Doctors graduate residency programs with a remarkable array of skills, and a singular new challenge: where and how to best put them to work. The components may be practical, such as identifying the steps required to launch a new practice, and deciding what (if any) insurance plans to accept. They may be granular, like factors to consider in an employment contract, and how to obtain a National Provider Identifier number. Increasingly, they are also broad, addressing questions of work-life balance, innovation, and career longevity in a fast-changing healthcare market.
