“Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.” – Vince Lombardi
Medicine is a unique profession in that it demands so much of its practitioners: arduous training followed by a lifetime commitment to learning and improvement. Perhaps more than other medical specialties, anesthesiology requires the utmost dedication because of the broad scope of our practice, the evolving nature of our work and the daily responsibility of very directly taking people’s lives into our hands.
Historically, physicians have enjoyed a degree of protection from economic and political discussions as it was understood that the practice of medicine is complex and the intricacies of each specialty and interaction were best left to the discretion and regulation of the medical community. For a variety of reasons, this is being challenged – and more than ever, physician leadership is needed.
