​Transitioning to practice

As a physician, you’ve learned how to provide the highest quality care to your patients. You may need some help with:

  • building a team of trusted professional advisors
  • successfully negotiating contracts
  • setting up an office
  • organizing your billing and finances
  • implementing an electronic medical record (EMR) system

Resources to help you on your way

New in Practice Guide

Transitioning from residency to practice? Need to learn more about medical billing, financial planning and insurance? The New in Practice Guide pro​vides the information medical residents need to start off on the right foot.

Plan your transition

CMA’s Resident timeline tool spells out what you need to do, by when, and helps you prepare for transitioning into practice.

Attend a practice management seminar

Once you enter residency, consider attending a Practice Management Curriculum (PMC) seminar at your school to explore the principles of personal, professional and financial management.

Consult our practice management modules

The modules complement the New in Practice Guide and our onsite PMC seminars by providing more comprehensive and essential information regarding personal and professional issues to consider when evaluating future practice options and transitioning to practice.
