In this episode a number of International Medical Graduates (IMGs) give their insights and experiences about navigating an Australian ED, in particular the culture of communication between staff, and what was new or challenging for them.
Doctors will be able to learn some suggested means of communicating with colleagues of other culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and in particular gain an appreciation for the needs of new IMGs.
This episode also features Dr Johannes Wenzel, an experienced FACEM, giving his expert reflections based on decades of experience as an IMG working in emergency medicine, and who has also worked with and mentored many IMGs.
Finally, each IMG gives their personal advice to new IMGs to help smooth their transition to work in Australia.
This project is funded by the Australian government.
