About this book

Introduction

The transition from medical school to being a practicing junior doctor is challenging. It requires knowledge and clinical skills but also the ability to efficiently function in the workplace. At the same time postgraduate professional development in gaining clinical experience, passing postgraduate exams, under-taking research or audit, and publishing become essential for career progression. One soon realizes that being a doctor is not just a profession but a way of life.

This book presents some well-known “pearls” as how to improve your day to day workplace performance, be efficiently productive, be an inherent part of the team, how to shine and impress. Advice is also given as how to prepare for postgraduate exams, develop essential technical skills, apply for the next post, successfully participate in research and audit, publish, manage, lead, teach, and train. This generic guidance can be of use for those aspiring to become a generalist or subspecialty doctor and can be of value in whichever part of the world you end up practicing in.
