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 will be speaking with another doctor in South Texas today. From what I know about him so far he wants help building a new skill set and I intend to refer him to the PHP community. I will also ask his permission for me to give his contact info to you so that you can make a connection first if you so desire.
Michelle, thanks for the call last night it's appreciated. I wanted to thank you also for doing such a great job with support and direction during this first job pursuit. You pay attention to details and I definitely appreciate that.
