Transition to Practice is not a recruitment effort. This educational program will allow
residents to feel more comfortable with the process of finding their first post training
position and understanding employment arrangements. The program will be offered in
a relaxed, informal environment with ample opportunity to ask questions. The information
provided will be beneficial regardless of where a physician plans to practice once training
is completed. Key topics to be covered include:

• Preparing For Your Search-How to Look Good on Paper
• Exploring Opportunities-What to Expect During Site Visits & Interviews
• Contracts, Compensation and Benefits (Oh, My!)-What to Look For in Employment Contracts


This course is targeted towards residents who are nearing the end of their medical
training, and would like to find employment within the next two years!
