The Career Rx Podcast for Doctors

The Career Rx Podcast for Doctors

You know you're not alone. Many doctors are frustrated by bureaucracy, stagnation, and burnout. If you're stuck on a career treadmill and your hard work isn't getting you the results you deserve, you need The Career Rx! This podcast is about modern business, branding, social media, and digital platforms to help physicians advance their careers. Grow your practice, build a successful physician side gig, achieve academic promotion, become a physician entrepreneur, and even transition to a nonclinical career. From the author of The Social Prescription (social media for doctors) and the creator of The Rx Series (business, public speaking, professional branding, and digital marketing for doctors), this podcast will help you do more of the work you love (and less of what you don't) by teaching you both timeless and modern career strategies that you don't learn in medical school. Finally, enjoy career success on your own terms with The Career Prescription podcast for doctors and other healthcare leaders.
