Medical residents reviewing a tablet

Don't underestimate the information you can gather about job opportunities and the market from networking. Here is a short list of individuals that would be ideal to speak with or ask for mentorship:

  • Faculty
  • Attending Physicians
  • Residency Alumni Groups
  • Professional Organizations

Building strong relationships with other physicians can help you in developing your own career path, and can also help you identify advocates for fellowship or references. Be brave and ask for even 15 minutes of time from a physician you admire or whose career path you identify with and ask them if they have advice for you. You will be amazed how much information they will share!
