Physician Renaissance Network (PRN)
The Physician Renaissance Network (PRN) is another nice resource for those of you considering a career change. Various non-clinical job opportunities are constantly posted on this site. Also, you can read about some physicians who have ventured off in different non-clinical directions.
On a side note, PRN is a medical term often used in the hospital setting. It stands for "pro re nata" (Latin) and it means "as needed." Those of you who are non-medical may find this interesting. So, your doctor may prescribe some pain medications "PRN" - meaning that the nurse will only give you some pain pills if you ask for them.
