This week on MD for Moms, I’ll be interviewing opens in a new window Dr. Michelle Mudge-Riley of Physicians Helping Physicians about the process of transitioning from a clinical to a non-clinical career. Why would a physician stop practicing medicine and what alternatives do they have following training? How can a clinician change careers without losing out financially or otherwise? How much does burnout play into a person’s decision to leave medicine and why should patients be aware of burnout and care? This show sounds like it is focused on doctors, but it is actually applicable to anyone who has ever considered changing courses in life and wants some insight into how to make a change as easily as possible.
