Essential Paths to Life After Residency covers everything from how to prepare for the future during residency, to the various career routes one can take after residency, to the insurance decisions for private practices. It is the ideal reference for students currently in their residency and for those who are interested in starting a practice or entering academia. The breadth of knowledge from the editors and contributors, all of whom have successful, long-standing medical careers, is invaluable. Dr. K.J. Lee's "common sense pearls" and "common sense nuts bolts of a usable robust EHR" are included as appendices. From the Foreword "Part of the reason recent graduates fear starting a practice or joining a private practice is that they learned nothing about the requirements for success in their training. Training people to do surgery and examine patients is no longer sufficient, no matter the pathway you choose upon graduation. Traditionalists do not see educating trainees in contracting, office management, billing and collection, pension planning, purchasing, and so forth as part of the "academic training". "This book helps set the course for your education.It will enlighten you on the the things that are almost never discussed in medical school or residency. " --Gerald B. Healy, MD, FACS Professor of Otology and Laryngology, Harvard Medical School Healy Chair in Otolaryngology Emeritus, Children's Hospital Boston
