    In this episode, John provides an overview of the upcoming Nonclinical Career Summit, being held on April 16, 17 and 18, 2024. This is a live event, offering 4 lectures with a Q&A over 50-minute sessions each evening.
    This year’s content starts with a focus on discovering whether it is possible to remain in clinical medicine when faced with dissatisfaction or outright burnout while in practice. Several lectures are dedicated to ways to provide medical care that is fulfilling and meaningful while maintaining control and balance in the clinician’s life.
    Several specific examples of cash-only practices and health-related businesses, such as a weight loss clinic, MedSpa, and Infusion Lounge are presented. And there is a focus on protecting yourself legally while creating an asset that can be sold at the appropriate time.
    Finally, four nonclinical part-time side gigs are discussed, including 3 types of popular freelance consulting businesses and using real estate investing as another strategy for generating income and creating assets.

Prior to becoming a physician, she was a family nurse practitioner. Kimberly Lowe, BSN received her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing in 2015. With over 15 years of experience, she has practiced in a wide variety of settings.
    Four years ago, Dr. Allen and Kimberly Lowe discovered that they both had a vision for creating a clinic experience with an upbeat, joyful atmosphere that would bring in the latest in unique medical treatments. So they created their Infusion Lounge where they offer integrative medicine services that encompass diet and lifestyle medicine.
    Their clinics today are recognized as the most refreshing medical offices in their part of Missouri, offering services in regenerative medicine, FDA-approved non-medicinal pain management treatments, bio-identical hormone optimization, anti-aging skincare, body sculpting, and other med-spa services.
    In today’s interview, Jennifer and Kimberly describe what an Infusion Center is, and how they built their network of clinics over the past 4 years. They provide insights for other clinicians thinking about venturing into the world of medical and spa-like services outside of the traditional high-volume, insurance-driven medical-industrial complex.

    Dr. Chelsea Turgeon provided a fantastic lecture for last year’s Nonclinical Summit. As I was preparing for this year’s 2024 Summit in April, I thought you would genuinely appreciate hearing part of that presentation here on the podcast.
    She starts by explaining how she recognized her poor fit for a career in medicine in medical school and residency. Much of it was because of her need to meet the expectations of others in her life, rather than pursuing her passions. But the longer she stayed in medicine, the more miserable she became.
    What began as a 5-week leave of absence became a permanent exit from her OB/gyne residency. She goes on to describe her journey, first teaching English in South Korea, to becoming a Digital Nomad, starting her own business, and generating a six-figure income while living in 20 different countries.
    She finishes her presentation by describing how she and others found meaningful work while living the most interesting and fulfilling life she could imagine.
