Last Year Physician Resident Checklist
Here is a last year resident checklist not to forget:
Licensing is becoming increasingly complex as identity and medical fraud become more common. Therefore don't wait till the last minute to start the process. The AMA reports that physicians should expect the process to take at least 60 days, and should plan their career moves accordingly.
The highest volume of licensure applications is received between the months of April and September, when physicians with school-age children are making changes and residents who didn't plan ahead are applying for licenses. Therefore the standard approval timeframes posted on a state medical board's website don't apply during this period and expect the process to take longer and act accordingly.
Having a permanent address during residency enhances the process for licensing and other credentialing.
Keeping your state licenses active is also very important. It makes getting additional state licenses much easier. Most state boards require verification of all licenses, regardless of status, before they will issue a new license. About half require you to submit a written statement explaining why you let any license expire or lapse.
DEA: (Drug Enforcement agency)
Unless you are a radiologist, you must have a DEA license to practice medicine anywhere in the US. You will need it to write any form of prescription.
Your residency program may have a blanket hospital DEA license covering residents. This covers you during your training, however, you will eventually need a personal DEA. Having a permanent address and specified worksite in the same state as your original medical license makes the process much simpler. and you may be eligible for reduced student rates.
UPIN: (Unique Physician/Practitioner Identification Number)
As with your DEA, we recommend that you apply for a UPIN during your residency for some of the reasons mentioned previously; having a permanent address, having plenty of time to complete the process etc.
The UPIN is assigned by CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services).It is a six-character alphanumeric code identifying you as a Medicare provider.Each individual practitioner receives one UPIN, regardless of the number of practice settings he or she works in. You will keep this UPIN throughout your Medicare affiliation, regardless of the state or states you practice in. CMS uses the UPIN to identify the ordering and referring physician, to aggregate payment and utilization information for individual practitioners, to ensure compliance with contractor recommendations for sanctions, and to validate duplicate services.
Board certification is evidence that you have successfully completed an approved educational and training program and passed a rigorous evaluation process. It demonstrates that you are prepared to provide quality patient care in your specialty. We highly recommend you get board certified because employers are increasingly demanding that you have it.
It's also just as important that you keep your certification current. All certificates issued by members of the ABMS (American Board of Medical Specialties®) are time limited. The limits range from six to 10 years, depending on the board and specialty.

Searching for Jobs Online
Searching for jobs online is easier than ever, but also more confusing than ever. Any Internet user doing a job search online will find that they can choose from hundreds of national employment listing web sites and the numbers can often be staggering. When performing on online job search, it is a good idea to choose from an online employment classified web site that allows for regional searching. Localized searches can narrow down employment opportunities so that the job searcher doesn't have to search through hundreds or even thousands of posts in order to locate a handful of listings in an individual's local area. When performing an Internet job search, it is important to keep in mind that not all local employers will post job listings online, but they will post their openings in local newspapers. Most newspapers allow for an online job search in their classified sections if the newspaper is also available for viewing the Internet.

Petite Modeling: is There a Career for You?
PEtite modeling is a tough industry to break into. Especially since most modeling agencies won't represent models unless they're 5 feet and 9 inches tall or taller.

Oil, Lube and Filter Employee Pay
We have been studying the labor rates of Oil, Lube and Filter Quick Lube Facilities and we are finding that the pay is lower than you might expect. We also believe this is part of the problem with recruiting and retaining key employees. The average employee at a Quick Lube is a little under $7.00, which is lower than you would expect and certainly lower than the customer is thinking you are paying. This maybe why the average employee only stays employed about 1.8 years and then leaves for greener employment.

Career Advice: Are Resumes Obsolete As A Primary Job Search Tool?
In a day of background checks, pre-employment drug screening and multiple interviews, where do resumes fit in? According to many successful job applicants, not very well.

Other cover letters are sufficiently interesting that I will file them away and review them later in the week, while others simply beg to be deleted immediately.
