A biannual tradition at Concierge Medicine Today/Concierge Medicine Forum …
By CMT, Editor-in-Chief
Can you believe summer is upon us! It’s that time of year and our much anticipated summer reading list FOR DOCTORS and FOR NURSES is once again top of mind for our readers.
You’ll be taking the kids and grand kids to the beach or the mountains and grabbing a book or three to read along the way.
In examining the concierge medicine space for well more than a decade now, talking with all of you about your concerns, worries, happy and sad moments, your businesses, etc., there are some habits, character qualities and dare we say, tendencies, that make good Doctors, great Doctors.
You’d probably not be surprised to learn that reading happens to be one of those habits or tendencies that we see successful Doctors, happier Physicians and as a bi-product, have full-panel Concierge Medicine practices in spades.
It was Harry S. Truman who said, “Not All Readers Are Leaders, But All Leaders Are Readers”.
In deed, “leaders are readers …” and well, we thought we would provide a few of the authors, books and titles we’ve been talking to, talking about or you’ve been telling us about lately in some of our most popular interviews, podcasts and stories these past few months.
CMT Book Spotlight (Download Here): Enter your email here (Scroll down on the page) to download Dr. Carrie Bordinko’s exclusive ebook, “Reset Your Life: a Metabolic Change That Will Reset Your System & Life.”
Titles, softcover books, e-books and streaming titles include some of your fellow Physicians, colleagues and business experts who have told us some of what they’re going to be reading this year.
We hope you enjoy this year’s 2021 CMT Summer reading list!
If there are titles, authors or books you think we should include next time, please let us know what you recommend by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
By the way, if you haven’t heard, we have released our new ONLINE PHYSICIAN COMMUNITY FORUM, The CONCIERGE MEDICINE FORUM, with discussion boards, polls, surveys, ways to connect with your peers and colleagues year round, weekly webinars, live events, live chats and even on-demand, online courses and CMEs too!
Have a great summer and we hope to see you live and in person this fall at our Atlanta, GA USA Annual CMT Concierge Medicine Forum. (Register Here …)
We are grateful for YOU and we are grateful FOR DOCTORS.
