Hello! Imposter Syndrome
During conversations, Simon has noticed Deena use the line: "I can't be smart all the time" and has often wondered how this phrase came to be. In this episode of "Do You Even Science?" Deena shares that her go-to line is a culmination of events occurring during her PhD and after as she tackles trainee positions as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Medicine. Listen to discover if Deena has been facing high expectations, perhaps a bar she can't reach? Or are the expectations themselves impossible and/or unjustified?
