Good presentation and performance skills should be a part of every doctor's skillset, and ward rounds and audit meetings provide one way to develop them. If the thought of a mistake in these conditions fuels performance-dulling anxiety you might like some more practice. Toastmasters is a non-profit organisation that provides a friendly supportive environment for public speakers to develop their skills.
