Pump the brakes on your week and take 10 minutes to make your life as a surgeon just a little better…
Jeff welcomes to the podcast board-certified pediatrician and founder of Doctoring Differently®, Dr. Naomi Lawrence-Reid.
Doctoring Differently® is focused on teaching physicians that they can create the lives and careers that they deserve. Many physicians are unaware of the plethora of professional options available to them. We’re often taught that there are only a few career paths to choose from. But there are so many alternative options that can lead to better, more fulfilling careers.
What steps does Naomi suggest we do to build the careers of our dreams?
- Step 1 – Understand that there are no rules for a career in medicine. The traditional career paths are not the only ones available.
- Step 2 – Survey your career options. This can include opportunities inside and outside of medicine. Explore what others have done and even what no one has done before.
- Step 3 – Begin the process that will create the career that you want. Take action and pursue the career of your dreams.
Most importantly, begin to PRACTICE doctoring differently!
