My name is Lumi St. Claire, and I am a 30-something (recovering) primary care doctor. After a whopping eleven years in the field battling managed care restrictions, insurance companies, and terminally broken administrations, my white doctor’s coat officially caught fire and I burned out. Rather than try to dust myself off again working as a clinician, I made the unorthodox decision to completely restart my career as a medical and educational consultant, much to the horror of my colleagues. I mean, when you’ve finished four years of college, four years of medical school, three years of residency training, and over half a decade of clinical practice, you don’t just pack up and LEAVE, do you?
Or do you?
