Question: What is the best part about your job? 

Dr. Monina Pascua: The best part of my job is drive — driving passion in the people I work with to deliver exceptional patient care. As medical director of my clinic and chair of my organization’s quality program, I have the opportunity to inspire and engage staff and colleagues towards improving the patient experience, lowering healthcare costs and reducing burnout, which I then get to see translated into delivering high-quality outcomes for our patients.
