Following postgraduation, continuing to engage in gaining academic knowledge often posits a challenge for medical professionals, especially those in private practice. Nevertheless, keeping up-to-date with ongoing research, new findings, and perspectives regarding psychopathology and medical management often widens the horizon in which one is operating. Private practitioners in every medical field have opportunities to continue refreshing their academic knowledge in the least time-consuming manner while balancing their clinician roles. Being an academician and clinician does not have to be exclusive to each other and furthering knowledge will only lead to better evidence along with experiential-based clinical care and satisfying patient outcomes.
