Journal Club 9-20-18

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!

  • Doctor of Finance MD interviewed Vagabond MD last week on the matter of “Burnout Factor Units”. It's a great reminder on the importance of minimizing burnout and why part-time medicine might be a great way to go for some doctors.

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


  1. I really enjoyed the vagabond MD post on burnout units. Very novel approach to viewing burnout and it really does ring true. Anything you can do to lower these units will prolong your career (and sanity). Sometimes taking less money for less work will actually let you accumulate more money in the long run as you can work and earn longer.

  2. Thanks for linking to the VagabondMD post over on my site. I have not seen a couple of these other posts but will check them out. I am only working 3 days per week but I still do not have enough time to read all the posts that sound interesting!

  3. Thanks so much for the feature! I’m honored to be in such good company. It was interesting to read Steve Ark’s take on why he still works if he doesn’t need the money. I think employment can provide a lot of benefits other than $$$ and he brought up some I hadn’t thought of before.
