Our Community, Your Journey
Physicians Helping Physicians serves the physicians who are interested in figuring out how to make their career work for them. The community is unique because it’s not a “cookie cutter” approach to career transition or strategy. Every doctor is different and is coming from a different place. Some are 1-2 years or more out of residency and others have been in private practice for 10 years or more before finding this community. It’s been our experience that 80-90% of the time, physicians who work with this community will have clear focus and career direction within 6-8 months. Most doctors have been struggling with this on their own for years, if not decades.
Being part of this nonclinical community is simple – there is no travel involved and there is support and communication with us. I serve as a physician mentor and we work together as physician colleagues, as do many of the other physicians you will read about, watch or hear from.
We help you identify where it is you want to be, but more importantly, we guide you through the practicalities of how to get there. We can help you find ways to revitalize your current career in medicine or diversify yourself with non-clinical options or a completely non-clinical career.
If you're like me, you want out of medicine as fast as your feet can carry you--- as soon as you can find something else that suits your interests and abilities, and which will enable you to meet your financial commitments. You don't want to take the first thing that comes along, and then find yourself as unhappy and unfulfilled in the new thing as you were in practice...
I want to thank you for all your effort and care put into this weekend's PHP conference. I have found so much relief and inspiration simply by hearing others put words to many complicated feelings I have had as I transition away from the only job I've known. I was almost brought to tears last night at the opening panel as I realized how the feelings I have been processing (doubt/guilt/anxiety) is common and understandable.
I just wanted to say thank you. I attended your course earlier in the year and found so many things I was interested in. It kick-started my plans and I was able to make a change. I am starting my second week as a Medical Director for a national insurance company in UM and am so happy.
