Our guest for this episode is Dr. Gerald Williams, the immediate past president of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.  Grandview was lucky enough to have Dr. Williams speak at our graduation this past year and his lecture of personal pearls really got me thinking.  He agreed to chat some more about the principles that drive his practice, which brings us to this week’s episode!  In this episode, Dr. Williams and I discuss several topics, including leadership.  What does it mean to be a leader? How do we develop leadership as students, residents, or attendings?  He also tells us how he decided to become a shoulder specialist and the importance of the patient doctor relationship.  Listen in for some words of wisdom!
