On Imposter Syndrome in Medicine

Have you ever doubted your own abilities or had a nagging feeling that at any moment someone was going to expose you as a fraud in your profession or area of study? You are not alone! It turns out that imposter syndrome is quite common and can occur at all stages of medical training and beyond. In this episode, UCSF emergency medicine doctors and educators Dr. Rosny Daniel, Dr. Jill Mongelluzzo & Dr. Marianne Juarez join us in discussing their varied and personal experiences with imposter syndrome, and how each has learned to recognize and overcome it. In this meaningful panel discussion, we also explore how we can view the imposter experience not as a weakness, but rather as a strength in a positive growth mindset.
