“I was honestly blown away by the degree of professionalism, seriousness, and relevance of the workshop to me not only as a physician but also as a person. The workshop as a whole made me more aware of the many subtleties that are needed in patient-physician interactions during difficult times and I am not alone in feeling this way.”
