While traditional clinical practice is the most common practice option, it's certainly not the only practice option. In fact, many opportunities exist for physicians to use their knowledge and skills, such as in academic medicine, administration, and research. What's more, smaller but established (and, in some cases, expanding) fields such as aerospace medicine, public health and service, journalism and communications, and consulting offer additional career options. And new options and opportunities are emerging through a recent trend in doctorpreneurship.
Understanding who you are empowers you to be creative in crafting a career that maximizes the synergy of your personal strengths and attributes with your specific medical knowledge and skills. Feel free to think outside the box!
