Community Practice vs. Academia? Applying for Jobs after Training

You just spent the last 10+ years in higher education and it is finally time to apply for your first job. A distinction is often drawn between jobs in academia versus community medicine. What are the pros and cons for each, and which is the best fit for you? Join us as we address questions including:

  • Does going into community practice mean giving up research and teaching?
  • What if you love academic medicine but don’t want to do research?
  • How do you negotiate and choose the right job?
  • Is it easier to transition from academic to community medicine?
  • When should you start job hunting ? Does the timing depend on the type of job?

Join NEJM Resident 360 for the age-old question of the differences between community practice and academia in an ever-changing landscape of how medicine is practiced, and care is delivered.
