Podcasts as career tools for physicians

Author: Michelle Mudge-Riley, DO, MHA

Do you like listening to podcasts? If you’re like me, you like the idea that podcasts can add to your efficiency. You can listen to them in the car or on the treadmill. But it’s hard to know which ones are any good, right? I’m always looking for new suggestions. I’m especially excited to hear about interesting FREE podcasts that give me tools to make my life easier.

Here are several good podcasts that offer tools for almost every doctor at any stage of his or her career. These podcasts discuss issues for both practicing doctors and doctors interested in non-clinical careers.

ReachMD offers a great podcast series and often hosts the founder of (Dr. Joseph Kim) to talk about various subjects from social media to healthcare IT to non-clinical careers. Click here to listen to some of his recordings.

Cejka Search offers a series of podcasts aimed at physicians interested in physician executive careers and the recruiting process. Download their podcasts titled, "Physician and Health Care Executive Careers and Recruitment Podcast" on iTunes.

PrivatePracticeMD is a new podcast series.
