“Life After Residency” Town Hall

Ever thought, I can’t wait for residency to end so my life can begin.

If you are a resident or fellow preparing to enter practice, your career path may take you down the street or across the country, and the specialty in which you practice influences that reality. The decisions you make after your surgical residency will shape your entire future. Where will you work? Where will you live? How will you plan your financial future? These are huge life questions, and it can be overwhelming to sift through the options.

To help young surgeons navigate these and other early career steps, the SCCACS is hosting Life After Residency, a special 4-part Town Hall as part of its Annual Scientific Meeting in January 2022. In sessions designed specifically to address some of your most pressing — and practical — concerns, four esteemed surgeons will present on topics that will directly impact your surgical practice and your life:

  • Getting hired
  • Getting published
  • Making a financial plan
  • Succeeding in a community practice

Join this special session on Saturday, January 15th to hear tips and pearls of knowledge for your future after residency. Young surgeons, residents and medical students are welcome.
