COMMUNITY PRIMARY CARE (PRIMARY CARE)

My personal vision for this rotation is to introduce new internal medicine physicians to a unique community and instill in them a burning desire to return to a rural community to practice medicine, there is no better place to be a physician than in a small town. The sense of fulfillment, belonging, and being valued cannot be overstated. In addition to sharing our vision and mission, I plan to take every opportunity to weave our values of respectful compassion, responsible stewardship, deep interdependence, and passion for excellence so deeply into the hearts of our residents that they will want to become a part of the fabric of our healthcare community.

I would expect residents to attend meetings with me to get a sense of their leadership potential in corporate and community roles and responsibilities of the general internist. Things to learn more about can include but are not limited to: Chamber of Commerce Board Relations as a small business in the community, Patient Centered Medical Home, Finances for the Physician Office, Quality Control and Quality improvement, Operations/Management, NGPG Board Leadership, Access, Readiness Huddles, etc.
