Dear Colleagues,

My grandchildren fishing at our cottage on Charleston Lake

This month we welcomed our new residents with many activities: orientations, potlucks, barbecues and more! I imagine for some, it was overwhelming with all of the new information and new faces! The last minute scheduling and fine-tuning is also a challenge and I thank everyone, especially our staff, for their flexibility and patience. 

I was fortunate to supervise last week and it was so inspiring to meet such eager and wonderful new residents. I hope your time with us meets your expectations!  Our goal is for every resident to be the best family physician you can be. Please take advantage of your time with us to meet our outstanding faculty.  With almost 500 faculty members, the varied interests and options available is almost limitless!

The summer also brings great weather, vacations and time to recharge batteries. We are fortunate to be working with our wonderful teams and colleagues who assume our responsibilities when we are away.  I am looking forward to two weeks with my family on Charleston Lake and am grateful that I will not have to worry about my patients. Thank you, team! As we will not be publishing in August, I wish you all a great summer and many warm (not too hot) days.
