The transition from residency to unsupervised practice is a time of increased stress and burnout for physicians. Early data suggests the challenges faced by new practitioners mostly concern non-medical expert areas of practice. How can the transition to practice be understood and then improved? Recent graduates from the UBC General Internal Medicine residency program were sampled to explore the challenges they faced and the solutions they found as they moved from residency to unsupervised practice. Data was analyzed using thematic analysis and was viewed through the theoretical lens of communities of practice. I will present the findings of my MHPE thesis from Maastricht University.
