S3, Episode 18- Heidi Moawad- Careers Beyond Clinical Medicine

May 26, 2017

Welcome back to our monthly fireside chat with a physician to get to know their journey, their joys, and their struggles with finances and outside of finances.

This show is not always about actionable content. It is however a chance for you to see behind the curtains, to walk in another person’s shoes and experience their lives.

Our next guest is a neurologist and is a graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and completed neurology residency training at The University of Chicago Hospital.

She is an adjunct professor at John Carroll University in Cleveland, OH, and is a featured medical writer for a number of websites, including nonclinicaldoctors.com, Verywell.com, Neurology Times, and Physician Money Digest. Dr. Moawad is the author of Careers Beyond Clinical Medicine, an Oxford University Press publication

I can’t wait to hear about her journey!
