"Retired" Physician

Staying young on the
Frontiers of Healthcare

It's hard to retire when the passion remains. Skills as a master clinician fade without constant contact with patients and the continuous learning they stimulate. But us old hands bring experience, might I say, wisdom to guide colleagues. It is invigorating to work with entrepreneurs and watch them thrive!
