Five risks for training in EM

five-risks-when-training-in-em
St. Emlyn´s - By Janos Baombe - October 29, 2016
"DISCLAIMER: the below tips are based on my conversations with trainers and trainees. It’s unashamebly anecdotal but I make few apologies for that. I’ve supported emergency medicine trainees from all around the world and a few themes have come through. Despite the lack of ‘hard’ evidence, I very much hope you will enjoy the read, give some thoughts to the content and maybe even take something home from it. As with all St.Emlyn’s posts, I hope this informs the debate, please comment and get involved...
This blog attempts to have a look at some of the potential reasons behind this and I hope it will help future and present generations of EPs tackle this problem in our noble profession and maybe even beyond. It hopes to talk about some of the pitfalls that might push our friends and colleagues off the righteous path to Emergency Medicine nirvana (a job with me here in Virchester being the greatest EM post of them all  ).
So what might push us off that path in EM and in medicine in general?
  • DON’T EXPECT FAST RESULTS
  • WHAT ABOUT THE FEAR OF FAILURE AFFECTING YOUR DESIRE FOR SUCCESS?
  • WHAT ABOUT THE FEAR OF THE FUTURE?
  • HOW ABOUT OVERWORK AND FATIGUE?
  • AVOIDING BECOMING A VICTIM OF THE SYSTEM
FINAL THOUGHTS
Our daily job takes place in a fast-paced, often stressful environment which will have some impact on our mood and influence our career choice/progression. There is no doubt we will have ups and downs during this career development where we have to overcome obstacles and most importantly ourselves. The only thing we have to remember is that we cannot look after our patients if we do not look after ourselves: so be kind to yourself too!"
