SUMMARY OF TEACHING 11/1/17 – DR TERENCE YUEN (DEMT SUNSHINE)
We workshopped registrar CVs and discussed tips for finessing this important but often overlooked tool for career progression.
Review Terence’s presentation here.
Thanks to Dr Bindu Bali, paediatric emergency physician, who came and held a round table discussion on what registrars wanted and needed out of paediatric ED teaching in the year going forward.
CONNECTING THE DOTS
Terence spoke about the importance of looking back at where you’ve been, and thinking about where you are now, in order to see the trajectory you want moving forward into the future, both as a doctor and an individual.
Thanks to DEMT Dr Terence Yuen.

As a junior doctor, choosing a career path can be difficult. We all have differing priorities and desires, and ultimately, we are all different people. One danger of this time in our careers, is drifting into a state of inertia.
Although this may seem harmless at the time, the ongoing effects of this state can take hold and continue to affect our development as doctors for years to come.
Like plants, our careers are either busy growing, or busy dying. It goes without saying, that we should aim to grow. Like plants, this growth can be small and gradual, and imperceptible to the eye day to day, but over time, we see the benefits of a growth approach.
The slides below provide a visual representation of the elements essential to ongoing growth.
So, ask yourself: What makes you grow?
