Have you ever a junior member of your team ask you a question, and you had NO IDEA what the answer was?

Like, literally no clue.
Racking your brain.

Nope, just me?

This week’s #MedEdTwagTeam #ClinicalTeaching topic: Humility.

#MedTwitter #MedEd Image

On my first day as a senior resident, I was terrified that my interns would ask me a question that I didn’t know.
…And they did.

So I said, “I don’t know, let’s look it up.”

And, (not surprisingly) they appreciated that.
Me, admitting my limitations & offering to help.
3/ Honestly, this fear of not knowing things still plagues me.
I have a weird combination of confidence + imposter syndrome.

Some days I feel confident.
Other days I wonder why everyone else is so much smarter than me.

Why can't I remember the names of those famous trials?!

1/ 💭Thoughts of a trainee💭

“Should I call my [resident/fellow/attending]?”
“I don’t want to be a bother.”
“I don’t want them to think I’m dumb.”

Sound familiar?
I know these thoughts plagued me.

How can we prevent this?

This week’s #ClinicalTeaching topic: Be Available
2/ To me, “Being Available” means ensuring that my team feels that I am their safety net

Nothing is beneath me.
I’m here to help.

WE, as a team, are responsible for our patients.

A failure of one, is a failure of all.
Yet, an accomplishment of one should be celebrated by all.

In my mind, the concept of “Being Available” has two components:

1⃣Approachability (i.e. are people comfortable asking for help?)

2⃣Proximity (i.e. are you physically & mentally “there” for your team?)
