After years of clinical training, many orthopaedic residents and fellows face an equally daunting task—finding the right job. Because job seekers may be focused on issues such as salary and location, they often give little thought to the interview itself. Fortunately, one of the easiest ways to help ensure success is for candidates to picture themselves on the other side of the table, according to Douglas W. Lundy, MD, vice president of Resurgens Orthopaedics, Atlanta.
“Flip the table and imagine yourself as the recruiter,” he told audience members at the Young Practitioners Forum held during the Orthopaedic Trauma Association Annual Meeting. “In a lot of ways, you’re both actually looking for the same thing.”
