’t matter if you think your wait was too long or your office visit too short…if there are too few doctors to see us in the future. The not-too-distant future. How healthy can the profession be as a whole if the faint drumbeat of doctors advising their own children–and anyone who will listen–to not choose a career in medicine gets louder every day?
