    Physicians deserve more recognition for their hard work and dedication

    There’s little argument that it is tough being a physician these days.


    FURTHER READING: Are physician incomes falling?


    I could go into the myriad reasons—ranging from stagnating payments to competing with “Dr. Google”—but this is only a one-page column. And the pages of each issue of Medical Economics provide strategies and solutions to meet these challenges head-on to find success, so I think we’re covered there.

    And let’s not forget that for all the challenges that come physicians’ way, there’s little to no recognition for the long days and extra patience that come with working in healthcare today.  

    So instead, let me say “thank you” to the thousands of physicians who spend each day dedicated to better patient care despite the daily obstacles to provide quality healthcare. 

    It’s a difficult job with a lot of sacrifice and the work should not go unappreciated nor unrecognized.

    To this end, Medical Economics is announcing its first-ever “ChangeMakers in Medicine” award. Not a week goes by that our editors and readers don’t hear about innovative and dedicated physicians doing remarkable things in their community, for their patients and at their practices. So we’ve decided to feature some of them in our February 25, 2018 issue.

    And the great part of the project is that you get to say “thank you” as well.
