A webinar for a client yesterday…
During the intro round,a participant said,” I am a Retina fellow….”
I was about to pounce on him with my feedback,” please be formal in introducing yourself….”
Noticing my puzzled look he clarified he’d completed a two-year clinical fellowship encompassing all aspects of medical and surgical retina and is now a ‘RETINA FELLOW’! 😎😜🤪
I then became comfortable with a Glaucoma Fellow and a Cornea Fellow!
I must admit it provided a mirthful start to the webinar on clinical (doctor-patient) communication !
Lesson learnt – Prepare! Prepare! Prepare!
