#95. Should a Doctor Go Into Academics or Private Practice?
I tell my residents that academics is about depth and private practice is about breadth. In a lot of specialist fields, the private practice opportunities can provide some of that breadth. What you choose really depends on your preferences and how you feel you can work best in a given environment when weighed against all the factors that are important to you. But at the end of the day: when choosing a job, make sure you think through the worst-case scenario before saying “yes”. You’ll Learn: A tool I use with my coaching clients to help you think through any job decision An in-depth perspective about the benefits (and drawbacks) of going into academics as well as joining private practice  Physician-specific finance and career factors you should consider as you’re making your job decisions Want to learn more about money?

#94. How Virtual Assistants Can Benefit Doctors
I'm a big fan of delegating tasks and freeing up my time so that I can focus on what I need to focus on in my business. And finding work-life balance (or life-life balance as some people like to call it) is one of the most common things doctors want. But how do we go about finding that? Enter virtual assistants for doctors.  They could be just the solution for many doctors on the road to burnout by assisting with scheduling, pre-authorizations, paperwork, and more. If you're a doctor who doesn’t know what a VA is or how they can help you get back some of your time (or potentially make you more money), this one’s for you.

#93. The Benefits of a Roth IRA for Doctors
Everyone has heard of a backdoor Roth IRA, but what’s the big deal with Roth IRA’s anyway? Today, Dr. Lisha Taylor and I are going to be talking about Roth IRA money for physicians. This is an important topic because doctors often need to use any tax-advantaged space they can get their hands on since we normally have a high savings rate. So join us today to learn what a Roth IRA is and why you should seriously consider one as a physician.  Also check out this Step by Step Guide to a Backdoor Roth IRA at Vanguard → https://thephysicianphilosopher.com/guides/first-backdoor-roth-on-vanguard/ Want to learn more about what do to with the money you are making as a physician?

#92. How Burned-Out Doctors Can Thrive in a Broken Medical System (Determined Book Release)
Physicians often reach out to me for advice about whether they should quit being a physician. I have a hard time giving advice on that subject because it seems like there are really only two options. The first option is to tough it out and finish what you started. The second option is to follow your dreams, even if they lead you away from medicine. So how do you know which path to take?  Chelsea Turgeon wrote the book on it - literally. Listen to this week's episode of the Physician Philosopher podcast to learn more about her story and the framework she created for deciding if a career in medicine is right for you long term, or if you should consider pivoting out of the medical field entirely.  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/life-after-medicine/id1578778554 https://www.facebook.com/groups/leavemedicine/

#88. How Burned-Out Doctors Can Thrive in a Broken Medical System (Determined Book Release)
This episode is different from our typical episodes on The Physician Philosopher Podcast.  Today, I have something special that I want to share with you, and I want you to share this episode with all of your friends in medicine. My biggest goal is to empower doctors while also fixing our broken medical system. And one of the ways that  I am going to achieve that goal is by sharing tools and strategies with all physicians in a manner that is  easily accessible. This is why I’ve spent hundreds or maybe even a thousand hours creating the idea and then writing, editing, and working on my book.  And it is finally published as of the very day that this episode became live.   In fact, you can buy the book for just 99 CENTS…. But that will only last for the first week after the book is published. In this episode, I am going to read the introduction to the book I’ve been working on for the last year and I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Please tune in and share this episode with your family and friends. I want to say  “thank you” to all of the loyal listeners of The Physician Philosopher Podcast! I appreciate all of your emails.  And I appreciate you showing up each week to listen to the show. So, enjoy watching/ listening to this special episode of the podcast. 👉 Get your copy of Determined: How Burned-Out Doctors Can Thrive in a Broken Medical System - https://thephysicianphilosopher.com/determined

#87. Can Money Buy Doctors Happiness?
Did you hear I recently purchased a third car??  All the science says this is the dumbest thing in the world to do…but is it? Join me on this week's Podcast talk about ways people can find happiness using money and what the studies say. I’m excited to announce that my new book, Determined: How Burned Out Doctors Can Thrive in a Broken Medical System, will be launching on JULY 19th. The book lays out an evidence-based framework to help doctors understand why they are so burned out in the first place. By reexamining current narratives, reactions, and paradigms, not only can doctors reclaim their sense of purpose and autonomy, but they can also create a life they love. Even if the medical system doesn’t love them back. Stay tuned for details!
