The medical landscape has changed dramatically in recent years and subsequently competition for coveted medical positions is at unprecedented levels.
The impact of these changes has been felt at all stages of the medical career lifecycle and as such doctors now find that they need to proactively manage, plan and review their careers to achieve their potential in a career pathway that aligns with their needs and skills, while leveraging their strengths and interests.
In many professions, it is a very normal and common occurrence to think after a period of time, ‘I am not sure this is the right role or career for me?’ However, in medicine, for a variety of reasons, this seems to be something that is difficult to admit or act upon. It is possible to obtain success, both personally and professionally beyond medicine and we can support you explore what that might look like.
For some it may require retraining in another profession, for others it may be transitioning either your professional competencies and/or medical knowledge and experience into another role within or outside of the broader health sector, for others they start their own business or buy into a successful business.
For a number of reasons I need to either reconsider, or transition out of my clinical role or practice - is this possible and how do I go about this?Expand
This scenario is experienced by many doctors. Our role is to support you to work through this process, as an independent and objective third party to:
- Understand and articulate the drivers that have lead you to this position
- Evaluate and confirm, challenge or rethink them if necessary
- Navigate and explore what your options are in either continuing and/or transitioning out of your clinical role/practice
- Help you manage your expectations as to how easy or difficult this might be to realise this transition so you can make informed decisions and plan for exiting
I need some support in evaluating my medical career and understanding which pathways and role (or combination of roles) are the best options for me to pursue long term?Expand
We support doctors to engage in a process of career assessment and review in order to make informed career decisions – continue on, re-enter, progress, diversify, transition. This process can involve a number of steps outlined below:
Career assessment & health check:
- Where am I at?
- What’s working, what’s not?
- Am I achieving my potential and realizing my career goals?
- I need a personal career plan!
