It is extremely common for young orthopaedic surgeons find themselves in unsatisfactory practice situations early in their careers. This article highlights several points to bear in mind when considering a change of employment in the first few years of practice. Many factors should be revisited from the candidate's initial job search to fully analyze the situation. If the problems are found to be irreconcilable, then the decision can be made to find a more suitable setting, but the relocation process should be handled judiciously. There are many resources available that can be helpful to make a successful transition.
