Philip A. Masters, MD, FACP, ACP's Vice President of Membership and International Programs, continues his monthly column on KevinMD.

In this post, Dr. Masters examines why he and his colleagues decided to enter medicine. “[T]aking time to reflect on our own personal mission in medicine can help us reframe and reinvigorate us in the work we do and help us maintain a sane perspective as we confront and seek to fix the major problems confronting our patients and medicine as a whole,” he writes.
