The “What I Wish I Knew” series of articles is a service of AAPP’s Resident and New Practitioner Committee. Articles are intended to provide advice from experts for students, residents, and new practitioners. Articles are not intended to provide in-depth disease state or pharmacotherapy information nor replace any peer-reviewed educational materials. We hope you benefit from this “field guide” discussing approaches to unique problems and situations.
Dr. Traci Turner Cole shares her experience about navigating the first job change, including when and how to alert your current employer, who you should ask for references, how you should manage your time with interviews, and recommendations for maintaining professional relationships.
