In Part 2, I explore even more critical factors you may not have considered when vetting an endocrinology physician job.
In response to my recent post “Medicine is Well and Truly Screwed, so I Quit”, an endocrinology fellow asked me, “For fellows who are looking for first jobs, what are some things/questions you would highly recommend we look out for/ask?” Realizing that my initial inclination to tell her it’s all hopeless and to give up now might be construed as somewhat unhelpful, I decided to more carefully consider her query.

Since the blog’s inception, my philosophy regarding comments has been to allow anyone to say anything. Unfortunately, my permissive approach has allowed a certain type of comment to flourish – the kind that espouses some of the same non-evidence-based claims that this blog was created to debunk. Well, there’s a new sheriff in town.
