You will focus on a variety of topics including, but not limited to : (1) the responsibilities of the doctor or health care provider within the facility, (2) the doctor's or health care provider's interactions with overall environment, i.e. relationships with other doctors, co-workers, patients, (3) how the doctor or health care provider is perceived by others, (4) treatment of patients by physicians - including both positive and negative aspects, i.e. racial factors, economic factors and, (5) ethical/ moral decision making process.
