  • Written for physicians considering how to leverage their MD and to enhance their professional fulfillment
  • Suitable for readers at any point in their medical career, from practitioners to medical students
  • Looks at benefits of pursuing an additional, non-medical degree
  • Presents wide range of non-medical settings in which physicians can lead and  contribute:  business, public service, education, law, organized medicine
  • 10 fascinating profiles of physicians who have distinguished themselves professionally outside of traditional settings 
  • Common sense advice on work-life balance, mentorship, and the relationship between personality and job satisfaction 

Increasingly, physicians are leveraging their medical training and expertise to pursue careers in non-traditional arenas.  Their goals are diverse: 

 

·         Explore consulting as a way to improve patient care

·         Lay the foundation for a career in academic medicine

·         Provide leadership in healthcare

·         Strengthen ties between a clinic and the community

·         Broaden one’s experience as a medical student

·         As a journalist or writer, open a window onto medicine for non-experts

 

Some physicians will pursue another degree, while others may not, in anticipation of moving into public service, business, education, law, or organized medicine. Their common ground is the desire to enhance their professional fulfillment.

 

Drs. Urman and Ehrenfeld’s book features individual chapters on the wide array of non-traditional careers for physicians, each one written by an outstanding leader in medicine who him- or herself has successfully forged a unique career path.  A final chapter brings together fascinating brief profiles – “case studies” – of physicians who have distinguished themselves professionally outside of traditional settings. 

 

Suitable for readers at any point in their medical career – practitioners, fellows, residents, and medical students – who want to explore possibilities beyond traditional medical practice, the book also sets out common-sense advice on topics such as work-life balance, mentorship, and the relationship between personality and job satisfaction.
