Amal Mattu’s Top 10 List for Interns
Amal Mattu recently posted a picture from one of the whiteboards that he teaches with during emergency department shifts. It caught my eye because of the title: 10 Pearls for the Interns. At first glance, it’s just a list of the 10 things that interns should do to survive and be good doctors. But if you look more carefully at the list you will likely realize that it’s a list for ALL of us.
Here is the list:
This list was so popular on social media that someone made it into a nice infographic.
This list is important for many reasons. First, it is a good reminder for physicians (actually, this list is really pertinent for all trainees) who have just entered their training. But I think what is more important is that these are rules for life in medicine. The rules apply to all of us healthcare.
Share Amal’s top 10 list with everyone you know in healthcare, and please share with us what your favorite rule it.
