Venturing into the field of medicine means the typical barrage of questions for students and doctors in training. The sheer volume of choices ahead of you can be daunting, and prior to medical school, no one really prepares you for exactly what it means to become a doctor.
So emergency physician, author and speaker, Dr. John Shufeldt, sought out to create a list of questions using 30 years of clinical and entrepreneurial health care experience that students need to be best prepared to evaluate their future career path. He chose six high achieving and award winning medical professionals of various specialties to answer these questions.
Dr. Shufeldt calls these chosen individuals: “Outliers,” defined as: “An exceptional person for whom excellence is merely a starting point toward a destination far beyond our normal definition of achievement.”
In this volume, get to know outlier Dr. Robert Cromer, a Family Practice physician of 60 years, World War II veteran and Purple Heart recipient. He passed away just months after our interview with him, but not before leaving with us wisdom gleaned from decades of a successful medical practice and countless patient relationships, while also sharing his reason for practicing, and advice for the quest to keep one’s family front and center amid a thriving career. Also included is a resource guide for those aspiring in the field of medicine.
