Making the Match: Building Professional Identity after Residency

Brenda Thompson is my guest on this episode of the podcast. Brenda has a background in counseling and education and is a longtime professional in the graduate medical education space. For the last year or so, Brenda has been working as a resident and fellow liaison, educating residents who are transitioning into practice about topics such as how to negotiate a physician’s contract, how to prepare for the interview process, and how to form their professional identity for the community, their patients, and their colleagues. 

Join the conversation to learn from Brenda about:

  • The role of the physician liaison
  • How Brenda and her colleagues teach newly minted physicians to stand out from the crowd, establish networks, create relationships, and negotiate contracts
  • How continuing education can educate established physicians about the business side of medicine
  • The need for health and well-being education for residents and fellows
