Physician NonClinical Careers with John Jurica

Dec 13, 2022

Working remotely has become all the rage, with its potential advantages of adding flexibility and autonomy to our lives, avoiding office politics, and practical savings in fuel and automobile maintenance costs.

But there are some real downsides that can occur. Today’s guest is Frieda Wiley, Pharm. D., who worked as a chemist before pursuing her pharmacy doctorate.

Like many of you, she was attracted to the idea of working remotely. She started doing that part-time, but eventually went full-time. And she discovered that there were challenges to working remotely that caused negative mental and physical health consequences.

Those consequences led her to transition from remote clinical work to freelance medical writing. Then she leveraged her writing skills and her experiences to write a book called: Telecommuting Psychosis: From Surviving to Thriving While Working in Your Pajama Pants.

During the podcast, we discuss her work as a medical writer, and some of the lessons she wrote about in her new book.
