CME Credit Hours: 1

Medical degrees permit career opportunities within ambulatory care settings, hospitals, public health, research, business, and science institutes. Because of the wide array of job opportunities, physicians often transition within the world of clinical medicine as well as outside of the clinical realm at some point during their careers. The risks, benefits, and motivation and need for job transitions can be vague, leading to a need for a rational, structured process that enables physicians to have and maintain fulfilling careers. This session will provide surgeons pragmatic, real world advice on structured methods to identify decision-making processes during career transitions.


At the end of our session, participants should be able to:
  1. Determine advantages of new clinical or non-clinical positions.
  2. Identify disadvantages (both economic and personal) in changing positions.
  3. Establish practices to attain career satisfaction within and outside of your organization.
  4. Identify and assess career satisfaction afforded through non-clinical MD positions.
