Good episode? Give it some love!
Interested in a nonclinical career, but not sure what options are out there? 
Need some ideas on where to start looking for a new career path?  
If you’d like to explore the many nonclinical physician career possibilities outside of medicine, this episode with John Jurica is for you. 
In This Episode of The Career Rx We’ll Discuss:
  • Career options that don’t require a license or board certification
  • Nonclinical physician roles in and outside the hospital setting
  • Medical writing, scientific communications, and the business of CME
Today I have a special guest, Dr. John Jurica, to answer some questions about potential non clinical career options. His expertise in the possibilities out there for doctors looking to change careers is highlighted on his podcast Physician NonClinical Careers where I’ve been a guest before as well. I also credit him with sparking the idea of starting this very podcast. 
By the end of this episode, you’ll have a clearer understanding of the variety of more flexible options out there for listeners like you looking to transition out of the clinical side of medicine.
