Clinician's Perspective

"As a family physician I have not one but two jobs these days: take great care of my patients and continually improve my practice. I look forward to working with the practice improvement facilitators in the Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network to help me do both of these jobs better. An extra pair of skilled hands will be a welcome addition to our improvement team."John Hickner, MD, MSc Professor and Head, Family Medicine University of Illinois at Chicago
