Medical Fusion Conference for physicians looking for a career change moves to Vegas in November

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.

  1. They dont teach business in med school, dental school or even nursing school and that is a shame as the health industry is a business that requires business acumen. I totally understand the phenomenon

  2. This is really interesting. Plus, it's in my backyard. If you do make it out here, we should get together and chat. I may try and attend part of the event as well.

  3. As a nurse, I can fully comprehend the dilema facing physicians in this day and age when the insurance companies rule. We are no longer free to practice medicine the way we were taught in school, but rather have to adapt our methods to the business end of the profession. Money matters were never broached, as business was never a subject taught in medical or nursing schools. I don't agree, however, that physicians should leave their medical careers, joining conferences to learn about alternative, non-clinical career opportunities. Rather, they should make their voices heard in the political arena to effect change.

    1. I agree with you rncd1 as people should not run away from the problem but should try and fix the situation and let their voices be heard. This is a sign that the country we live in is not about leaving a problem behind because we cant coexist in the current system, but to try and make some changes that are neutral and sensible , to be honest Dr's need to feed their families too, and most have gone through the intense years of training to have a better career that also pays very well. These days becoming a Dr does not mean you hit the lottery, and now even if you make a comfortable income that is being taken away as well. Speak Up America!!!

    2. I agree that we live in a day and age where “insurance companies rule”. As a nurse myself, I have seen how it works in hospitals…healthcare is guided by insurance coverage rather than the best interventions for patients.

  4. 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.

  5. While you might not agree with everything the author says, his writing style is easy to read and his financial perspective seems timely considering the economic conditions we find our country in these days.

  6. I don’t agree, however, that physicians should leave their medical
    careers, joining conferences to learn about alternative, non-clinical
    career opportunities. Rather, they should make their voices heard in the
    political arena to effect change.

  10. When the buyer researches the vendors in the industry don’t make the research on your firm be a hurdle – provide up front all of the information that will be found out by the buyer and present it with your story.

  11. This was special event which was organized to help clinical physicians to improve their careers.It also helped to evaluate their options,and introduced them to career possibilities that they had not considered.
