Course Contents


The faculty is introduced, explains the goals of the course and previews the supplemental income opportunities that will be discussed in the course.

Niche Consulting

A proven way to either supplement your income or transition out of a clinical career completely is to serve as a consultant. Consulting can be well-paying, most of the work can usually be done from a home office and overhead, and start-up costs and risks are typically small. Best of all, consulting can be used to test the waters and position yourself for a new career. In this segment, attendees will be given an overview of serving as a niche consultant. Topics addressed by Steve include identifying the best consulting niches, setting (and collecting) your fee, marketing, and pleasing the client. 


Writing and teaching can be personally, professionally, and financially rewarding. In this segment physicians will learn from Jim how to monetize their subject matter expertise and life experience through writing and teaching. Traditional publishing, self publishing, freelance writing and blog writing will all be discussed. Most importantly, physicians will learn why GOOD THINGS HAPPEN TO PHYSICIANS WHO WRITE, i.e. how their writing can be used to land high-end consulting assignments, teaching gigs, and even full-time non-clinical jobs. Numerous case studies will be presented.

Disability and File Review Consulting

Disability and file review consulting is a growing and lucrative field. In this segment Steve will explain what file reviewers do and the specific types of matters physicians will typically be called to work on (e.g. disability reviews, utilization reviews, pre-authorizations, chart reviews, peer reviews, and medical necessity reviews). Physicians will be introduced to the marketplace for file reviews including who typically hires physicians, how to obtain this work, how much it pays, and how to excel at this work such that they can obtain repeat business. 

Medical-Legal Consulting

In this segment the attendees will be introduced by Jim to the opportunities available serving as an expert witness and/or independent medical examiner. Physicians who serve as expert witnesses typically bill themselves out at $500+ per hour. In this segment attendees will learn what expert witnesses and IME examiners do, what they don’t do (including the debunking of some common misconceptions about expert witnessing), which clinicians are best positioned to perform this work, the advantages and drawbacks associated with medical-legal work (it is definitely not for everyone), and what they would need to do to start serving as an expert witness.


The faculty will present the "secret sauce" for successfully supplementing ones clinical income, namely, TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.

Question Submission & Individual Attention

Attendees are provided with a form to submit a list of questions to SEAK's faculty. Steve or Jim will review these questions and then schedule a 15-20 minute phone call to answer these questions and any follow-up questions the attendee may have.
