If you're a physician actively seeking career change or you're just starting and want to find out "What's out there," attending a conference addressing your area or areas of interest can be a great first start.
Attending a conference that addresses your interests, from population health to healthcare investment advising, pharmacovigilance, healthcare analytics, nonprofit advocacy, corporate health & wellness... you name it someone is hosting a conference on the topic. And, not just not he topic but being attended by literally hundreds of people you'd give anything right now to talk to and to learn from.
Attending a conference is a deep-dive into valuable information and invaluable contacts.
Attending a conference allows you to learn about the scope of organizations involved... what actual companies you may want to target and perhaps even meet some people who work there.
Also, you'll learn more about the topic itself. What's hot today, what are the trends, developments, where's it headed.
So, whether you're well on your way in your transition or just beginning, industry, business, topic - specific conferences, seminars and meeting (don't overlook Meetup.com) are great places to move your nonclinical career transition to the next level.
