This session guides you through the most effective job search strategies, provides a timeline of when to do what, and explains what it’s like to work with a recruiter and other hiring professionals.

Resident Fatigue and Wellness

You are not alone in feeling overwhelmed and stressed as you complete your training. You are all so hard working, but sometimes it’s good to take a few steps back and focus on yourself.

Understanding Employment Contracts and Negotiating Tips

Most residents and fellows have many questions when it comes to contracts. During this presentation we review and define many components and sections of an employment contract, explore different compensation models, discuss negotiating strategies and review how malpractice insurance works and what to look for. Our goal is to help residents and fellows gain confidence during the negotiation process by being well-prepared and knowledgeable about the many aspects of employment contracts.

We discuss budgeting, risk management, preparing for retirement and investment strategies. Most importantly, we review financial mistakes to avoid when coming out of training.

Student Loan Forgiveness and Repayment

According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, approximately 84% of graduated medical students have student loan debt. Navigating the many student loan forgiveness programs and repayment options is certainly daunting. Let us walk you through the various forgiveness programs and repayment options that are available. We also discuss a thorough budget breakdown considering repayment scheduling to show you how repayment is possible without breaking the bank. Our goal is to provide peace-of-mind regarding your student loan debt.

Gleaning tips and advice directly from industry CEOs, recruiters and hiring professionals, we have compiled information from employers across the country to provide insights on what to do during the hiring process and post-residency, as well as key things to consider.
