I’d like to thank Dr. Caprio for encouraging them to join and support their professional organizations. Dr. Caprio related his own sense of intellectual and social fulfillment gained through his involvement in his state and county medical societies. He educated them about the many services available to members and described the NCMS as a “One Stop Shop” for medical practice needs. Thanks, Dr. Caprio!
Capstone Director Dr. Ana Felix, Dr. Caprio and I challenged these almost-new doctors to claim their rightful control of the medical profession. With Match Day less than two weeks away, new graduates are entering medicine during one of the most challenging times in history. I hope these new physicians will fulfill the need for physician leadership and activism in the delivery of healthcare. Good luck to the Classes of 2010 at UNC, Duke, WFU and Brody. It is your time to shine as you begin your honorable careers.
