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.
Check this sobering article out here.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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:
