An apostle of “big ideas”


Fam Pract Manag. 2004 Nov-Dec;11(10):21.

To the Editor:

I just read the new issue of FPM on “Big Ideas to Help Your Practice Thrive” [September 2004]. It’s a great issue. I love that you are capturing and disseminating big ideas. These articles give me grist for the trainee mill and provide hope that you can have fun and a good life as a practicing family physician. I am an apostle of these ideas, and your articles provide the real-life examples I need to do the myth-busting required in this day and age.
