Question special

Greetings to our Experts and Readers, and welcome to the "Choosing a Career Path after Residency" NEJM Resident 360 Discussion.

I thought it would be good to launch the conversation by inviting the Experts to give us their lay-of-the-land: in other words, before we get into how a resident might tackle the choice, what do you see as the "paths" available in the contemporary era, how many shades of gray are there between Academic and Private Practices, what niches beyond the sphere of traditional clinical spaces might be worthy of consideration, and so on?
