The article focuses on the life of physicians after their retirement. It states that many retired physicians missed the sense of purpose of their careers and the camaraderie at the workplace. According to retired doctor Ashok Muzumdar, other physicians do not enjoy most of their life after retirement. Muzumdar is interested in forming a Canadian Society of Retired Physicians, whose members can help in various works which include mentoring of young physicians, travel clubs, and reading clubs.
