I had a great time talking with the residents in the Department of Radiology at UPenn yesterday! They were really engaged and energized by the ideas we were discussing. They especially liked the ideas that perfection is not possible and also that how we define competence, success, and failure contribute so strongly to Imposter Syndrome. Discussing Imposter Syndrome together will help them bring this topic more into the open and to support each other with the ways they are trying to combat it. It also helps them realize more fully that they are not alone in their experiences.
