Continuing Education and Documentation

  • L. Thomas Wolff


Continuing education for the family physician is a learning process which goes on constantly following the completion of formalized medical education. It may be experiential or theoretical, formal or casual, conscious or unconscious. Whatever its mode, it requires inquisitiveness, concern, and awareness of the patients’ needs and the physician’s ability to meet them.
