What should you expect from a phone interview for a new job? What’s reasonable compensation for a job in your specialty, and what red flags should you look for in terms of call coverage?
These are just some of the questions we answer in this first issue of Today’s Physician magazine. Our goal is fairly straightforward: to help doctors entering the workforce build a long and successful career.
Our cover story takes a big-picture view of finding that first job. We identify some common mistakes that young physicians make, from focusing their job search too narrowly to failing to delve into key scheduling or coverage details.
Future issues will continue to offer information you can use as you enter the practice of medicine. In addition to tips on finding the right job, we’ll focus on topics like preventing burnout, dealing with colleagues who behave badly and navigating social media contact with patients.
