Resident Career Toolbox

This comprehensive hub is equipped with all the necessary guidance to kickstart your first physician job search.

Congratulations! You’re About to Become a Practicing Physician

All your studying and hard work have put you one step closer to the long-awaited outcome — your first day as a practicing physician. As you approach the end of your training, our resident career toolbox is a resource to aid you in your journey toward finding your first physician job.

We recommend you begin your search at least 12-18 months prior to completing residency. Reject the assumption that it’ll be a breeze to find your first job. Yes, physicians across all specialties are in demand across the country, but not every opportunity out there will be right for you.

Surveys have shown that residents and fellows in their first positions have the highest turnover rate, which is often disappointing and disruptive for you and your family. To address this challenge, you’ll find a wealth of helpful resources and insights in the articles below. From refining your CV to interview preparation to understanding compensation models, we hope this equips you for a successful job search.
