Are you ready to become an attending? Going from being a resident to an attending physician is a big transition that comes with many new responsibilities and problems to solve. Residencies focus on teaching residents to become competent physicians, but tend to neglect teaching residents how to navigate the business end of medicine. Part of being an attending physician is balancing how to market and utilize your clinical skills to make money for yourself and your prospective employer, while providing quality care for your patients.
