Each individual remembers that moment when he or she is called to a caring profession. It drives and sustains us, but at times it can be forgotten. Dr. Bishop likes to remind people that during the times that we feel "burn-out" and our compassion is failing us, it is important to remember the difference between care and cure. He asks us to remember that moment we first felt called to care.
