    "Why I Still Want to be a Physician When I Grow Up: Doctors Will Reinvent Themselves and Why That is a Good Thing"

    These are difficult times for doctors. A futuristic talk that uses guided speculation rooted in changes to society, the health care system, and the makeups of those individuals becoming doctors to identify how physician roles and careers will evolve and what it means for the
    profession and health care. New work, career trajectories, and sources of satisfaction will arise for physicians over the next several decades. 

    Much of this evolution has positive implications for what it means to be a physician, and for improving our care delivery system. Join your colleagues for an evening with Timothy Hoff, PhD a Professor of Management, Healthcare Systems, and Health Policy in the D’Amore-McKim School of Business and School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, Northeastern University, Boston. 

    When: Thursday, Oct 24
    Time:   6:30 pm Reception | 7:30 pm Dinner/Presentation
    Where: Austin Country Club - 4408 Long Champ Dr

    Objectives:
    Knowledge and insight into the major external and internal (to the medical profession) changes that provide a ripe context for evolution of physician roles, careers, and work. 
    Understanding of key features defining the future evolution of the physician roles, careers, and work.
    Deeper appreciation for the opportunities available for physicians in the future regarding how best to enact their careers and jobs over time.
    Awareness of useful skills and competencies physicians should consider for building successful careers in the future health care system.
