POST 62: CLINICIAN CURA TE IPSUM

CLINICIAN HEAL THYSELF The moral of the proverb is an adaptation from the proverb found in Luke 4:23. It means that [physicians] (freely generalised to clinicians to include me) need to first attend to their own weaknesses and unresolved issues before criticising (i.e. diagnosing) issues and problems in others. I could translate this to “first […]

POST 61: GEN Y WORKPLACE

Worth a look: There are four reasons why Generation Y are unhappy: 1) parenting, 2) technology, 3) impatience, and 4) environment. Listen to Simon Sinek and give your 2-cents.
