When transitioning out of clinical practice, many physicians are seeking more flexibility and also want to continue contributing to progressing health and science. My guest today, Dr. Jill Miracle, found a role that checks both of these boxes: working as a principal investigator for a contract research organization (CRO). Dr. Miracle will discuss why she was experiencing burnout in her role as an infectious disease doctor, how her new career provides a better work-life balance, and how you can explore being a principal investigator.
In this episode we’re talking about:
- Dr. Miracle’s path from ID doc to principal investigator
- What exactly is a principal investigator
- How work-life balance can influence your career journey
- Whether additional training is needed to be a principal investigator
- Jill’s day-to-day work in her current role and how she connects with patients
- What types of physicians are best suited for this role
- Typical compensation and how to get started as a principal investigator
