"My participation in the Leader's Toolkit seminar was useful in so many ways - some unexpected. I have been more effective at communicating within my family, at my workplace and among the leadership at my hospital. I recommend this course to all physicians who want to advocate for patients or for other doctors, who hold any leadership role in their practice, hospital, community or medical group, or who have any aspirations for such a role." - Ruth Haskins, M.D. Comments are closed.
