Executive and Career Coach for Physicians 

Dear Physician Colleague:

Do you have an inkling that you have so much more "brain power," "engine power" and talent than you actually utilize in your current situation?  You are not unique in feeling that way!  Many physicians have reached a point in their career where they are ready to try something new.  

Making a career change as a physician is a daunting proposition--no matter how old you are, or where you are in your career. And you are not alone in feeling puzzled about where to go for help and how to start a transition. 

Let me assure you that just by reading this, you are taking a important first step in journeying outside of your comfort zone!  Not only that, you are going to be delighted and amazed at what is in store for you once you really start exploring new possibilities! 

Career transition can be intimidating---but the pay-off is enormous!  Doing fulfilling work you really love is energizing, mind-expanding . . . .and can be downright profitable!  New people, new places, new skills, a joy of work, looking forward to each day, making a contribution to the world AND having fun . . and all you have to do is take the first step today by tapping into your proven strength as a life-long learner.

Read on to find the answers to your questions about career transition and how the guide can help you.

What is the origin of the Career Transition Workshop?

I have been coaching physicians on leadership and professional development---including career transition---for many years now.  In my work with physicians I developed and refined a set of tools and methods that I use to help them achieve their goals.  I thought it would be helpful to compile and make available some of these tools as a "self-coaching" resource for those of you who are not ready to work within a one-on-one executive coaching program or group coaching program.

"The [guide ] has been a blueprint for me and has served as a springboard for much research into a variety of topics. I never realized how much experience I had in so many fields and am now trying to parlay these experiences into a healthcare consultant and professional speaking firm. The [guide] has helped me identify my strengths, but more importantly, my weaknesses."
--D. Benson, MD, Internist, Florida

The Career Transition Workshop reflects the way real physicians approach professional skills-building and "retraining" after clinical practice.  It is a solid method, developed from the learning of many physicians who have gone through this process---and you can benefit by experiencing a smoother process, fewer frustrations, and less costly mistakes. 

If you want to follow the methods and footsteps of physicians who have been in your place, Career Transition Workshop was developed specifically to help you.

{Note: In my one-on-one coaching with physician clients who are exploring career change, we use many of the tools and methods in the Workshop, PLUS many more . . . contact me if you want to explore a one-on-one coaching program.}

  • Why do I need a guide to help me explore transition?

  • You belong to a specialized group of highly educated, yet socially insulated, group of professionals.  [I know from my own experience!]

    When I was ready to make a career change from clinical practice and into business, I had no idea what else physicians were capable of doing besides seeing patients or supervising other physicians.  

    By sheer luck, I took two critical action steps that forever changed the course of my professional and personal life . . .  You will learn not only these two critical actions but all the steps you need to join the hundreds of physicians who have gone from being frustrated to fulfilled.

    In this step-by-step, self-paced workshop, you will walk through the steps that not only I have taken, but also those that many other physicians have taken to successfully explore and find a non-clinical opportunity that fits them to a tee!  

    Unlike generic career books and Internet sites devoted to resumes and cover letters for non-professionals and non-physicians, in the Career Transition Workshop and Learning Modules you will benefit from the wisdom of dozens of physicians who have made a career change into non-clinical professional roles. 

    "The "Guide" is a must have for any physician contemplating a career change.  It spans the breadth of things one needs to consider from getting in touch with core values to the nuts and bolts of how to work a room in a networking event.  The style is so warm and friendly, I felt as though you were talking me through the  whole process.  I highly recommend the resource guide.  It's the only one I've seen written specifically for physicians and we, as highly trained professionals do have some special needs when we get ready to launch a new career.  Thanks for developing this valuable resource."

    J. Thilo, MD, Business Consultant


    What kind of resources do I need to start?

    Right now you possess many of tools and resources that will get you started in your transition and land you the next big adventure of your life. You just have to know how to use your time well, develop your "tool kit" and take advantage of these resources. 

    What are those resources?  

    In the Online Workshop you will learn how to effectively use these five resources at your disposal:

    • Current skills --- from the Guide you will learn which are transferable, which to acquire

    • Natural born talents ---- you will walk through an inventory of your special gifts, skills and talents--these will become the the center of your professional life and possibly the engine of your transition.

    “Just for your files, I thought I would tell you what I am now doing. After working last year to raise funds for a cultural competency training program at our pediatric residency and succeeding to win a $450,000 NIH grant, I became interested in fund raising as a profession. One thing lead to another; I went to a week long training in non-profit fundraising; I made a proposal to our hospital foundation and now I am a full time fund raiser for the hospital.  My new title is “Director of Major Gifts/Physician Liaison.  I am using all my past connections and experience but I don’t see patients anymore. I give tours to potential donors and facilitate the efforts of parents who want to help us raise funds. I am organizing an alumni association for the residency.  I also have organized a committee of staff physicians to  maximize physician input in hospital fundraising. It's fun and creative work.

    Where do physicians get "stuck" when it comes to career transition?

    Physicians often need the most assistance with networking, making contacts, assessing their skills, and exploring specific local, regional and national possibilities that aren't even on their radar screen.  In addition, this is what I often hear:  

     "Give me the scoop in full, step-by-step detail. Don't leave anything to my imagination, don't assume I know any of this stuff." 

    Physician's Definitive Guide to Career Transition™ Learning Modules focus on what mystifies physicians the most about career transition. In the detailed material, you will follow the examples of several physicians examples of several physicians examples of several physicians who are in the same place as you.  From their experience you will learn: who are in the same place as you.  From their experience you will learn: who are in the same place as you.  From their experience you will learn:

    • How to format your resume so it makes for compelling reading

    • How to make the most important call of your life

    • How to talk about your key accomplishments so that you are perceived as a valuable asset and problem solver

    • How to leverage your current experience into new fields and industries

    • How to conduct the most important meeting of your career transition

    Even if you have an MBA, you need a smart transition strategy 

    "Many physicians who have completed an MBA, MHA or MMM have been unpleasantly surprised by the lukewarm reception they get from recruiters and employers."
