So as we recover from SMACC in Dublin, which was a Wham Bam Shiny Mega Event with helicopters and REBOA and some other things that I will probably never do, I wanted to introduce you to someone thats doing something else that none of us will probably ever do.
Ever been to Elephant Island?
Ever been to a Dentists?
How do we all feel about dentists?
Ever had a “moment” with a Plastic Surgeon?
How do we all feel about the Plastic Surgeons?
Okay I know how I feel about armies, you make up your own mind on that one.
Private sector medicine……?
Okay. So heres this chap that has done a whole bunch of stuff that either scares me or gives me the heebie jeebies. Yet I am extremely envious of his work/life balance and so many things he has managed to do.
This is a jellybean about another path.
A path through medicine that doesn’t get a lot of press.
A path that some people look down on.
Shaun is a “CMO” in a very big ICU in Sydney.
And he is a very happy man. (Despite working with @RogerRdharris.)
He stood out among a bunch of high achievers at the Bedside Critical Care Conference as possibly the most contented chap in the room and probably the one that has reached greater heights. (Physical ones.)
I hope Jellybeans shine a little light on the humans within Critical Care Medicine. It is a broad church. It includes @EMCrit and it includes Shaun Walsh. Both doing interesting stuff and doing it well.
