Episode 177: How To Be a Star Resident

In this 177th episode I discuss a survey of Anesthesiology program directors where I asked them both what makes a great resident great and what red flags make them worry about a resident. I go through the responses and lay out key points about how to earn the reputation of being a star resident.

A listener recommended the book Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willinck and Lief Babbin about what makes Navy Seal teams successful. There are lots of parallels with what I discussed on this episode.
