There are data to show that some physicians continue to practice longer than they should. There are anecdotal stories of physicians who discontinued practice too soon, finding a life void of the meaning and satisfaction. This session will outline a process that can help participants find a transition that is “just right” for themselves, and consequently better for patient care.


  • Identify the liabilities of practicing at an advance age.
  • Cite how the patient-physician relationship brings healing to both.
  • Describe how to be intentional (strategic) in planning to transition your career.
  • Discuss how to find meaning through service after career compensation has ended.
