Product Description:
Career changes are becoming common among professionals in recent years. Many physicians may want to change direction, but often do not know whether it is the right thing to do or if pursuing a career outside of clinical practice would achieve their professional goals. Doctors have the training and education to contribute to society in many beneficial ways in addition to traditional clinical practice. Yet, there is no formal mapped-out route for doctors who want to pursue alternative careers, which is where Careers Beyond Clinical Medicine comes in.

Doctors at any stage, from early in training to mid-career, to nearing retirement, can use Careers Beyond Clinical Medicine to clearly evaluate the issues involved when considering a career change. This book shows physicians how they can serve society and patients in innovative ways, and make a notable impact on health care delivery, policy and quality when they use their medical background in a non-traditional career pursuit. The numerous unadvertised opportunities for physicians are explored and a step-by-step route with practical advice for finding the best career is described.

Recent advances in healthcare technology, medical science, patient education require physicians to play new roles that have not traditionally been well-defined. Doctors can innovate and have a long-term productive impact on healthcare in the United States and throughout the world if they learn to seize the non-traditional career opportunities available to physicians, or even create a new way to fill a void in health care. Careers Beyond Clinical Medicine helps illuminate that path.

Please also visit Physician Renaissance Network at PRNresource.com for comprehensive information about non-clinical careers for physicians, physician career change, physician consulting, and physician entrepreneurism. FROM THE AUTHOR: In 2001 I did something deemed unthinkable by my peers; I left my plastic surgery practice to begin working in a non-clinical career, medical communications. At first I knew nothing about the large number of non-clinical careers for physicians, or where to find out about them. Most importantly, I did not know any non-clinical physicians working in these industries. Going through a physician career change was completely foreign territory Now, as co-owner of a medical communications company, I am exposed to various types of non-clinical careers for physicians and speak with many clinicians who are interested in their own physician career change. Although I once considered myself an anomaly, I now have a better sense of the growing number of physicians in non-clinical careers and the endless opportunities available. I wrote this book and speak about physician career change and non-clinical careers for physicians to help others avoid the obstacles I faced. BACK COVER: "Physicians are used to linear career paths, formalized educational programs, and textbooks. Our careers typically progress through a predictable series of decision points, each complete with a road map for the next several years and a bibliography of recommended reading. Stepping out of a clinical career path can open up an endless set of options with no road map - a seemingly daunting proposition for the physician mindset." EXCERPTS: "I felt stuck for so long, as though I had spent most of my life moving in the wrong direction. I was frustrated with myself. How could I become so trapped?" "Leaving clinical practice was like finally breaking the surface and emerging into the sunlight after holding my breath under water for years." "My career transition was liberating. For the first time since starting medical school, I was extremely excited about my future career path. Interestingly, medical communications would draw upon my knowledge from the past. Leaving clinical practice would not mean that my past efforts in medicine would be thrown away. I was not going to be "wasting all those years of training."

    When Tanya Ward Goodman came home to New Mexico to visit her dad at the end of 1996, he was fifty-five years old and just beginning to show symptoms of the Alzheimer's disease that would kill him six years later. Early onset dementia is a shock and a challenge to every family, but the Wards were not an ordinary family. Ross Ward was an eccentric artist and collector whose unique museum, Tinkertown, brought visitors from all over the world to the Sandia Mountains outside Albuquerque. In this book Tanya tells Ross's story and her own, sharing the tragedy and the unexpected comedy of caring for this funny, stubborn man who remained a talented artist even as he changed before his family's eyes.
