Important qualities in public speaking:
Lack of fillers (um, so, uh, really, like)
Knowledge of content
Subject matter of pertinence to the audience
Practice (go over the presentation in your head once before giving it)
As a senior resident or attending taking patient presentations, imagine a presentation that is succinct (less than 1-2 minutes), where the trainee avoids filler words, with an organized history, physical, assessment, and plan. Imagine a presentation that does not deviate but remains true to the topic and tells a coherent story. This type of presentation would almost be like a gentle relief in an over-stimulated ED environment.
