PNC Podcast

Thanks for visiting this site. This is the home of Physician NonClinical Careers with John Jurica.

I’m John, and I am here to bring you weekly content that will help you to escape burnout and frustration, and find a new career or “side-hustle” that will bring passion and meaning to your life.

With each episode, I will provide you with inspiration and actionable advice that will enable you to make the pivot to a new career.

Since I’m not an expert in all nonclinical areas, I’ll bring physicians to you who have already made the transition. Together we’ll provide specific steps to an alternative career. Sometimes, I will present non-physician experts from industries looking for physicians to work with.

Here are the episodes published to date:
