NEEDS STATEMENTThere is an inevitable tendency of specialists to restrict their life-long medical education to topics germane to their own subspecialty. This is to the detriment of their patients who can only benefit from their physicians familiarity with evolving trends in diagnosis and treatment across multiple medical subspecialties. Gas and Gasoline, and MD Motorheads, seek to bring together sub specialists from a variety of disciples in an effort to cross-educate in evolving trends in diagnosis and treatments.
