Show Notes

In this episode, Dr. Michael Barraza joins Dr. Aaron Fritts to discuss his career path and what he has learned through different job experiences. We discuss how to be proactive during a job search, and Dr. Barraza tells us about his unique experience of getting a job offer while completing his radiology training.

We discuss aspects of jobs that are not learned during training, such as partnership tracks and non-competes. We explain why partnership tracks may be long and what factors determine the intensity of a non-compete. We discuss how call responsibilities are different than during training and some of the advantages of working in a large group.

Dr. Barraza shares his first job experience, why it was not a good fit for him, and how he learned what to look for in his next job. We discuss how to adjust a job search once you have a better idea of where you will fit in and the importance of networking and maintaining relationships with referring doctors. We give some advice to current trainees about how to continue working when you are not getting the opportunities you want and how to know when to switch jobs.
