From the Back Cover:

Is it so? Can it be true? Do I really want to leave the medical profession? Maybe these feelings will go away? If I ever stopped being a physician, what else could I be? Would I be happy doing something else for a living? How would my family respond to such a change? Who can I talk to about this?

What do I do next?

If you've ever thought about leaving patient care - or felt it was time to find a whole new career outside of medicine - you recognize the doubts, questions, and concerns associated with the idea of not being a doctor.

However, you are not alone. As dramatic changes continue to alter the course of health care, and competitive pressures mount, many physicians question if they've made the right career choice. They wonder if it's possible to just let go and give up years of hard work as a doctor.

There are no easy answers or quick-fix remedies to this dilemma. For many physicians, it can be a real crisis. Some become angry or depressed. Others worry about burning out. They all face a series of emotional ups and downs.

Leaving the Bedside is a guide that can help you make informed career decisions. the publication is divided into three sections that are designed to help you find satisfying, successful work.

Part 1, Considering a Change, helps you assess your personal values and skills.

Part 2, Nonclinical Career Opportunities for Physicians, helps you explore career options.

Part 3, Taking the Next Step, helps you formulate an action plan for finding a new career.

You'll find information, guidance, and direction you need to bring your career into focus in Leaving the Bedside.
