Who has influenced you most when it comes to how you approach your work?
My co-residents, especially the chiefs, have impacted my approach to work more than anyone. Residency is a really unique time of life and balancing work, family, and taking time for yourself is tough. There are times to really grind and bust your butt for patients, but there are also times where you need to take a step back and invest in your family and yourself. Older residents seem to have the most insight on how to walk that line.
