"I had a degree from a prestigious college, had been accepted to my top residency program, had a bright future with a decent salary and job security waiting for me, and all I felt was angry and afraid. I didn't want what came with it, the practice of medicine." Dr. Michelle Mudge-Riley, Physicians in Transition - Interviews with 25 doctors who successful reinvented themselves

A very sobering, yet powerful quote from my next guest Dr. Michelle Mudge-Riley. Michelle is open about her story of realizing that clinical medicine was not for her. After graduating from medical school, Dr. Mudge-Riley went through both uncertainty and stress, yet, she found her way and a strong community of physicians who thought and felt the same way she did.

This experience led her to create Physicians Helping Physicians, her coaching business for doctors looking to transition to non-clinical careers.  For over 10 years, Dr. Mudge-Riley has been helping physicians find satisfaction and solutions with their medical careers. Besides the coaching business, Dr. Mudge-Riley’s work has been featured in numerous media outlets including KevinMD, The D.O., and The Physician Executive Journal.

Things you’ll learn in this interview:

  • How lucrative the field of career coaching is compared to clinical practice
  • Common reasons for dissatisfaction she sees among her clients
  • Her take on social media and why she encourages her clients to use it
  • Role play: What’s her advice for the 36 yr old CT surgeon who is fresh out of fellowship but can’t see himself opening chests for the next 25 years
  • How she answers #imnotjustadoc
  • The post 010 – This doctor had it all, but didn’t want it appeared first on DOCS OUTSIDE THE BOX.

    Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
