  3. Apply lessons learned by other generalists to their own practice.
  4. Foster the adoption of active learning strategies and other innovative educational methods by general internists.
  5. Encourage listeners to seek out new ways to support work-life balance and enhance their ability to achieve their personal and professional goals
