How can I make the most out of losing a job?

Downsized? Don't Despair

You may have loved your permanent physician job, but if your hospital recently downsized, you may be searching for a new position. Although losing your job is traumatic, think of it as an opportunity to take your career in a new direction. Ask yourself some questions about what you liked and didn't like about your most recent job:

  • Patients: Do you like your endocrinology specialty, but you're burned out by treating adults? Would you like to refocus your career to care for children?
  • Colleagues: Would you like to become a partner in a small practice group of colleagues who share your medical philosophy?
  • Setting: Would you like to move closer to family, so your children can spend more time with their grandparents?

Physician recruiting companies can make your physician job search easier. Talk to a staffing consultant about the things that matter most to you, and he or she can help you find the best job from the physician job openings that match your preferences.
