On this episode of First Year Diaries, I am joined by Dr. David Carr, an Emergency Medicine Physician working in Toronto, who is a renowned medical education speaker and Toronto Blue Jays team physician. I asked him to impart his wisdom to new staff physicians like myself and share his approaches to a successful career in medicine. Later in the interview, we also discuss workflow strategies for the ED, common mistakes made by new physicians, and tips on how to maintain wellness/avoid burnout.
