Great advice- my spouse is on the internal medicine job hunt, these tips are useful!
I just listened to this podcast last night on a flight as an introduction to your podcast. It was very good! Dr. Chisty's advice was spot on. I am 10 years out of training and wish I had someone like her to give this advice then. Great episode and I will be sure to download many more episodes.
