While retired from neurology, Dr. Abramson remains actively engaged in physician communication and physician wellness pursuits. He has conducted numerous workshops in these areas and has personally coached many physicians. He has developed programs on time management, physician-patient communication, marriage in medicine, burnout, the threatened physician, difficult conversations, storytelling, and his favorites: “The Secret of Happiness” and “What The Great Wisdom of Country Music Can Teach Physicians.” He takes pleasure in delivering talks on these and other subjects.
