Editorial Reviews

Anesthesiology News
“I would recommend this inexpensive and highly valuable paperback [The Ultimate Guide to Finding the Right Job After Residency] to all graduating residents. The lists of Web sites alone are worth the price of the book.”
"The book is well organized, is an easy read, and does not have to be entirely digested in one session. It provides a wealth of essential resource materials, Web sites, data, and helpful examples throughout. The organization, economics, and demographics of medicine are in inevitably changing over time, and it is becoming painfully obvious how poorly our training prepares us to understand the implications of practice models, finances, and location on our professional lives. This short little book goes a long way in addressing these issues in remarkably simplistic, understandable terms. It is a useful read and reference for all anesthesia residents before the venture into what seems to be a confusing myriad of opportunity."
