Physician NonClinical Careers with John Jurica

May 11, 2021

Welcome back Nonclinical Nation. Today we're going back to basics. But before we get too far into today’s monologue, I would like to ask a favor of you.

As stated in the opening, this is episode 195, which means that we are rapidly approaching EPISODE 200. I can’t believe it. Two hundred weekly episodes – almost 4 years of consistent content.

I want to do something special for my 200th episode. I’d like to find out what, if any, impact this podcast has had on YOU. So, here is what I would like to do (but it depends on YOU to help me out).

I’d love to hear how the podcast has positively impacted you in some way. Even in some SMALL way.

Maybe you found a coach or updated your resume, or decided to start your own business. Or maybe you just felt inspired by a guest who reminded YOU of YOU.

This is what I want you to do:

Think about the answers to these 2 questions:

  1. What inspired or helped you – a topic, a guest’s story or advice, maybe even a product or service you heard about on the podcast?
  2. What was the upshot of that inspiration, information, or advice? What action did you take and what was the positive RESULT, if any?

Then go to and record your comments in a 2-to-4-minute voice message.

And it’s OPTIONAL, but you can give your name if you like; and if you have a website to promote, mention it too.

You can listen and re-record the message as many times as you like before sending it, so don’t worry about recording the perfect message the first time.

Now, let me explain what prompted me to choose today's topic.

I was recently reminded that not everyone listening to this podcast has been with us since the beginning. It is very easy for me to go deep into a very specific topic with a guest or on a solo episode like this, rather than revisit a basic question such as “How do I begin my career search?”

So, I put together this list of low-cost starting points to begin your research if you're new to this. Here is the outline listing the resources that I describe in today's episode:
