BLUF: Become more than an Osteopathic Physician; Become an Osteopathic Leader
We have several great lectures at this year’s conference and several reflected upon the rapidly changing landscape of the American healthcare system. As physicians (and future physicians), we must adapt and evolve from the traditional physician role, into the leaders that the medical system needs us to be. We cannot do this by only setting the example, or only being proficient in our skills. We must think Osteopathically in our leadership. Not only must we maintain our clinical excellence, but also to mentor, teach, and lead our healthcare teams to providing the best and safest care possible.
The bottom line is we must become more than Osteopathic Physicians; we must become a Osteopathic Leaders. AMOPS will continue to advocate and provide education to help you grow. Our new Board of Trustees is eager to get started as we develop tools for you to use and can’t wait to you again in 2017!
