American Medical News mentions NonClinicalJobs.com
I was recently interviewed for an article that's now up on the American Medical News (published by the American Medical Association or AMA). The article is titled, "Job-hunting in a recession: It may take some searching." The article highlights how the recession is taking a toll in the physician job hunting community. Towards the bottom of the article, you'll see a discussion about non-clinical job opportunities for physicians who wish to leave clinical practice.
Since launching this website (nonclinicaljobs.com), I've been approached by numerous medical students, residents, and attending physicians who are exploring various types of non-clinical opportunities. Some are looking for part-time supplemental income. Others are looking for a career switch. A few months ago when I wrote a post about non-clinical mentorship, I was flooded by e-mails from people who were eager to receive some assistance with a career transition into the non-clinical sector of healthcare. The social network "Non-Clinical Healthcare Professionals" continues to grow with new members every week. This tells me that there is a strong and growing interest among physicians to find some non-clinical jobs.
