When a physician quits their job, it’s usually not as simple as handing in your resignation letter and riding off into the sunset. Most of us are contractually obligated to stay for up to 180 days. That’s a REALLY long time to work while you wait for your exit, so how do you make it bearable?  


Your notice period can be your worst nightmare, or an opportunity to close a chapter on your own terms. The experience you have is completely within your control. 


Is there such a thing as “quitting well”? How can we plan for our exit ahead of time and leave the job gracefully? 


In today’s episode, I talk about how to shift your mindset and leave your job on the best terms possible.
