Joy in teaching
Fam Pract Manag. 1999 Sep;06(8):13.
To the Editor:
Teaching medical students and residents as part of my weekly routine has been an important part of my professional life. Rewards are often delayed, but hearing from students and residents later in their careers certainly adds to my personal and professional joy.
Editor's note: This letter was in response to the article in our June 1999 issue by John-Henry Pfifferling, PhD, and Kay Gilley, MS, “Putting ‘Life’ Back Into Your Professional Life.” The article asked, “What has helped you to recapture the joy of family practice?”
