Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steve C. Lee, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a guide for graduating residents facing the prospect of entering private practice. It covers a wide range of issues that are pertinent in this transitional phase of a resident's career.
Purpose: The aim of the writers is to impart to psychiatric residents a solid foundation of knowledge regarding the nuts and bolts of entering a practice. The writers try to highlight common pitfalls that are avoidable (such as accumulating debt early in one's career). This is definitely a worthwhile objective as most residents may otherwise feel inadequately guided regarding the perils and thrills of entering private practice.
Audience: The book comments that the editor has many years of experience organizing career seminars for psychiatric residents.
Features: The book covers everything from billing systems to office furnishing to common legal pitfalls associated with private practice. Each chapter is devoted to a specific topic and written by a physician with that particular interest or expertise. The prose across chapters is very readable and user-friendly. The book succeeds in providing a good framework for one to build on. Particularly of interest is the chapter on communicating with primary physicians. The author offers insightful communication tips for psychiatric consultants.
Assessment: I highly recommend this book to all residents in their senior year. The book does a great service by filling a desperate need for a practical guide for the beginning practitioner.
