Change the Profession


The one twist for me is that my experience working within a multispecialty group has taught me that specialists are exceptional people and are as interested in the health of communities as any primary care specialist (we’re all specialists, to be accurate, I am one in family medicine).

We can do a lot when we think about how the profession as a group serves the goals of health care, and I think many of our nation’s multispecialty groups have this philosophy (see Council of Accountable Medical Practices).

“We are here because of the patients, not the other way around.”
