professional societies and associations

At NewScript, we’re dedicated to helping you grow professionally and pursue the career of your dreams.

To that end, we have created the NewScript Nonclinical Career Summit 2023.

This Summit was designed to:

  • Introduce you to fulfilling nonclinical careers and side jobs,
  • Inspire you to overcome limiting beliefs and take bold action, and,
  • Teach you how to pursue the most popular nontraditional jobs.

To help as many clinicians as possible, registration for the live lectures and Q&A was available at no cost.

Once the Summit began, only those who purchased the All Action Pass could access the recorded lectures.

Following the close of the Summit, the All Action Pass Recordings sold for $249.00.

For a limited time, the All Action Pass can be obtained for $199.00.

For those of you who are serious about implementing the strategies discussed during the Summit, we now offer the Lifetime All Access Pass to the video and audio recordings and bonus materials from our presenters, at a very low price of $199.00. But this price is only available for a few more days.

See the information below for more details about the faculty and topics covered during their lectures.

The feedback on the Summit has been very positive, with lots of inspiration, encouragement, and actionable steps to implement for those looking for fulfilling work outside the high-volume, corporate-style healthcare environment.
