A day in the life of an academic GP

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debateResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The work of an academic general practitioner encompasses a range of roles and activities and given the
diversity there always seems to be more to do. Each
day (or at least most days) on the drive to southwest
Sydney, I eschew the chatter of breakfast radio
announcers to think about the issues and tasks for the
day ahead. Despite this attempt at prioritisation and
time management on most occasions having dealt with
the most pressing or important of the flurry of email
correspondence and spent some time interacting with
staff and patients, at least half the list of tasks remains
at 6 pm. The decision then, is how much later to stay.
