Review of <em>The Three Stages of a Physician’s Career: Navigating from Training to Beyond Retirement</em>.

Reviews the book, The Three Stages of a Physician’s Career: Navigating From Training to Beyond Retirement edited by Neil H. Baum, Joel M. Blau, Peter S. Moskowitz, and Ronald J. Paprocki (2017). This step-by-step guide for physicians (although somewhat germane to other health care providers) advises clinicians about molding and self-managing their career to cultivate the most satisfying trajectory. Uniquely, the book provides a detailed examination of physicians’ career development, highlighting challenges and expectations physicians encounter while matriculating through critical career changes. Each milestone requires a different strategy and approach, as described in the three sections of the book. The book concludes with strategies on how to manage life after a medical career. Whereas the book is valuable for physicians and other health care professionals, some content is limited to independent practice settings. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)
