Non-Clinical Careers for Physicians

Our mission is to provide our clients with the Skills Education Abilities and Knowledge to succeed.  SEAK created the annual Non-Clinical Careers Conference in 2003, as a way to help physicians explore the numerous non-clinical opportunities that are available to them. Since then, over 5,000 physicians have attended the conference and many of them have successfully transitioned to a full or part time Non-Clinical Career.

This is an eye opening and inspiring weekend where you can explore dozens of Non-Clinical Opportunities, benefit from free mentoring, and interview with recruiters.  Your biggest challenge after attending the conference will likely be deciding which of many possible roads to follow.  In fact, a large percentage of our faculty are conference alumni.

What Our Alumni Have To Say
