Practice management and residency training


Fam Pract Manag. 1998 Jun;5(6):11.

To the Editor:

Thank you for your concise articles about issues in primary care that affect me. As a young family physician just out of residency, I need all the information I can get to make sense of the part of medicine I was not prepared for in medical school.

To the Editor:

I continue to be impressed with the quality of this publication. It's easy to read and has pragmatic content.

Have you considered a discounted subscription rate for residents? It's a great resource for teaching practice management.
