My friend and colleague, John Jurica, MD, producer of the always engaging Nonclinical Careers Podcast, interviewed me about locum tenens. John works as an urgent care physician, has been a CMO of a hospital, and has become an expert in helping physicians explore nonclinical careers. To this end, he just launched the Physician Nonclinical Career Academy. (While locum tenens is not a "nonclinical career," it is a nontraditional path that can lead some physicians to a better work/life balance and more joy in their careers. It worked for me!) If you have an interest in locum tenens you may find John's podcast helpful. Whether you are newly-graduated from residency, a mid-career physician looking to pay the bills, or a late-career physician who's not ready to retire, locum tenens offers an opportunity to practice medicine on your terms. Please check out the podcast here: https://nonclinicalphysicians.com/love-the-locum-life/. John's example is at least partly responsible for the creation of my new podcast and YouTube program, "The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner." John's a fascinating guy, and I'll be interviewing him for Episode #7 of The Art of Medicine, which will appear on May 17, 2020. Your comments are always welcome!
