Career Planning

“The Resident Placement Program made an otherwise daunting process manageable. I am truly grateful.”
– Dr. Zeinab Abdi



“I had a great experience with the Resident Placement Program. When I started looking for a job, I had NO IDEA where to start. They walked me through every step of the way and patiently answered all of my questions. They gave me specific advice for my resume and cover letter as well as questions to expect during interviews. It made the whole process so much easier and more successful!” – Dr. Danielle Wiese


“The Resident Placement Program has been extremely helpful for me in preparing for the job search. The team has been extremely informative on preparing a CV and teaching the basics of how to go about searching for career options as well as preparing for interviews. I would recommend the program to any resident whether they are interested in primary care or  fellowship.” – Dr. Erin Schaffner
