DocWorking: The Whole Physician Podcast. Doctors devote their lives to caring for others, but the time has come to prioritize the health and wellness of physicians. As physicians, we make decisions every day about how to prioritize our time, energy, focus, attention, and money. Our lives are in our own hands. But are we making these as conscious choices or are we satisfied with speeding through life in default mode? Hosts Jen Barna MD, Coach Gabriella Dennery MD and Master Certified Coach Jill Farmer interview physicians to explore ways to embrace life AND a medical career, some who’ve chosen a path less traveled and others who have optimized their lives on a traditional medical career path. As coaches from the DocWorking team, Gabriella and Jill discuss actionable tips from their experience coaching physicians. We also invite guests on business, leadership, building financial independence, and other pertinent topics to physicians. If you’re a physician, we want to hear your story!

“It’s a two and half page sheet with the 70 non-clinical careers that I’m aware of. There’s actually more than 70 but it has a resource for each. So if you haven’t had your mind blown yet about what’s out there, that’s the easiest thing to do.” -John V. Jurica, MD, MPH, CPE
In today’s episode, Dr. Jen Barna talks to Dr. John Jurica about non-clinical careers.
John Jurica is a board-certified family physician who began doing non-clinical side jobs early in his career as UM physician advisor and occupational medicine medical director. He then transitioned to hospital administration, first as VP for Medical Affairs, and then as Chief Medical Officer. Today, he shares his wealth of knowledge about non-clinical careers for physicians as well as sharing his own journey as a physician and how he transitioned into non-clinical careers. If you are interested in a non-clinical career or a side gig, this is the episode for you. Dr. Jurica also offers our listeners some helpful resources which are listed below!

Dr. Jurica completed a master’s degree in public health while in practice, and certification as a physician executive (CPE) through the American Association for Physician Leadership. He left his CMO position to partner in an urgent care start-up in 2014, where he continues to serve as owner and medical director.
In 2017, John started producing the weekly Physician Nonclinical Careers Podcast, where he presents interviews with physician entrepreneurs, medical directors, hospital executives, managers, coaches and other experts in physician career transition. His podcast was listed as a Feedspot Top 20 Physicians Podcasts You Must Follow in 2020 and 2021.
In 2018, he created the Nonclinical Career Academy (nonclincalcareeracademy.com), an online educational platform with individual courses and a membership site designed to help physicians accelerate their career pivots.
Dr. Jurica and Dr. Tom Davis recently launched NewScript, an online community of healthcare professionals, career transition mentors, and wellness specialists helping each other live a better life. It is a private, uncensored, and ad-free space that incorporates a forum, daily posts, mentorship programs, online courses, livestream events and interviews with clinicians who have transitioned to a nontraditional career.

At DocWorking, our specialty is Coaching Physicians to achieve the best in life and medicine.
Doctors devote their lives to caring for others. But does that mean they must sacrifice their own health and wellbeing? Absolutely not!
At DocWorking, we have developed a unique way to embrace it all.
The caring for others that you do so selflessly AND the caring for YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY that you crave in order to bring it all into the perfect balance specific to YOU.
What if we told you that you CAN have it all? The career you dreamed of when you decided to become a doctor AND the life outside of medicine that you desire?
DocWorking empowers physicians to get back on the path to achieving their dreams.
Preparing for your board exam or looking for a quick and convenient way to earn CME? Study for your board exam and fulfill your CME requirements with BoardVitals. BoardVitals is the leading online board review platform, with question banks and CME activities available in more than 50 medical and healthcare specialties.
Working in the medical field is fulfilling but it can also be exhausting. Physicians often sacrifice their personal time to carry out their duties. They want to go on vacations, start passion projects, or start side businesses but finding the time seems impossible. Recently, more and more physicians are giving outsourcing a try. Outsourcing allows you to delegate tasks to virtual assistants so you can free up your time and finally do whatever it is you’ve been wanting to do.
We at DocWorking are excited to collaborate with Dr. Armin Feldman to bring you this opportunity to develop a side income or even a full time income while using your clinical skills!
Change your trajectory: build financial independence and strength by working with our trusted resources. Working with a trusted financial planner and/or financial advisor can help you to create a specific plan that works for you. The right advisor can help you stay on track to reach your financial independence goal and your next vision.
Doctors and their families need many types of insurance–and inadequate coverage can cost you dearly. Connecting with trusted insurance professionals in your area is recommended to be sure you’re appropriately covered.
