While many physicians are able to spend time pondering their transition out of clinical practice, some are faced with acute challenges that abruptly end their clinical careers. This is what happened to today’s guest, Dr. Stephanie Pearson. Dr. Pearson loved her work as an Ob/Gyn, but when she experienced a severe injury during a delivery that left her unable to practice, her career path took a sharp turn.
