On 15th January 2019 Clovelly Bowling club hosted the 2nd annual Emergency Medicine Trainee Well-Being Day. Emergency physicians from across Sydney shared both personal and professional views on trainee well-being and offered experiential advice to trainees on how to survive in EM as a career and help navigate the challenges that may present along the way. The day included a packed programme covering different aspects of well-being, including a video produced by FACEMs for trainees about their insights into well-being. Other topics included recounts of personal loss and involvement in coronial inquests, medicolegal and financial advice just to name a few. The organisers of the day, Dr Jennifer Davidson, Director of Emergency Medicine Training at Liverpool Hospital, and Dr Courtney Peros, an advanced trainee in EM at Liverpool, were thrilled to see so many trainees and FACEMS attend and show that trainee well-being really is a top priority in all our minds. A big thank you to our major sponsor the AMA (NSW) / ASMOF (NSW) Alliance whose commitment to trainees and their well-being made the day possible. The day ended with a relaxed evening of mingling and barefoot bowls.
