A doctor friend of mine and I were talking about our HIMSS trip and how many physicians told us were getting “sick and tired” of the business of medical practice. I spoke with a number of docs there looking to get out of medicine and into technology, marketing, management, or other fields. I thought for sure that there couldn’t be that many physicians looking for a career change.
Boy, was I wrong. Another physician buddy of mine sent me a note about the MedicalFusion Conference being held November 5-7, 2010 at the Wynn Resort Las Vegas (it was previously set for September in San Diego). The whole purpose of the conference is to help physicians who are looking for a career change. Here’s what the organizers said about the conference:
Physician career change is the focus of the Medical Fusion conference. Non-clinical jobs, medical journalism, medical informatics, physician entrepreneurs, medical device development, and venture capital are all topics that will be covered at this exciting new event.
Whether you are a medical resident who wants to learn about all of the possibilities available to you or a retired physician looking for entrepreneurial side ventures, this is the conference for you. Come to Medical Fusion and get the tools necessary to take your career to the next level.
Medical Fusion is for physicians interested in exploring non-clinical career opportunities. Designed to teach physicians how to leverage their medical training and expand their careers, participants receive training from experts with practical knowledge on a variety of non-clinical subjects.
Medical Fusion is designed as a “tool box” for the modern physician. Clinical physicians today need to know how to leverage their clinical training in new and unique ways. Medical Fusion provides broad exposure to a variety of niche areas, leaving participants with practical steps to begin crafting the career they’ve always wanted. Come learn from physicians who’ve already developed their own unique careers.
Medical Fusion: a new medical event for physicians, by physicians.
I found the idea of this conference so fascinating that I’m planning on attending. I hope to see you there.
