Creating Good Habits, Breaking Bad Ones

We all know that habits are hard to break. As an educator, I spend a lot of time trying to prevent trainees from building bad habits at the start, since once they create those habits, it’s going to be very difficult to change. I’ve often felt that there is a sort of organic, uncontrolled quality to the creation of human habits.


Lions and Tigers and Insurance Companies, Oh My

I had a productive conversation with my patient, we agreed on a plan, and were scheduling the surgery for a couple of days down the road until…STOP!!!!! Enter the insurance company and my little ongoing nightmare.


MRI Contrast: A Public Service Announcement

In the ever-changing world of medicine, it’s important for all healthcare providers to remain cognizant of changes that affect our patients’ health. Many of us order magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for various disorders affecting the body, and MRI has been a favorite modality for many of us due to its relative safety compared with radiography and computed tomography.


Should Medical Providers be Held Responsible for Patient Outcomes?

In our ever-progressing world of evidence-based practice, the push for assessment, pay for performance, and MACRA/MIPS, it appears medical providers will be held increasingly responsible for the outcomes they produce in their patients.


PRESENT e-Learning Systems
CME on the Go

With the rapid growth of medical information and the growing challenge that medical device and pharmaceutical companies face in keeping their healthcare provider (HCP) customers and their employees up to date, efficient online education has become more important than ever.


Reinvigoration with Resident Training

Recently I’ve been working with a friend to set up a new podiatric rotation for my residents at the Chino Valley Medical Center program. We’ve made great strides with building strong podiatric experiences for my residents, but I’m always looking for more, especially with colleagues like my friend who are incredible educators besides being world-class physicians and surgeons.


Coaching Physicians and Surgeons

I recently read an interesting article by one of my intellectual heroes, Dr Atul Gawande, the surgeon and staff writer for The New Yorker. In this article, entitled Personal Best, Dr Gawande makes the case for physicians having coaches in the same manner as athletes.


The Power of Collaboration

In many cases, podiatry is like a farm with different silos separating the various parts from each other. We have nine podiatry schools that are variably siloed from each other, competing to fill their classes. We have more than 200 residencies competing for the best residents they can get. Many podiatrists compete for business out in the community.
