John Jurica MD, MPH CPE

John Jurica is a board-certified family physician who began doing nonclinical side jobs early in his career as UM physician advisor and occupational medicine medical director. 


He then transitioned to hospital administration, first as VP for Medical Affairs, and then as Chief Medical Officer. He completed a master’s degree in public health while in practice, and certification as a physician executive (CPE) through the American Association for Physician Leadership. He left his CMO position to partner in an urgent care start-up in 2014, where he continues to serve as part-time medical director for its three clinics. 


In 2017, John started producing the weekly Physician Nonclinical Careers Podcast, where he has presented interviews with dozens of physician entrepreneurs, medical directors, hospital executives, managers, coaches and other experts in physician career transition. 


He is the “Admin” for a Facebook Group with over 15,000 physician members, called Physician Nonclinical Career Hunters. And he created the Nonclinical Career Academy (, an online membership site with video courses designed to help physicians accelerate their career pivots.
