2016 Best Consulting Physician at the Johns Hopkins Hospital – Elliot Fishman M.D.

I think Hopkins is
an incredible place to be, you work with incredible
people on a daily basis. There’s great opportunities for
developing and training and teaching in an atmosphere like that,
it’s not hard to succeed. I think at the end of the day the
reason we’re here is for patients, and good patient and
great patient care. And this award for
consulting is really an award that I share with everyone
I work with on a daily basis. It’s so important that we do
what’s necessary 24/7 365. And I think if I can
give people advice, it would be that treat every patient
as if it was your family member and I think you’ll get it right. You have to look at Hopkins, you have to look a patient care
as something new everyday. Everyday there’s new patients,
everyday there’s new challenges, everyday there’s new experience and
I think the people who’ve been success what happens
are almost anywhere. Look at everyday as a new day, as a new opportunity, it’s not going
the same things over and over again. It’s something that you learn to
do by learning from the people who preceded us and by learning from the people you
work with on a daily basis. So the fact that I’ve
been here 36 years, it seems like I’ve been
here more like 36 days. It’s just beginning, and my feeling
is the best is yet to come. [MUSIC]
