Midlife career changes challenge, excite local physicians
...
Dr. Tony Mardini, who practices with Summitt Medical Group at Concord Medical Center, graduated from the University of Tennessee Knoxville in aerospace and biomedical engineering and worked for Rockwell International in Los Angeles for three years, analyzing data and components for the space shuttle program.
"It was interesting in the beginning, using state-of-the-art computers and software," Mardini said, "but after three years of doing the same thing every single day, it got boring.I wanted something more exciting, something that can change on a daily basis."
He got a medical degree from Spartan Health Sciences University School of Medicine, completed a residency at UT Medical Center and rotations here and in Arkansas and Ohio, and has practiced medicine for eight years, doing a lot of work with geriatric patients.He "never, never" regrets the career change - or the move back to Knoxville from Los Angeles.
"I love what I do, and it's very satisfying," Mardini said."I like interacting with people and the satisfaction of making people feel better. ...I enjoy primary care.I enjoy dealing with patients on a one-to-one basis."
But getting there was sometimes rough.For a few years during his training, Mardini was working in different parts of the country while his wife and child stayed in California.His wife, a biologist, worked to put him through school.After Mardini began practicing and the family moved to Knoxville, she was able to be a stay-at-home mother to their children, now 12 and 9, Mardini said.
"She's very happy here," he said."She does not work outside the house, but she is probably busier than me."
Spousal support is imperative for those going back to college midlife.
