CAREER PLANNING

A sustainable health care system must ensure an appropriate specialty mix that is responsive to population needs. This requires effective physician resource planning and training – but for resident doctors, anxiety may also exist surrounding how to go about actually finding jobs when the time comes.

RDoC’s Role

RDoC has advocated for longitudinal career counselling that reflects the best available evidence on all aspects of medical school, residency, and practice. We believe that better data, planning and analysis is needed to ensure the provision of appropriate resources and supports, including career counselling and mentoring to residents as they make career decisions.
