Internal Award Recognition: The Golden Bow Tie Award

“Read, think, ask and learn. It is a privilege to be a physician, but with this privilege comes the enormous responsibility for patient’s lives and well-being.  This responsibility can only be met by practicing the best medicine possible, and “best” is always changing. While a lifetime commitment to education is needed, the intellectual stimulation that results from meeting this commitment is another of the extraordinary joys of the profession. Rick Albert 2010
