Week after week, I read your guest posts here and I am so grateful that you are taking time to share your stories — stories filled with pain, despair, loss of hope, determination and even occasional successes.
I so badly want to help you feel better AND find workable solutions. While I realize each of you has your own unique story, situation and set of needs, I believe there are themes that are emerging: survival; finding joy; embracing your own identity whether you choose to practice medicine or not; balancing the demands of motherhood, spousehood and work; dealing with demanding work environments; coping with deep disappointment as to how life as a physician has turned out for you.
I would like to create for you an inspiring, affordable, self-paced home study program to provide comfort, inspiration AND solutions, based on my own insights and skills as a physician coach whose job it is to help physicians like you. I’m also a working mom (working full-time from a home office) and a former practicing family doc who burned out many years ago.
I know you are busy so this program will not be a big old lecture thing that you have to slog through. Instead, with your help and input I want to design it to be exactly what you want.
Do you want concise nuggets that challenge you to experience and savor your life more deeply?
Do you want to learn new skills to help you discover for yourself that next experience that will bring you deeper fulfillment and satisfaction in your professional and personal life?
Do you want me to share a ton of resources that point you to non-clinical opportunities?
Do you want a bit of everything?
Here is a link to a brief 5-question survey to help you answer these questions (it won’t take longer than 3 minutes): Women in Medicine Survey
Once again, how can I REALLY be of service to you, and help ease your difficult choices??
