Just back from serving on the faculty of the SEAK Non-Clinical Careers Conference where I’m privileged to serve as faculty.
Over two days, I had direct contact for at least 15 minutes with over one hundred individual clinicians “seeking” information.
It made for two very long days indeed.
Now multiply that against dozens and dozens of similarly qualified faculty, and you can see the value.
If you have a career and feel rudderless, the experience is highly, highly recommended—even if you want to keep your clinical focus.
I have no financial interest in making this recommendation, nor does SEAK need any promotion (the waiting list for the meeting grows every year).
But if you go on the medical professional social media, you’ll occasionally see our peers trash the organization and the conference.
This post is to contradict those opinions.
SEAK was an important part of my journey to non-clinical success.
A negative critique can be valid, but without an accompanying alternative such opinions raises question of intent.
Are they really trying to help or simply a troll?
SEAK is great. If you’re in need, go there.
