Travel this week: Boston, MA; Richmond, VA; Washington D.C.

I normally don't travel much for work. However, this is an unusual week where I'll be traveling quite a bit. I'll be flying to Boston, MA for a day. Then, I'll be on a train headed to Richmond, VA for a day. Then, I'll be in a car driving to Washington D.C. for a day. Fortunately, I'll be at home every night this week, so I'll get to sleep in my own bed.

Many non-clinical jobs require a significant amount of work-related travel, so make sure you know how much travel will be required before you sign any employment contracts. I've known quite a few physicians who've gotten burned out from traveling so much that they quit after less than 12 months of employment. Travel can be a significant burden if you're still required to keep up with your work when you're out of the office.
