Event description

Description

Come join us for the first SoPE meeting of the San Diego chapter!

Our first meeting will include an introduction to the San Diego chapter along with a talk from the co-founder, former cardiothoracic surgeon, now venture capitalist Surindra Mitruka.

In a time where physician burnout is high, reimbursement is on the decline, and work/life balance is at the forefront of our daily discussions, doctors are looking to do something different with their careers. Many have realized that full time clinical pursuits may not be the right pathway for them, or not the most sustainable option. As a result, some questions arise:

What do I, as a physician, need to do in order to survive?
How can I turn my career trajectory into one that is sustainable?

For many, the answer lies in pursuing non clinical activities. Shifting your focus can come in one of two ways: 1. you leave clinical medicine entirely, or 2. you cut down on clinical duties and incorporate non clinical activities into your work life. In which case:

What are my options outside of clinical medicine?
How can I pursue these options and incorporate change into my routine?

Should I slowly evolve, or completely revolve, in this process? We will discuss the differences between these two options and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Hope to see you there!
