I had a great time talking with John on his podcast, Physician Non Clinical Careers! I've been a listener since the beginning and the knowledge and inspiration I've gained from his podcast definitely played a role in my own non-clinical transition. 

Hopefully you found our conversation helpful, inspiring, and actionable. If this was your first episode, I encourage you to subscribe to the podcast and listen to his other interviews. 

We discussed my personal transition away from patient care after 5 years as a PA; three years of neurosurgery and almost two years of psychiatry. My ‘secret?' A popular topic on John's podcast – medical writing. 

I've been working with various companies creating CME, board review, and other MedEd content ever since I graduated from PA school. Partly for ‘extra' income (read: the only way I could pay off my student loans) and partly to ensure I got – and stayed – up to speed in my clinical life. 

This is how Modern MedEd started – and how it became my full-time job. My business is to help you advance in your career, clinically or non-clinically.

That's why we've put together this resource page consisting of non-clinical jobs, side gigs and ideas for extra income for physicians, and amazing CME.
