About Career Well Being and Celia Paul Associates

Hippocrates said that what's more important than the disease the person has is the person who has the disease. In "career health" terms, similarly, what's more important than the career transition the person makes is the person who makes the career transition.

We have developed an original paper-and-pencil instrument to measure your ability to change careers (career resilience, career versatility, and career flexibility), which reflects those career attitudes, career behaviors, and career beliefs of "career change champions," -- lawyers, doctors, scientists, engineers, and other credentialed professionals who have made both successful and satisfying career transitions on their own.  Their behaviors are "best practices" or a "gold standard" for changing careers on your own...or with our help.

Celia Paul Associates specializes in career change, career planning, and career coaching for physicians. Offering quality specialist care since 1980, Celia Paul Associates is the largest, oldest, and most well known U.S. career management firm guiding physicians to "career well-being" in non-clinical careers within or outside of medicine.

Your investment in your professional identity can be renewed in a new setting that affords you career satisfaction by using your most enjoyable transferable skills.
