Writing as a Tool for Physicians and Physician Leaders
Benjamin Rattray, DO, MBA, CPE, FAAP is a newborn critical care physician in North Carolina where he serves as Associate Medical Director of Neonatal Intensive Care at the Cone Health Women’s and Children’s Center. He completed a pediatric residency and a neonatal-perinatal medicine fellowship at Duke University Medical Center, holds an MBA from LSU Shreveport, and is a Certified Physician Executive. He is the author of “When All Becomes New: A Doctor’s Stories of Life, Love, and Loss.”
Written with powerful, compassionate insight, “When All Becomes New” reveals the joys of triumph and the harrowing experiences in caring for critically ill babies. Above all, it is a meditation on humanism and empathy in life’s most difficult circumstances and the redemptive power of love.
Dr. Rattray discusses his physician leadership journey, his mentor, and his experience in both his MBA and his CPE (Certified Physician Executive) training. He also describes his philosophy for both the science and art of medicine — his use of writing for stories to bear witness for experiences in medicine.
