Helping Doctors Optimize their Career and Lifestyle
For the past several years, every week I’d get multiple calls from doctors asking me about coaching and a non-clinical career. After transitioning to a non-clinical career in 2004 and then being labeled the “Doctor’s Doctor” in 2010 because of my success helping other doctors transition meant I had hundreds of physicians reaching out to me - and they kept successfully transitioning! These doctors now wanted to help other doctors who were interested in transitioning. So I decided to change my business structure from a one-on-one coaching model to a community model where physicians help physicians, TOGETHER.
Here are some things we’ve worked with doctors to do:
- Optimize their current clinical career (either by helping with work life balance or with leadership skills).
- Transition to a non-clinical career.
- Create and develop a personal development plan so 2-5 years from now, they will be set in the optimal situation.
- Understand and optimize their personal brand.
- Understand and make networking work.
- Get business skills without going back to school.
If you are interested in transitioning to a non-clinical career, join us!
If you are interested in transitioning to a non-clinical career, this is what we do:
- Help you to figure out the answers to questions it feels like you don’t know how to ask
- Over and over we hear confusion in doctors and see their reluctance to do anything because they aren't sure what to do or what it may lead to
- Organize your thoughts/emotions/needs/realities. Physicians Helping Physicians is a community of physicians who have gone through the same training and emotions
- Included in this process are hours and hours of question and answer time.
- This is always confidential, though we encourage you to get your family involved
- We help you figure out an “elevator speech” and a way to describe to medical and non-medical colleagues “why” in a non-threatening way that commands respect and admiration
- Time value activity audit.
- Avoid some of the common “pitfalls”
- Educating you on NOT taking jobs “just because you can”, how to avoid scams and teaching you how to work with recruiters and in the business world as a doctor
- Show you how to develop a plan for yourself
- This involves a personal development plan and how to ask questions of yourself; then how to figure out the answers to those questions for yourself
- Develop an action plan
- Talk is good, but if you don't have a plan or a way to carry out the plan, you may be wasting your time. We have seen this time and time again – it’s one of the most crucial parts of the process. This involves taking a look at your CV/resume and then designing, showing value in what you do/bring to the table
- Turn your ideas into money
- This involves taking what you have and making money doing it!
- There are jobs that are out there that marry your skills/interests with profitability
- Access to our networks of CEO’s and other C-suite individuals, Senior VP’s at hospital systems, recruiters, grants, job postings. etc..
- We often put you in touch with other doctors who have been through it or who are in positions you may have an interest in
