Are you dreading your medical retirement, or doing your best to keep going with your medical career until you can break free from employment? Are you looking for medical retirement advice, or unsure of how to navigate as your medical retirement age approaches? Would you like to develop a medical retirement plan and a clear vision for your next chapter with expert medical career planning support?
Lots of senior doctors who are approaching retirement from their medical careers have mixed feelings or are unsure about how they will cope with the change of identity and role as they move towards the peri-retirement period. Sadly, many doctors retire at a relatively young age early following a period of increasing burnout, GPs retire on average age 58.5 years, and with increases in life expectancy many of us can expect a 30 year or more retirement period. Many doctors continue to work into their later years on a full or part time basis, and many newly retired doctors are back at work as soon as the first few months of the honeymoon period is over, feeling unsure about how to navigate their way in life without the structure of work.
I can help you to make a successful transition to this important next phase of your medical career, whether that is to your full medical retirement, to a phased retirement, or towards a later life career which is increasingly on your own terms. With my evidence based medical career counselling service, a specialist form of career coaching, we can work together to gain a clear understanding of what you want and need in the next chapter of your life, to take a deep and broad look at what your options and wishes are, and to make a clear plan and create an exciting new vision for your future.
Medical retirement planning for doctors isn’t all about managing your pension and finances- though of course that is an important aspect of planning your medical retirement! With a possible 100 year life for many doctors, it is wholly possible to stay engaged and contributing to society in some way, on your own terms and playing to your strengths and interests, in later life. I’ve helped dozens of senior doctors to plan their careers and their retirement periods, please book a consultation call with me today if you’d like to find out more.
