I am so excited to meet and teach my intern! I just hope she is willing to learn new ways of helping patients and can accept criticism that will make her a better health care worker.

Hello, I am Dr. Grey. I am so privileged to be able to teach you. Some rules that very important to me are being dependable, responsible, and having patience with our patients. But firstly, I would like you to know that this is a hospital, not a swimming pool and you need to go change. Were you made aware of the dress code of this hospital to keep it professional?
Hello Dr. Grey, my name is Addison Montgomery. I did not have time to go back home after taking my cousins to the pool. Do you have scrubs I could borrow for today?
Yes, of course, the hospital has extra scrubs but you may need to work on your time management skills so you are prepared for work. You also need to work on your personal appearance so you have everything you need for work and look professional at work. We need to visit our first patient soon so be in room B105 in less than five minutes.
Okay, thank you!
Hello Mr. Mark Smith, I am Dr. Grey. I am not sure where my intern is but you will probably see her in a bit, her name is Addison Montgomery. Anyway, are you ready to have a heart transplant? We found a donor!
You found a donor?! Of course I am ready to have the surgery! Thank you so much Dr. Grey.
Where is Addison? Was she not listening to me or is she not self motivated to do her best?
I am sorry. I will ask more questions next time and be a better communicator.
Um, sorry. I do not know my way around the hospital yet so I got lost.
Why did you not tell me this? I could have shown you around the hospital so you were not confused. You need to work on your effective communication skills.
Addison, where have you been? I have already done all his tests and labs to make sure he is healthy to have this surgery. Which is your job.
Thank you for changing your older ways. See how much better your leadership skills will be. You will also be a better team player and give good feedback to others when you have a good appearance and hygiene, good, effective communication, and a time management plan.
Thank you for being a good leader and for your honesty. I appreciate it and will always try to better my skills to help my patients the best I can.
