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.
