90 F A ll 2018 Practice l ▼ T HE C O n T r AC T S & C OMPE n SAT IO n ISSUE D E P A R T M E N T S Snapshot a rif Khan, M.D. Employer: Pocono Medical Center, East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania Residency: Anesthesiology, University of Toledo Medical Center, 2014 Fellowship: Pain Management, New York University, 2015 Khan enjoys spending time with his family and is interested in finance and cricket. What surprised you about your first post-residency job? The job wasn't that different from fellowship in terms of work. However, it was difficult to find the right job. I started the pain program here at Pocono Medical Center, and the challenge was the administrative side, setting up evidence-based protocols and ensuring that the system works with the resources available. What's your advice for residents who are beginning their job search? Start early — credentialing takes awhile. Money is not as important as the location, type of practice and personal satisfaction. Choose a place that will allow you to grow. What was the most important factor in your search for a new job? Growth, and opportunity for leadership and administrative work. How did you find your job? PracticeLink had it advertised, and the employer responded. Any other advice? Try to talk to the chairman immediately, even though human resources may be your first point of contact. Negotiate salary based on market rate — so have an idea of what your compensation should be. How did PracticeLink help you in your job search? It's easy to navigate. The commu nication platform is built directly into the site. Its layout is nice, and it's easy to use. I love using PracticeLink for both passive and active searches.
