Interview: William Norcross, M.D., Professor of Clinical Family Medicine; founder of PACE physician evaluation program, UCSD.



In a new segment titled “Voices from the Clinic,” host Steve Bogdewic, Ph.D., chats with William Norcross, M.D., who started the Physician Assessment and Clinical Education Program designed to help physicians decide when it is time to retire. Norcross is a professor of clinical family medicine at University of California- San Diego. He says that although cognitive functions begin to diminish in the sixth decade of life, this does not mean that aging physicians can't find another role in health care that does not compromise patient safety.
