As the time nears to release our upcoming book Outliers in Medicine, we couldn’t be more excited to share each interview with you of the featured outliers. With each edit, and step in the publishing process, we are reminded of how inspirational they are and how fortunate we were to have captured a piece of what makes them great. They offered their insights into their medical careers, but also their lives. They have let us in to the most personal parts of their journeys- their biggest joys and their deepest regrets. The book profiles six professionals in various medical specialties. It was designed to act as a guide for medical students, and will also serve as motivation for medical practitioners, physicians, NPs, and PAs well into their career.
One of our biggest privileges was interviewing Dr. Cromer for the book, just months before he passed. We asked him about life’s most important lessons, learned through his career as a family physician of 60 years. His narrative is chalk-full of gold nuggets, these two (as shown above and below in picture quotes) which especially ring true as the holidays commence, and we think of the best things we could give our children and loved ones. His advice, even amidst a thriving career is to always take the time for the things that are most important.
Whether you have children or don’t, are an experienced professional, or haven’t yet entered your career, stop amidst this busy holiday season and remember your reason for celebrating.
Happy holidays, and enjoy!
