You come first

I have received a lot of good advice from a variety of people within the world of medicine, so I thought I’d post it here so it doesn’t get forgotten, and maybe it will help someone else too!

1. Look after yourself, then you can look after others

You’re a human, I hate to break it to you, but you’re not perfect. Tired, disheartened doctors make mistakes and aren’t going to give the best care that they can. Eat right, sleep well, do things that make you happy. This will make you the best doctor you can be.
