Transitioning from Residency to Practice: Deciding Where to Go

Today's episode of the AUA Inside Tract podcast is based on a section of the "Transitioning from Residency to Practice Manual."

This manual is now in its 4th Edition and has been prepared by the AUA's Young Urologists Committee (YUC). The Young Urologists Committee has prepared this manual to guide residents and young urologists as they embark on their transition to practice.

One of the goals of this manual is to answer questions like, “which type of practice should I enter? Academic, private, or hospital-based?” It also provides information on the application process, contract negotiation, and physician compensation models. Most importantly, it offers wellness tools, as residents and young urologists are at a higher risk of burnout.
