THE PRACTICAL PROFESSIONAL in Healthcare

Since 2001, PBI has been working to help those who’ve stepped over the line to step back and learn from their mistakes. In an effort to share what we’ve discovered, and to learn what we can from others in the field, we've collected first-hand accounts and other helpful information into The Practical Professional in Healthcare. By learning from each other, we hope to advance our common goal: to help talented professionals continue productive careers and to keep each other on the right side of the line.
