Do You Want to Be a Medical Voice Over Professional?
Michael P. Cyll is a cardiac sonographer working in the Phoenix area for over 30 years. As he approached retirement from that clinical career, he developed an interest in narration and voice-over work, specializing in narration in the science, technical and medical fields. For the past year, he has been honing his voice-over skills and performing in a variety of freelance jobs, including audiobook narration, YouTube videos, and Zoom Theater productions. This is a new job option that I thought you’d like to hear about. So I brought Mike on the podcast to see what Mike can tell us about getting into this field. Based on our conversation, and listening to recordings by non-medical narrators, I believe that there is a need for voice-overs by knowledgeable clinicians. How many times have you heard a medication mispronounced on a radio or TV ad, or even in some type of educational video? I think it would be great if we had nurses and physicians familiar with medical terminology doing some of those narrations. Mike gave us a quick overview of his efforts to enter the field, and some pointers to get started. And I hope he inspired a few of you to start exploring this interesting field. In addition to links to the resources Mike mentioned, I am including additional links that may benefit the listeners. Simply go to the show notes at nonclincalphysicians.com/medical-voice-over to access those links. Check out the Clinicians Career Cooperative here.

Learn to Be an IME and Improve Your Life
Today I present a conversation with an internationally recognized speaker, best-selling author, mentor, and consultant who will teach you how to be an IME (independent medical examiner). Dr. Emily Woolcock is among the country’s most well-known and respected orthopedic surgeons. She is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and the American Board of Independent Medical Examiners. Dr. Woolcock founded businesses in Georgia, Florida, and Maryland, including the Orthopedic and Joint Replacement Institute, the Accident Rehabilitation Center, and National Orthopedic Consultants. In 2016 she established the IME Academy where students are taught to perform defensible, literature-based independent medical examinations. Emily is passionate about helping other physicians break free from the devastating work/life balance issues she experienced early in her career. As a wife and mother, she understands the struggles physicians and other healthcare professionals face as they become disenchanted by the changes in healthcare, and failed attempts at work/life balance. This is the first time I have had a guest with expertise in performing IMEs. IME consulting overlaps with what an expert witness might do. But it also involves examining patients, which some might find more compelling as a side job. Like expert witness work, it pays very well and you generally must continue to practice medicine. Emily dropped a lot of value-bombs. She clearly knows this topic well. If you’re interested in learning more about her IME course, you can find it at theimeacademy.com. I provide the IME Academy link and links to her books in the show notes at nonclincalphysicians.com/be-an-ime/ Check out the Clinicians Career Cooperative here.

How to Run Your Business and Master Your Finances
For today’s interview, I have the pleasure of speaking with a fellow podcaster, and one of our Mentors on the Clinicians Career Cooperative. We’ll be discussing money issues, personal finance, coaching, podcasting, balancing a clinical and nonclinical job, and more. Today’s guest is the multitalented gastroenterologist Brent Lacey. Dr. Lacey is passionate about his patients, and about helping physicians succeed with business and personal finances. As a physician, he understands how overwhelming it can be to step out of clinical training and into a career. And he has seen firsthand the huge educational gap that exists in running a practice and managing money. He has coached hundreds of families to eliminate debt. And he has spoken to physician groups around the country on topics related to business and personal finance. That's why he founded The Scope of Practice website, blog and podcast. I found it enlightening to hear how Brent grew his coaching business. It seems there is an endless need for teaching professionals how to get a handle on their finances, run a better practice, and make time to devote to family. Brent is active on every big social media site: @businesscoachmd on Twitter, and @thescopeofpractice on Instagram. The easiest way to find his Facebook Group is to use this link: thescopeofpractice.com/facebookpage.

Who Can Help When Private Practice Matters?
Today’s guest is who you call when you're dealing with challenging private practice matters. Dr. Phil Boucher is a husband, a father of five, and a pediatrician in private practice in Lincoln, Nebraska. He is very prolific, treating patients, educating parents, and helping his colleagues enjoy their clinical work. He has created an online presence for parents that includes a podcast and YouTube channel, all under the title “Raising Good Parents.” Phil graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. He also completed his pediatric residency at UNMC working at the Children's Hospital and Medical Center in Omaha. He then joined Lincoln Pediatrics Group and is now a partner. He loves practicing medicine. Yet, he cannot help but create and share solutions with physicians who are struggling with problems he’s overcome. So, he became a coach and consultant to other physicians addressing important private practice matters. And he solves a big problem that is important to physicians: time management. During our interview, he explains what he believes are two of the top ways to improve personal productivity. He has even created a course that teaches his student physicians how to optimize these factors in their practices. It is called OnTime MD.

The Best New Business Solves a Problem
Dr. Jessica Lubahn is a urologist, health writer, and consultant. She is also the founder of ONDRwear, an apparel company that sells luxe leakproof underwear. Jessica tells me that she created this company to destigmatize urinary, menstrual, and other leakage through the creation of products that are highly effective and beautiful. Dr. Lubahn received her medical degree at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Then, she completed her surgical internship and urology residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. Here are the major steps that Jessica followed in creating her new apparel company: Identify a problem experienced by her patients. Create the prototype of a potential solution, in this case, a tangible product. Research the industry, network, and determine if creating the product is feasible. Establish the business, and engage an accountant, attorney, and other necessary professionals. For her physical product, create a design or blueprint and find a manufacturer. Create a website and social media accounts, and develop a marketing plan. Start selling the product. The process Jessica followed is quite similar to the way that Greg Hanson started his business in last week’s episode #170. If you’d like to check out the Onderwear company, go to ondrwear.com. It's a very nicely designed and presented website, and I think you can still get a 15% discount on its well-designed clothing.

What Is the Latest Way to Connect Doctors with Interesting Jobs?
Dr. Greg Hanson decided to start a business that provides the latest way to connect doctors with interesting jobs. Greg is a PGY-3 interventional radiology resident in Philadelphia. He graduated from UCLA with his BS in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences before moving across the country to New York City. While in New York, Greg obtained his Master of Public Health degree in epidemiology with an advanced certificate in applied biostatistics. He obtained his medical degree from the Dartmouth Medical School in Hanover, New Hampshire. In June 2018, he started his surgical internship, followed by his integrated interventional radiology residency. During his first year of diagnostic radiology, he began doing side jobs using his statistical and science background to earn extra money. But the process of finding those jobs was difficult. He believed there should be a better way to link physicians with side jobs and this is sparked the idea for flipMD. It’s a pretty straightforward business. Find businesses that need the expertise or advice of physicians and connect them with appropriate physicians looking for side jobs. It reminds me of what Upwork does for other freelancers. I encourage you to check it out at flip-MD.com and give it a try if you’re in the market for a part-time gig advising start-ups or other freelance work. I’ll put links to the company and other resources mentioned during our conversation at nonclinicalphysicians.com/latest-way-to-connect-doctors, along with other links that were mentioned today.

How to Prepare for a Job in the Medical Device Industry
In today’s interview, we build on the discussion in Episode 168 by speaking with Dr. Paul Hercock from the United Kingdom about the Medical Device Industry. Dr. Hercock is an Emergency Medicine physician who started out working for the National Health Service. He graduated from Nottingham Medical School in 2002. After initially training as a surgeon he pivoted into a career in Emergency Medicine. He is a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, and also has a law degree from Nottingham Law School. While working as a Physician, Paul became increasingly interested in medical devices. He set up and established Mantra Medical, a medical device start-up focused on improving infection control. He later made a move into a full-time position in the medical device sector to work as a medical advisor. Paul is now a self-employed medical entrepreneur, combining work on his medical device start-up with the building of Mantra Systems, a consultancy business that provides medical and regulatory support to other medical device companies. His journey from clinical practice to Industry prompted him to write a book for doctors titled Beyond The Ward: A Doctor's Guide to Careers Outside the NHS (this is an Amazon affiliate link). His book can be found in major bookstores. It should be part of your library if you’re just getting started – alongside 50 Nonclinical Careers for Physicians by Sylvie Stacy and Heidi Moawad’s Careers Beyond Clinical Medicine (also Amazon affiliate links). If you don’t own those three books, then you’re not serious about pursuing a new career that builds on your medical background. I’ll put a link to Paul’s book in the show notes at nonclinicalphysicians.com/medical-device-industry, along with other links that were mentioned today.

How to Best Apply Your Genius in a New Career
John recently read a book called Find Your Zone of Genius: How to Redefine Intelligence, Become an Expert on Yourself, and Make Greatness a Given, by Laura Garnett. Its principles are applicable to physicians struggling to determine if they should remain in medicine, start a nonclinical career, or do something else. Laura is a performance strategist, speaker, and author. She works with CEOs and executives to identify their unique genius and purpose and leverage them in their day-to-day work. She has consulted with organizations including Google, Pandora, LinkedIn, and 15Five. Prior to launching her own company, New York City-based Garnett Consulting, she honed her marketing, strategy, and career-refining skills at companies like Capital One, American Express, IAC, and Google. John found the book so foundational for "seeking" clinicians that he invited the author onto the podcast, and this is her interview. During the conversation, Laura explains several concepts from the book that will truly help us in our career journey: What is the Zone of Genius? How do we find our innate talents? Why is our purpose more important than our passion? Why finding support is usually preferable to obtaining advice. How your core emotional challenge usually determines your purpose. Laura has developed many tools to help us in our journey of self-discovery. You can find those tools, and purchase the book on her website LauraGarnett.com.

3 Big Communication Mistakes That Will Derail Your Career
For this podcast episode, John describes three big communication mistakes that will impair your performance and derail your career. Here are the MISTAKES - in no particular order… Choosing the WRONG MEDIUM – usually NOT choosing face to face or telephonic communication as opposed to something else. The more important the message, the more you should be inclined to make it face-to-face. Lack of CLARITY So many messages are totally unclear, ambiguous, or incomplete. Several examples are provided during the discussion. Lack of REPETITION Have you noticed that awesome leaders often repeat themselves? Important messages must be repeated, in different venues, in different ways, in order to change or reinforce the culture, vision, and mission of an organization.
