The Physician Philosopher Podcast

Sep 5, 2022

I tell my residents that academics is about depth and private practice is about breadth. In a lot of specialist fields, the private practice opportunities can provide some of that breadth. What you choose really depends on your preferences and how you feel you can work best in a given environment when weighed against all the factors that are important to you.

But at the end of the day: when choosing a job, make sure you think through the worst-case scenario before saying “yes”.

You’ll Learn:

  • A tool I use with my coaching clients to help you think through any job decision
  • An in-depth perspective about the benefits (and drawbacks) of going into academics as well as joining private practice 
  • Physician-specific finance and career factors you should consider as you’re making your job decisions
