Better Serving Patients

011: 7 Ways to Continue Learning and Better Serve Your Patients

As clinicians, after we finish medical school, we think we’re ready to help and serve people. Then your first real patient walks in the door – and you discover that you don’t yet know anything. [Cue the reality check!] This is why continuing education is so important.

If you want to serve people and better meet their needs, you always need to be learning. Life has a tendency of getting in the way, so it’s especially important to schedule time for continuing education, read from proven reference books, and truly get to know the products you recommend to your patients. And having a community of like-minded people to learn and grow with is key to success!

Today, I want to give you a proven framework – and seven simple, actionable steps – you can do to up your game and keep learning.

There's a tremendous value in relationships. Because when we’re in community and we connect with one another, there is so much learning that takes place.” –@DrRondaNelson Click To Tweet
