Harolds, Jay A. MD

Collapse Box


Abstract: A doctor should try to have at least 1 year to do a job search. This allows time to learn how to find a new job, do a careful assessment of what is best for both the doctor and his family in terms of the type of job and the location, prepare an appropriate curriculum vitae, find and research the prospective employers, practice for interviews, go on multiple interviews, have successful contract negotiations, and get hospital privileges and a license in the state. Also, sometimes it is useful or required to work for a week for a prospective employer, to see if there is still mutual interest. The first part of this multi-part article focuses on the self assessment of the doctor and his family to help them determine the location and the type of job that is best for them.
