SURVIVAL FOR PHYSICIANS IN THE 90'S
A Presentation / Seminar for Hospital / Physician Staff Meetings
EXPERIENTIAL, CROSS CULTURAL PERSPECTIVE
This presentation addresses the dilemma posed to physicians by eroding personal and professional autonomy in the rapidly changing world of managed care. Repeatedly, physicians report frustration in getting their job done as their training and values dictate. In speaking with groups of doctors, many say that their hands have become tied, due to the tighter and more pervasive grip of managed care. And a few have actually stated that the difficulty in practicing medicine as their patients advocate, has become sufficient cause to consider changing careers.
Drawing from lessons in nature, Peter Wolf's seminars can help doctors feel gratification that comes with sustaining a successful practice through a time of challenge while maintaining personal efficacy and stability.
"Excellent, fascinating...His vivid storytelling style captivated the audience. This was a very unique and compelling presentation. I would definitely give fellow physicians a strong recommendation for Peter Wolf's program."

"I recommend Peter Wolf to anyone who wants to clear the clouds from their vision and see the extraordinary in the ordinary. His connection with nature and ability to bridge its concepts toward the challenges we face is sorely needed in a world of increasing artificiality. I know personally how helpful he can be to someone seeking mastery of themselves and their circumstances. He offers something very unique and important."
"Managed care has invaded the ineffable relationship between patient and physician, presenting an undeniable challenge to my practice. Pressure to compromise quality, professionalism, time, money - ethics - can often end our days with battle fatigue. Peter Wolf awakens and reinforces the essential importance-- urgency-- of addressing core issues of pressure and our need to awaken from a narrow vision, which threatens our survival as practicing physicians. His presentation gets down to basics: the interest and need to retain our soul. I strongly recommend his program to my colleagues."
