Step 5: Remember this advice It can be overwhelming for residents in their final year of training to think of suddenly becoming a practicing physician. To help you manage through this discomfort, remember a few key last pieces of advice. Narrow where and how you want to practice. Though it may seem frightening to choose a specific location and practice, remember that your first job is not likely to be your last job. Make a list of priorities, and make your career decisions based on those priorities. Seek to understand different practice settings. For example, try to gauge how decisions are made in the practices in which you're interviewing, and who is involved in those decisions. Remember that compensation isn't everything. Money may not be the major decision maker if quality of life is higher on your list of priorities. Your first practice may not have everything that is on your priority list, but creating that list is still worth doing. Use your list, ask colleagues, network and attend conferences to do the research and find your dream practice.
