Hi - I'm Daniel Arag贸n.聽I help residents and fellows get great contracts.

[An Open Letter to the Resident and Fellow]

Transitioning from training to attending-hood is all about being purposeful.

Purposeful in your career decisions, contract negotiations, financial planning, work-life balance, professional development and personal fulfillment.

Being a purposeful聽physician is about embracing your career and your life.

We approach our work in a way that prioritizes balance, fulfillment, and ethical practice, rather than merely maximizing our financial gain.

Purposeful physicians聽don鈥檛 ask, "How can I make more money?"

They ask, "What kind of life do I want to lead?" and then seek out contracts and opportunities that support that life.

It鈥檚 not about getting more; it鈥檚 about finding what鈥檚 right for you.

We keep our careers balanced and rewarding 鈥 prioritizing fair terms and professional growth in our contracts.

Sometimes this means negotiating on our own, but often we get聽expert guidance for complex contract terms and conditions.

At the end of the day, what binds us together is a simple goal:

Obtain a contract that provides the freedom to practice medicine in a way that aligns with our values and aspirations鈥 and nothing that doesn鈥檛.
