Continued Education for the Practicing Physician

  • Alan K. David


The general public and the medical profession believe that physicians must continue to learn in order to remain competent. This continuous learning process is the subject of the final segment of this book, with chapters devoted to documentation of continued education and the process of developing a family practice library. However, there are three significant problems to overcome as each physician struggles with the concepts of continuing to learn and applying that knowledge to patients.
