We recently had a new member of our group quit after only four months. I as well as other partners personally liked the guy, we have several young "fun" partners, and we feel that we tried to help this individual fit it and learn the ropes so to speak Admittedly our group can be stressfull at time with multiple locations, supervising 30 cases a day just after residency etc, but we feel this new member did not give it a chance. We have a good relationship with most of the surgeons, good vacation, salary, benefits, etc. There really is no reason to not at least give it a year. So, to you new graduates, realize that the first six months are going to be hard, but it DOES get better. If you never give it more than a few months to feel good about it you will constantly be jumping around.
