Comprehensive Career and Practice Management Skills for All Physicians and Physicians-in-Training

This new book is destined to become the "bible" for physicians seeking a hands - on primer for career and practice self-management. It is organized into three segments reflecting the three stages of a physician's career: Early-career, Mid-career, and Late-career.

Readers are offered an invaluable treasure trove of practical, hand-on advice. The comprehensive approach to all three career phases is not available in any other current resource. The author team gathers their expertise in one place, in one book, all for the first time.
