Over the last year or so I have received quite a bit of mail / feedback asking about the “Lessons Hard Learned” series that I ran a while back on the podcast. It was a project I really enjoyed doing, it allowed me to interrogate the minds of some super smart folk out there.
So, after a bit of head-scratching I have decided to give it another crack. I am inviting a pile of FOAM friends back to the mic in order to learn the tough lessons that Medicine teaches us in life. [BTW if you have a story or “lesson” you would like to share, and teach us all – just drop me a line on the email / contact box.]
So to kick off the new series of “lessons” I am very happy to invite Dr Penny Wilson – my friend and colleague from right here in Broome to share a story from her early days as a junior doctor. There are some great lessons here for both JMOs and their senior supervisors alike. Luckily, the structure of supervision in Australia has improve a lot in the last 10 years. I think we have learned a few of these lessons the hard way. However, I know that there are a few countries out there with systems that may still be learning these. So have a listen.
