John Jurica, MD, interviews Andrew about his new audiobook!

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 careers in hospital administration, medical writing, Pharma, and other areas.

John interviewed me a couple of years ago about locum tenens on his podcast. While locum tenens is not a "nonclinical" career, it is nontraditional. I found that locum tenens helped me achieve work/life balance without requiring that I abandon my clinical career. It also was a great assist in finding the perfect permanent position!

More recently, John and Tom Davis, MD, established Newscript, a private Facebook-style app dedicated to those exploring non-clinical careers. I'm lucky to serve as one of the "mentors" on Newscript. My role is to inform and respond to questions on locum tenens. You can learn more about Newscript here:

For Episode #244 of John's podcast, he interviewed me about creating the audiobook version of "The Locum Life: A Physician's Guide to Locum Tenens." We touched on many topics, including locums, work/life balance, the tech side of creating an audiobook, and even my passion for life under the sea.

My podcasting experience probably eased the way into creating the audiobook version of "The Locum Life," which was an enjoyable but challenging project! To date, over 100 audiobook copies sold!

During John's podcast, I gave a shout-out to some of the spectacular guests on my program, "The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner." These include Dave Combs, Christopher Loo, MD, Ben Nanney, CPA, Michelle Mudge-Riley, MD, Nichole Paskett of, and Michael Weisberg, MD.

I also got to talk about the great permanent job I've had for the last 5 years as Associate Professor of Neurology at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, TN. It's a privilege to have such a stimulating and engaging opportunity at a great university.

John and I talked for almost an hour! It was great fun!

As always, should you have any questions about locums, you can reach me at my website:, where you can also find many free resources.
