As an internist, I have to know a lot about internal medicine, but I also have to know a little bit about everything, because I see patients with issues that might be common or not common at all. I make it a priority to keep myself informed about new treatments and breakthroughs.
I am also quite interested in the electronic medical records system we have launched here. I have a background in computers, so it is a natural fit for me. Medicine is really the last frontier that computers have not been a part of. We have held onto paper because of the challenges and complexity involved. But we are changing that, and I am excited about the changes.
