That is great, BUT, it is VERY difficult to go back later. Things can happen that you don't anticipate, like spouse's death or divorce. Try to at least volunteer once a week at a clinic to keep your skills up, as mentioned above. Otherwise a re-training is required and its very hard to find/set up, time-consuming and often expensive. Just a word to the wise!

Hi! Good for you for starting the blog. Sorry not to contact you through the site but I was not interested in signing up for tumblr at the moment.

I too started a blog/free healthcare site (will possibly make it a paid service at some point just building a readership/following now.)

Love that you are doing podcasts! I would love to be interviewed for a podcast. What are you using to record? We are abroad at the moment... You can use SKYPE to record interviews to turn into podcasts. I intend to add podcasts the later part of the year.

Have a look at my site: www.expatdoctormom.com at my story: expatdoctormom.com/my-story/
and my journey: expatdoctormom.com/my-projects/my-journey/ for more information.

I am saddened that so many women are disenchanted with medicine. I still really enjoy clinical medicine. I had to put it on hold as until now there have not been any good venues for me to practice abroad. But hopefully soon, I will re-start here until our eventual return back to the USA.

Feel free to email me directly through my site: expatdoctormom.com/contact/

Regards,
Rajka

I want to add that I found a job doing disability exams. This is easy for any mom returning to medicine - they provide the office, malpractice, everything, you just pick the days you want to work, like one day a week or even just Sat.'s and you walk in, see claimants (you don't do any prescribing) and leave. You can dictate and edit the reports at home. I'm so happy! I am reviewing medications in an online course at home and when I feel comfortable will start back in practice. If noone will hire me, I will just continue doing disability exams and start my own practice by sub-leasing a small office one day a week until I am full, then add another day, etc.
