Getting started on the path to a fulfilling career.


“I’m not sure where to start.”

It’s one of the most common things I hear from physicians who want to make a change in their career. Changing jobs, escaping from a toxic workplace, figuring out what you really want to do with your life… all this can be intimidating. Take it one step at a time. Start with the resources below.

Do some soul searching


Read about the steps to making a career change. Consider how your skills can translate to another job or field. Start taking action to build your personal brand. If you’re used to spending your days seeing a clinic full of patients, broaden your perspective of the value you can bring to health and medicine.


Find your niche


Having done some soul-searching, figure out where your skills and interests fit best. Take a look at some non-clinical career profiles. Give some thought to being a medical director, physician advisor, or working in pharma. Or maybe even starting your own business.

Go after your goals


Finally, take action on your goals. Build a strong resume and know what you’re worth. Great opportunities may not fall into your lap, but you can increase your chances of finding them by using your resources and time wisely. Fulfilling career, here you come.
