Physiatrists who want to augment their current practice or continue to use their medical knowledge to work in a professional setting outside of patient care have a variety of options. This course is geared towards physiatrists with world-renowned faculty introducing participants to the broad range of alternative career paths available to physiatrists interested in drastically changing career direction and/or simply diversifying their practice. It will cover areas still connected to clinical medicine (e.g., telemedicine), some more removed from medicine (e.g., financial industry), as well as several hybrids (e.g., medico-legal, disability reviews, etc.), and will help you identify what options will work best for your personal interests and needs. This course will prepare and equip you to make decisions regarding alternative career opportunities that are best suited for you.
At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the various alternative career opportunities available to them in order to augment their current practice or change their professional setting all together.
- Identify areas of interest outside their clinical settings and link them to potential career opportunities.
- Compare and evaluate their current career path against alternative paths to design a path that is specific to their needs and goals.

"Join us to explore the multitude of other ways to use your medical degree as a physiatrist, whether you aim to become completely non-clinical or just add a non-clinical dimension to your current practice. This course will provide an in-depth look at such possibilities as medical writing, informatics, physician advising, and more." — Dr. Varghese-Kroll
