      Dr. Therese Mary William

Abstract: Introduction: There are lots of transitions within the trajectory of being an independent medical practitioner. Transition is a continuous and an inevitable process in the medical career, it starts from the first day at medical school and continues until doctors’ retirement, with accompanying changes in identities. Transition period can be a double-edged sword, it represents potential threats as well as valuable learning opportunities. Preparedness for transitions can be complex, Isaac Asimov stated in his famous dictum that “Life is pleasant, death is peaceful, it is the transition that is troublesome”. Jindal Snape also, argued that transitions can be times of multiple adversities for some as what it might be seen as minor hassles by others. Transition is a continuous process and a stepping stone between each stage, yet it does not eliminate on stepping up to a new level. Understanding the complexity of the transitions helps smoother processes, better preparedness and adaptation of junior doctors for their new responsibilities and ultimately safer patients.
