Defined, not Confined

I just walked this morning from a meeting and into our clinics and noticed quite a unique juxtaposition.


I began my morning in the meeting, where there were the uniformly stoic affects, stiff body language and parochial tone married with people all protecting their tiny patch of turf. It was so very unpleasant. This then was followed by the open, interdisciplinary, collegial nature of the five or six different clinician types (and the patients for whom we cared) in the clinic. The bottom line is this: 

It strikes me that we all approach problems and fields from different directions- different perspectives. However, our degrees and backgrounds and training, while they do define us, should not confine us.

Here's to breaking the bonds of conformity whilst defining our collective future– in whatever we do.

Cheers, -DGA
