Overview

* A resident's guide to landing a job, building a career, and managing finances
• Step-by-step instruction and numerous insider tips take the guesswork out of career planning
• Based on a highly popular seminar on career planning at Stanford University Medical Center Life After Residency: A Career Planning Guide is an insightful, step-by-step guide to achieving a successful and fulfilling career in medicine. As professors at Stanford University Medical Center, Drs. Melissa Berhow, William Feaster, and John Brock-Utne began running seminars to advise their residents not only on creating a curriculum vitae and landing a great job, but also on how to manage student loan payments and avoid pitfalls in the life of a physician. The immense success and ensuing demand for more seminars eventually gave rise to Life After Residency-a book which continues the seminar discussions in greater depth and magnitude, while maintaining a conversational writing style. Other key topics covered include:
• Preparing for a job interview
• Evaluating job offers and negotiating contracts
• Obtaining and maintaining the proper State license
• How to apply for membership onto Medical Staffs
• Obtaining malpractice insurance
• Buying a house and investing for eventual retirement
• Advice for non-medical career options Loaded with sage advice and practical wisdom, Life After Residency is an invaluable asset to every resident during the transition from residency to life thereafter.
