    Do You Want to Be a Medical Voice Over Professional?

    Do You Want to Be a Medical Voice Over Professional?

    Michael P. Cyll is a cardiac sonographer working in the Phoenix area for over 30 years. As he approached retirement from that clinical career, he developed an interest in narration and voice-over work, specializing in narration in the science, technical and medical fields.
    For the past year, he has been honing his voice-over skills and performing in a variety of freelance jobs, including audiobook narration, YouTube videos, and Zoom Theater productions.
    This is a new job option that I thought you’d like to hear about. So I brought Mike on the podcast to see what Mike can tell us about getting into this field.
    Based on our conversation, and listening to recordings by non-medical narrators, I believe that there is a need for voice-overs by knowledgeable clinicians. How many times have you heard a medication mispronounced on a radio or TV ad, or even in some type of educational video?
    I think it would be great if we had nurses and physicians familiar with medical terminology doing some of those narrations.
    Mike gave us a quick overview of his efforts to enter the field, and some pointers to get started. And I hope he inspired a few of you to start exploring this interesting field. 
    In addition to links to the resources Mike mentioned, I am including additional links that may benefit the listeners. Simply go to the show notes at nonclincalphysicians.com/medical-voice-over to access those links.

    Learn to Be an IME and Improve Your Life

    Learn to Be an IME and Improve Your Life

    Today I present a conversation with an internationally recognized speaker, best-selling author, mentor, and consultant who will teach you how to be an IME (independent medical examiner).
    Dr. Emily Woolcock is among the country’s most well-known and respected orthopedic surgeons. She is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and the American Board of Independent Medical Examiners.
    Dr. Woolcock founded businesses in Georgia, Florida, and Maryland, including the Orthopedic and Joint Replacement Institute, the Accident Rehabilitation Center, and National Orthopedic Consultants. In 2016 she established the IME Academy where students are taught to perform defensible, literature-based independent medical examinations.
    Emily is passionate about helping other physicians break free from the devastating work/life balance issues she experienced early in her career. As a wife and mother, she understands the struggles physicians and other healthcare professionals face as they become disenchanted by the changes in healthcare, and failed attempts at work/life balance.
    This is the first time I have had a guest with expertise in performing IMEs. IME consulting overlaps with what an expert witness might do. But it also involves examining patients, which some might find more compelling as a side job.
    Like expert witness work, it pays very well and you generally must continue to practice medicine.
    Emily dropped a lot of value-bombs. She clearly knows this topic well. If you’re interested in learning more about her IME course, you can find it at theimeacademy.com.
    I provide the IME Academy link and links to her books in the show notes at nonclincalphysicians.com/be-an-ime/

    How to Run Your Business and Master Your Finances

    How to Run Your Business and Master Your Finances

    For today’s interview, I have the pleasure of speaking with a fellow podcaster, and one of our Mentors on the Clinicians Career Cooperative.
    We’ll be discussing money issues, personal finance, coaching, podcasting, balancing a clinical and nonclinical job, and more.
    Today’s guest is the multitalented gastroenterologist Brent Lacey.  Dr. Lacey is passionate about his patients, and about helping physicians succeed with business and personal finances. 
    As a physician, he understands how overwhelming it can be to step out of clinical training and into a career. And he has seen firsthand the huge educational gap that exists in running a practice and managing money. 
    He has coached hundreds of families to eliminate debt. And he has spoken to physician groups around the country on topics related to business and personal finance. That's why he founded The Scope of Practice website, blog and podcast.  
    I found it enlightening to hear how Brent grew his coaching business. It seems there is an endless need for teaching professionals how to get a handle on their finances, run a better practice, and make time to devote to family.
    Brent is active on every big social media site: @businesscoachmd on Twitter, and @thescopeofpractice on Instagram. The easiest way to find his Facebook Group is to use this link: thescopeofpractice.com/facebookpage.
    I provide all the links in the show notes at nonclinicalphysicians.com/master-your-finances/

    5 Steps I Took to Be a Hospital Executive

    5 Steps I Took to Be a Hospital Executive

    In this week's show, I explain the 5 steps I took to go from practicing family physician to hospital CMO.
    I start by explaining why I believe hospital leadership is an excellent career. Then, I offer some personal stories as I describe 5 steps:
    Be curious and open to volunteering for committees adn projects; Engage one or more mentors; Try different part-time paid positions as pilots to see what interests you while gaining new skills; Get additional education and possibly certification or a new degree; Go for it, and ask for the job. My path spanned about 20 years. But you can compress what I did into a much shorter time frame. In the end, you will find a well-compensated position that enables you to have a huge impact on the healthcare provided to your community. 
    And if you're like me, you'll have fun doing it.
    The show notes for today's show can be found at nonclinicalphysicians.com/5-steps/

    Who Can Help When Private Practice Matters?

    Who Can Help When Private Practice Matters?

    Today’s guest is who you call when you're dealing with challenging private practice matters.
    Dr. Phil Boucher is a husband, a father of five, and a pediatrician in private practice in Lincoln, Nebraska.  He is very prolific, treating patients, educating parents, and helping his colleagues enjoy their clinical work.
    He has created an online presence for parents that includes a podcast and YouTube channel, all under the title “Raising Good Parents.”
    Phil graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. He also completed his pediatric residency at UNMC working at the Children's Hospital and Medical Center in Omaha. He then joined Lincoln Pediatrics Group and is now a partner.
    He loves practicing medicine. Yet, he cannot help but create and share solutions with physicians who are struggling with problems he’s overcome. So, he became a coach and consultant to other physicians addressing important private practice matters.
    And he solves a big problem that is important to physicians: time management. During our interview, he explains what he believes are two of the top ways to improve personal productivity. 
    He has even created a course that teaches his student physicians how to optimize these factors in their practices. It is called OnTime MD.
    You can find the links to all of Phil Boucher's activities and his online resources at nonclinicalphysicians.com/private-practice-matters.

    What Is the Newest Telemedicine-Supported Specialty?

    Today I have the pleasure of welcoming two guests who are experts in delivering one of the newest telemedicine-supported specialties.
    Today, we’ll be hearing from the President and the CIO of a company that hires physicians and provides in-person and remote wound care services. It was founded well over 10 years ago. And it uses technology, including telemedicine, to improve access and quality for patients who need wound care.

    The President of the company, John Sory, is also on today’s show. He will tell you about Vohra Wound Physicians, and to encourage you to check out a job with the company because it is expanding and recruiting physicians.
    If you’re thinking of pursuing a career that uses this technology, for all the reasons we discussed today, then you should definitely go to nonclinicalphysicians.com/woundcare to get more information about Vohra and its job opportunities.

Dr Jurica was one of the first physician led podcasts I have listened to. I must say it has expanded my knowledge of non-clinical careers and was a becaon of hop when I was in the midst of terrible burnout.

Dr Jurica never dissapoints with his amazing guests, friendly conversational style and continued excellent production.

Keep it up John! I've listened to every episode.
