Notable quotes from William’s Interview:

I gingerly told my chairman ‘I think there may be a better way that we could approach the wound clinic,’ and his response response was ‘Well, that’s good, because now you own all of it.” That was the dumbest and the best thing I ever said to a senior.
If ever there was a career that emphasized fluidity, it’s mine. Starting from wanting to be a basic scientist, to being a doctor doing clinical trials, to being a surgeon, to being a wound care person, to getting business degrees, to doing wound care in the political world of the ACGME. If you don’t stay open to those things, they are not available.
