In it for the long haul
Time spent in the car can be productive. You just need some simple prep work.
Many retina practices have evolved in recent years to incorporate multiple offices, including satellite locations that often span wide geographic areas, in order to meet the demands of referring physicians and expanding patient populations. As a result, many retina specialists across the country contend with long commutes, either on a regular or rotating basis.
In contrast, most retina fellowship programs are geographically centered at a main academic hospital or institute. Even for programs that have satellite hospitals, fellows typically rotate through those remote locations only for a limited time interval. Because of this difference in geographic range, new retina practitioners typically face a period of adjustment during their transition into practice.
Here are some starter tips to help ensure a productive and safe commute.
