Skill and Passion: What Are They Good For? with John Wynn, MD, DFAPA. Professional competence and enthusiasm are the bedrock of our professional performance, but how do we decide where, when and how to apply them?

And they will direct the future of patient care for all of us. Eligible for CE credit upon successful completion of a quiz.
