Life in the Emergency Lane

Capture

This talk was brought to you as part of the biannual When I Grew Up series hosted by the Australian National University Medical Student Society. Our guest speaker is Professor Caldicott, who is an Emergency Department Consultant at the Calvary Hospital ACT. It is one of the most heartfelt and genuine talks that we believe all medical students and junior doctors should hear. There are so many pearls of wisdom about living and surviving as a doctor that we can all learn from. This is a raw, honest and entertaining reflection from a senior clinician practicing in one of the most challenging and exciting fields in medicine.
