As I embark on #PGY30 , I’m reflecting upon my transition to #Intern year and thinking of the new #Residents starting this week…a short thread 1/

#TipsForNewInterns Image
Don’t listen to the #intern jokes.

You are a doctor now and fully a part of the #HealthcareTeam …a VERY important part! 2/

#TipsForNewInterns Image
Take the opportunity to learn from everyone…especially your #nurses.

Also take note of the ppl who treat other staff and patients rudely.

You’re not too young in the game to gently correct them…as you’ve been part of the #HumanRace for a long time. 3/

#TipsForNewDocs Image
We’re all in this together…and our purpose is to serve humanity.

#Servanthood is not a bad word. Placing yourself second is a good thing.

#TipsForNewDocs Image
Placing yourself second does not mean neglecting your own needs as we can’t serve others if we are depleted ourselves.

Self-care is a part of #servanthood

#TipsForNewDocs Image
Enjoy this phase of your life. It’s not to be dreaded & “survived”.

#Thrive in this phase of your career…it will set the stage for all of the amazing things that you’ll do in the rest of your #MedicalTwitter career!

Sending love, prayers, & well-wishes

PS- add this 👆🏼pic of #Witten to your album. At 3am at some point in the next few years when you’re tired & irritable, look at it and smile!😊

I’ll allow you also to show it to a sick patient & tell them that he’s your dog to help them smile,too!
