Physician NonClinical Careers with John Jurica

Dec 22, 2020

In this week's show, I explain the 5 steps I took to go from practicing family physician to hospital CMO.

I start by explaining why I believe hospital leadership is an excellent career. Then, I offer some personal stories as I describe 5 steps:

  1. Be curious and open to volunteering for committees adn projects;
  2. Engage one or more mentors;
  3. Try different part-time paid positions as pilots to see what interests you while gaining new skills;
  4. Get additional education and possibly certification or a new degree;
  5. Go for it, and ask for the job.

My path spanned about 20 years. But you can compress what I did into a much shorter time frame. In the end, you will find a well-compensated position that enables you to have a huge impact on the healthcare provided to your community. 

And if you're like me, you'll have fun doing it.
