Life After Residency: A Career Planning Guideis 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 toLife After Residency-a book which continues the seminar discussions in greater depth and magnitude, while maintaining a conversational writing style. Key topics covered include: preparing for a job interview, evaluating job offers and negotiating contracts, obtaining and maintaining the proper State license, applying for membership onto Medical Staffs, obtaining malpractice insurance, buying a house and investing for eventual retirement, and pursuing non-medical career options. Loaded with sage advice and practical wisdom,Life After Residencyis an invaluable asset to every resident during the transition from residency to life thereafter.
