Our purpose as a clinician community is clear and present in every member story — a common thread centered on improving our own experience as clinicians. It’s what connects us, why we gather in the Clinician Experience Project and what we’re dedicated to supporting each and every day. Watch the story.
"I am struck with the gap in our knowledge and in our training for actually caring for patients”
— Chris Rumery, MD
What our fellow Clinician Experience Project members are saying:
“Beautiful message. I could not agree more. Perspective, humility, and gratitude in the practice of medicine will change the heart of the physician and the patient. There is much noise in what we do. It's critical to regularly come back to appreciating the sacred privilege of caring for the individual patient at the bedside."
— Harland Hayes, MD
“Powerful - point of view is everything. We sometimes forget this is a service profession.”
— Scott Lindley, MD
“After watching this I feel I must challenge myself and my staff to be more than we are, to do more than we currently do, and care more than we have for those who enter our clinic doors in need. In the end we are healers. Thank you for this reminder as to what it means to be a physician.”
— Stephen Sanders, MD
“A wise old surgeon once said,: ‘The eye does not see what the mind does not know.’ Know that each relationship is a gift. We ought to see (and hopefully cherish) them as such.”
— Courtney Chambers, MD
“What gets us out of bed in the morning isn’t the computer, it isn’t the paperwork, it isn’t the bureaucracy of medicine. What gets us out of bed in the morning and keeps us coming back for more is the patient and the human contact -- the ability to heal, the ability to ease one’s suffering, the ability to make one smile. This is the value of medicine. Thank you for the insight.”
— Vince Cantone, MD
“This is a nice reminder of why I decided to become a physician. Often the struggles of life get in the way of my remembering that I am really just here to help the patients. I also need to remember that I am a patient as well, and that if my wellbeing is taken care of, then I can truly focus on my patients more fully.”
— Scott Newbold, MD
