How Healthcare Providers Can Overcome Burnout Through Non-Clinical Careers, with John Jurica
In this week’s episode, I am joined by Dr. John Jurica, MD, MPH, CPE, a family physician with a long history of doing non-clinical work. John was part-time medical director for a family planning clinic and an occupational medicine clinic. He worked as part-time VP for Medical Affairs and full-time Chief Medical Officer at a nonprofit hospital south of Chicago, Illinois for 14 years (total). He left that job to partner with other investors to open an urgent care center, where he serves as medical director. In 2017, he started the weekly Physician Nonclinical Careers Podcast, with 245 episodes so far. John is the co-founder of NewScript, a membership for licensed clinicians with a community, free live streams, and recorded videos, interviews, and other resources to help them thrive in today’s healthcare environment, accessible on desktop or phone app. John now devotes most of his time to mentoring, coaching, and teaching physicians how to find and secure nontraditional jobs based on their medical backgrounds and knowledge of the healthcare system in the U.S. and abroad.
John and I discuss his journey in healthcare, pivoting directions in his career, and what’s currently happening in the industry in terms of burnout & the pandemic.
