physicians and other medical professionals in the midst of their careers  either in a clinical setting or a nonclinical job.

Practice medicine can be exciting. But a cycle of work – sleep – repeat gets old quickly, even if you love the work you’re doing. It’s perfectly acceptable to want something more out of your career. This might be:

  • Better work-life balance
  • The opportunity to make a difference within your organization or community
  • A job change that challenges you in a different way
  • The flexibility to work from home
  • Reaching financial independence so that work is optional

By being proactive, you can cultivate a professional life that is a true source of joy rather than frustration.
