Prioritizing time for yourself and your well-being is not only essential for mental wellness, but it’s also a vital element to having an enjoyable, long-lasting career in medicine. In our free hour-long webinar, with speaker Dr. David Crombie, M.D., we’ll discuss this notion further while learning the importance of spending time outside of work doing things that bring you joy. After all, when we improve, we grow in more areas than one.
During the webinar, we'll hear from Dr. David Crombie, M.D., a celebrated local doctor with a storied medical career who has served in various regional leadership positions. Upon first beginning his career as a surgeon, Dr. Crombie quickly discovered that his interest in the study of regional and local medical history brought continuity and a foundation supporting his career in medicine. His interest spawned related roles as a writer, teacher, editor, and contributor to the historical archive of some institutions and professional organizations. Proving that oftentimes, the supplementary things we work very hard on but play no role in earning a living, bring us the most joy and reduce our stress, helping to avoid burnout.
After many years in the practice of surgery, Dr. Crombie's interest in medical and regional history throughout the last half-century has helped support enhancements to his clinical practice, bringing him profound joy. He’ll elaborate on discovering this joy both in and outside of work during this informative session.
