My friend and colleague, John Jurica, MD, interviewed me for his always engaging Nonclinical Careers Podcast. John's background includes work as a family physician, an urgent care doc, and a hospital CMO. During the past few years, Dr. Jurica has become an expert in helping physicians and other healthcare providers transition to nonclinical careers. A couple of years ago, he launched the Physician Nonclinical Career Academy, which provides resources for those considering care

Please join me for a fun-filled discussion with Robin Dickinson, MD, creator of “Dr. Robin’s School,” an online pre-medical school for children curious about human physiology. Dr. Dickinson is a board-certified family physician whose teaching career began in the third grade—when she was a third-grade student! Tasked with tutoring the worst math student in the class, she discovered that helping others learn was challenging, fun, and satisfying. Dr. Dickinson continued to indul
Many thanks to Ken Sommerville, MD, an old friend and colleague, who discussed his 30 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9yjo5IbMNw When I was in training, my academic mentors considered Pharma the “dark side” with the implication that such a career was unworthy of a physician with Oslerian aspirations. Ken provided welcome enlightenment on this narrow perspective. A colleague’s unexpected invitation prompted Dr. Sommerville t
Since the publication of The Locum Life: A Physician's Guide to Locum Tenens, I've received requests for an audiobook version. I've written 4 books but never published an audiobook. Although more people read traditional print books than listen to audiobooks, the audiobook market is growing by leaps and bounds. I figured I'd give it a try and narrate the text myself. It turns out that recording an audiobook takes a lot more than just reading into a microphone. First, there are

These are now available on the most popular podcast players, such as Apple, Google, Spotify, Stitcher, Pandora, and others (see image below).

My friend and fellow podcaster, John Jurica, MD, reviewed "nine excellent books" on his podcast for physicians considering a pivot to nonclinical or nontraditional careers. While I haven't read all the books on his list, I did write one of them! John was kind enough to include "The Locum Life: A Physician's Guide to Locum Tenens."
John's weekly podcasts are always interesting and frequently accompany me on my early morning jogs. Feedspot listed his podcast as one of the top
I am thrilled that my new podcast, "The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner," was named by Feedspot.com as one of the "Top 20 Physician Podcasts You Must Follow in 2020." The ranking depended on relevancy, frequency, social media follower counts, engagement, domain authority, age, Alexa Web Traffic Range, and other criteria. It was great being on the same list with some of my favorite podcasts like "Physician Nonclinical Careers," "The ZDoggMD Show," and "Doctors Unbound."
Whether fate placed them on the frontlines or sidelines of the Coronavirus battle, physicians have been forced to reassess their careers and long-term goals.
