Traveling to a faraway country and observing significant cultural differences can be an awe-inspiring experience. Upon further contemplation and reflection, it becomes apparent that even small cultural differences can lead to noteworthy changes in how a society functions. But how about an organization?

As he updated the nation on President Trump's Health, White House physician Sean P. Conley, DO, brought new attention to the osteopathic degree. Many in the media questioned not just his statements, but also his qualifications to serve in this important role. But as those in the medical community are well aware, they could not be more wrong. Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs) are similarly educated and identically licensed as our colleagues who hold a Doctor of Medicine degree, and as is the case for MDs, there are no restrictions on our practice.
Burnout is receiving greater attention in the pharmacy field and throughout the health care community. Practitioner burnout can impact not only their own wellbeing but also has ramifications for patient care. A recent management tip discussed the use of a professional sabbatical to provide pharmacists with time to rest and recharge.
