How do I choose the best residency program for me?

March 5, 2018


There are many ways to find out about residencies in your area.  Both traditional and non-traditional residency models exist.  If you want to stay in the region you currently reside in, ask your local clinics if they offer a residency program.


Non-traditional models typically allow you to join the team and begin a residency simultaneously.  Traditional models may require you to search outside your current region to relocate for the opportunity. 


With this model, a set number of positions are set aside each year for an incoming cohort.  For some, this may be the ideal situation and as a result, you may travel out of your region for this experience.  The decision between these two models is obviously a personal decision depending on your life circumstances and career preferences. 


Should you choose this more non-traditional route, my advice would be to seek out the culture that fits you the best.  Should you find the right fit, you will in turn play a role in further stabilizing this culture, which is hopefully a culture of clinical excellence throughout the entire team.
