Resident Topics

Teaching and mentoring residents is one of the most enjoyable parts of being an attending. I get to meet bright and motivated young doctors, and hopefully help contribute to their medical careers. Thinking back, I realize I am in many ways the sum of my preceptors. From the way I manage certain conditions to my teaching philosophy, I can usually attribute each part to a specific teacher.

One of the things I do regularly is focus on residency topics. What I mean by this, is topics that are pertinent to residents that they may not get elsewhere. The list includes

  1. Wellness
  2. How to avoid burnout
  3. How I incorporate exercise in my routine
  4. Healthy eating habits
  5. How to study during a residency
  6. How to structure your studying
  7. How to prepare for exams
  8. How to get a job
  9. What to do with your finances
  10. How to make yourself marketable for a job
  11. How do you build a career.

Granted a lot of these topics I am still learning about. My aim is to pass on what knowledge I have already to my residents. My plan over the next few months is to write about these topics and flush it out a bit more on this site. Hopefully you will find them useful too.

Happy 2019!
