Senior Medical Officers: Planning for Retirement

Adelaide Pavilion, Veale Gardens cnr South Terrace & Peacock Road, Adelaide

A successful transition from working to retirement requires adaption to change and flexibility, often these are difficult adaptions to make.  For many, a large part of their personal identity and sense of purpose comes from their work.  For others, work may provide their main social outlet and their work with patients is a passion that sustains them. Others may be excited about the idea of retirement and look forward to the freedom they perceive will happen.  As we all know it’s imperative to plan this stage of our lives, just as much as we planned and worked towards becoming a doctor, we need to consider what will provide us with meaning and purpose during retirement as well of course with financial independence.
