Wellness for Emergency Room Residents

I came across this lecture by Lily C. Conrad, MD PhD FACEP on Wellness for Emergency Room Residents and thought I’d share it.  It’s a good review and makes some interesting points.  She raises issues applicable to all residents as well as more specific issues for residents in Emergency Medicine.

The concept of renewal is critical:

  • A single-minded devotion to career is impoverishing
  • By neglecting restorative activities physicians tend to lose their emotional resilience
  • We need to establish time for rest, revitalization, exploration and emotional and well as intellectual growth
