The Rehabilitation Center at Vidant Medical Center is committed to helping adults and children whose lives have been altered by serious injury or disease. This event promotes outdoor recreation for people of all levels of physical abilities. The course will allow us to accommodate racing wheelchairs, sport chairs, or hand crank bicycles.

The net proceeds will benefit programs and services for our patients. Donations from previous races have been used to further expand our facility's specialty equipment for improving muscle strength and balance, and promoting independence in daily living. Such equipment enables us to fulfill our mission of helping people reclaim their lives.

Beyond Malpractice: The Young Physician's Guide to Legal Medicine

Beyond Malpractice: The Young Physician's Guide to Legal MedicineOne of our department faculty, Dr. William L. Doss, III and one of our residents, Dr. Eric Rush, have published a book, Beyond Malpractice: The Young Physician’s Guide to Legal Medicine that is now available on Amazon.com.

Perhaps you're a seasoned physician at the top of your field - or maybe you're still fighting your way out from underneath a giant pile of medical school textbooks. Either way, another hefty tome telling you how to do your job is probably the last thing you're looking forward to reading.

But today's physicians have a need for know-how that goes far beyond anatomy and physiology. The duty to "do no harm" is one that you are bound to by law - and the complex legal matters governing medical care should be part of every doctor's arsenal of knowledge.
