Episode 21: You're Not Alone

by Bob Stuntz in ,

In this mini-episode, I talk a bit about an incredibly interesting and important article published recently in the New York Times regarding resident suicide and depression.  The bottom line: If you feel like you need help, you're not alone.

Two quick announcements:

1.  Are you interested in helping write for or participate in the EM Res Podcast and blog?  I am looking to expand the blog and podcast, and I'd love for you to help.  Have an idea for a blog post?  A series?  Podcast ideas?  email me at bobstuntzmd@gmail.com, and let me know what you think.  Residents and educators welcome.  

2. Thanks to everyone who has joined the EM Res Google Community.  The goal is to have this be a place that EM residents and educators (you can help answer resident questions) can get together to discuss resident issues and questions, both clinical and non-clinical.  It gives you a chance to discuss in a bit more of a long form than twitter, is more fun than a listserv, and provides a central location for discussion.  Feel free to post items, comment, and share.  

Now, onto the episode:
