Dr Katrina Sheikh is an Acute Internal Medicine SPR and Chief Registrar at the Royal College of Physicians. Katrina went into medicine because she absolutely loves meeting people, hearing their stories and helping them, and she loves science, so the two combined into a career in medicine.
Katrina joins me on the podcast today to talk about the importance of speaking up when something isn’t right. Katrina shares some of her experiences of working in a toxic environment and the steps she took to manage the situation. She shares the importance of documenting when things aren’t right and how to manage conflict and different working styles. And finally shares how kindness is not a weakness and that if you are kind, it doesn’t mean you are not strong.
“I say to undergraduates who contact me about postgraduate study – What is going to make you happy? And then do it. Because life is too short to not do what makes you happy.” Dr Katrina Sheikh
