    How Creative Writing Restores Vitality and Prevents Burnout

    How Creative Writing Restores Vitality and Prevents Burnout

    Claire Unis majored in creative writing and literature at Dartmouth College, where she wrote for and published a student newspaper. By senior year she had become a regular columnist in the daily school paper.
    While in medical school at UCSF, she enrolled in the MFA (master in fine arts) program at the U. of San Francisco, where she focused on writing memoirs and narrative nonfiction. She completed both degrees simultaneously.
    Now a practicing pediatrician, Claire is also a communication coach for clinicians in one of the largest medical groups in northern California. She teaches classes and mentors physicians as part of Sutter Medical Group's Clinician Wellbeing Program.
    She writes a weekly blog about doctoring. In her role as Literature in Medicine Champion, she also leads monthly book groups, a biweekly writing group, and biweekly discussions.
    And she has written a memoir about her experiences and feelings while becoming a physician. It would be a very nice resource for someone contemplating a medical career, as well as an enjoyable read. The book is called Balance, Pedal, Breathe: A Journey Through Medical School (this is an Amazon Affiliate Link).

    Why You Must Dare to Discover Your Purpose When You Retire

    Why You Must Dare to Discover Your Purpose When You Retire

    George Jerjian is the author of Dare to Discover Your Purpose: Retire, Refire, Rewire. Check it out at georgejerjian.com.
    George retired after being given just six months to live. Thankfully, his diagnosis was wrong. His retirement though was “hellish”.  
    A former financial advisor, George is now on a mission to help retirees create a plan for their later years which is about more than money.
    His book shows Baby Boomers that retirement doesn’t have to be a disappointment and gives them the tools, confidence, and a blueprint to make the most of later life.
    George’s innovative program is based on his own experience and years of research. In it, he challenges people to DARE to rebel against conventional approaches to retirement and live the life they’ve always dreamed of.
    A bonus for us is that his approach can also be used during your nonclinical career pivot, focusing on identifying your "ikigai."

    Capitalize on Nonprofit Board Membership and Strengthen Your Resume

    Capitalize on Nonprofit Board Membership and Strengthen Your Resume

    This week, I complete my presentation explaining how to capitalize on nonprofit board membership.
    There are 5 domains that cover most of those skills.
    Financial Management Data Management Business Management Leadership Talent Management I described each of them in Episode #254.
    In this episode, I explain how I used my volunteer experiences to obtain such skills beyond those developed during my medical training and clinical practice.
    For each, I describe specific experiences you can acquire while volunteering for a nonprofit. These skills are developed by actively participating in the following:
    Board of Directors Board Committees Non-board Committees And in each case, the best new skills can be obtained by serving as chair of the board, or committee.

    How Nonprofit Board Membership Can Be the Key to Leadership Experience

    How Nonprofit Board Membership Can Be the Key to Leadership Experience

    This week we return to a leadership and management topic.
    One challenge that must be faced when pursuing a nonclinical job, especially if it is a leadership or executive position, is demonstrating that you have the skills needed to be successful in that role.
    So, we start with that end in mind.
    Where do we get those skills, if they aren’t picked up in medical school or residency?
    Several places
    • Pre-medical school experiences
    • Post-residency experiences
    • By developing them doing clinical work – so-called transferable skills.
    What are the 5 areas that I’m talking about today?
    1. Financial Management Skills
    2. Data Management Skills
    3. Business Management Skills
    4. Leadership Skills
    5. Talent Management Skills
    Volunteering on a nonprofit board can provide many of those experiences.
    In Part 1 of this 2-part series, we begin by describing the 5 major domains of management skills that physicians often lack, with examples of each one. 
    Next week in Part 2, we will learn how to gain experience and learn those skills doing nonprofit board and committee work.

Best place to start for non-clinical career hunters

I have learned so much from Dr. Jurica and his podcasts. They are really informative and cover many inspiring stories of doctors who have successfully transitioned out of clinical medicine. I also recommend his Nonclinical Career Academy. It can really help you hone your career search down to the field that is best for YOU!! To top is all off John is incredibly accomplished himself. He is self-made with tons of experieince in many fields. He is an excellent tour guide through the world of nonclinical careers.

Episode 236

John Jurica has been a life-changing coach for many physicians who have felt very disaffected by the present state of medicine in this country.
His podcast was a joy for us to do. He has lived the non-clinical space. We highly recommend subscribing to his podcast.

Bunroe ,

Great resource and inspirational

John’s interviews really opened up my eyes to all the wonderful job opportunities as a physician and I’m very thankful for his wealth of knowledge. Highly recommend!
