This year’s edition of the Canadian Medical Association’s New in Practice guide is now available with invaluable information for physicians who have just completed, or who are just are completing residency training.
The guide, which is available in English and French, contains information on a variety of useful topics, ranging from the business side of medicine to financial planning, medical law, and information from provincial and territorial associations across Canada. The French version also contains content tailored for residents in Quebec.
In his introduction to the 2015 edition, CMA President Chris Simpson talks about how the CMA and its subsidiaries are providing tangible support to help new physicians in the balancing act between building a thriving practice and maintaining a healthy personal life.
Resident Doctors of Canada (RDoC) President Christina Nowik mirrors these sentiments in her introduction. She notes that RDoC “supports seamless transitions throughout training and into practice (and) this includes both development of non-clinical skills and ready access to the tools and resources that we will need to ensure we have long and successful careers.”
The publication is edited by Drs. Brian Cummings, Tom Falloon and Darren Larsen, all of whom have extensive experience in providing advice to residents and new physicians on financial and practice-related issues.
The electronic version of New in Practice is already available, and paper copies have been sent to more than 24,000 residents.
