Journal Club 3-7-19

Every other week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After manually filtering through the millions of articles out there on the web, I present a few that impacted my life this month.

Here’s our Journal Club for the week, enjoy!

  • It's an indisputable fact that every physician's medical career will come to an end one day. But everyone's ending will look a little bit different. The Urgent Care Career blog dedicated this post to looking at a few of the most common reasons for medical careers ending. Read more in “One Day Your Medical Career Will End.”
  • If you've ever set big goals for yourself, you know that dedication to achieving them comes with some tradeoffs. When it comes to financial independence and retiring early, we all have some things we're willing to give up and some things that are non-negotiable. Can I Retire Yet is sharing what those tradeoffs were for him in “4 Things I Gave Up To Retire Early
  • Eric Tait from the Physician's Road podcast spoke with Dr. Buck Joffrey on his journey from academic medicine to entrepreneurship. I always love interviews like this where I can gain insight into other doctor's journeys and learn from their success. Follow along on episode 24, Wealth Formula.

A little bit of motivation below. Enjoy and have a great weekend!




  1. This is a great list, as usual. Thanks for including mine. I have read many of these, but not all. Some of the concepts are important – especially understanding the economic value of a physician. Keep in mind when negotiating your contract that each doctor brings in revenue – as much as $2M each. Initially, I was skeptical when I read these and other numbers from their original sources. For a hospital network of 1,000 doctors that would bring in $2B in revenue. That seems high. Then again, that describes the health system I work in quite well. So, maybe that is right.

    I also love that Henry Ford quote. It has actually been my laptop screen saver since last summer when I started over as a blogger.
