What does that look like in action?
I have had the privilege of hosting workshops on topics related to leadership in healthcare. I teach physicians how to be leaders in our field and succeed in the business of medicine. There are also virtual mastermind groups and group coaching for those who want to dig even deeper and take their career to another level.
Over the years I have had the privilege of speaking to many groups, including physicians in China as part of a Sports Medicine delegation and in Guatemala with the world's #1 leadership expert, John C. Maxwell.
My 6 Keys to Total Wellness program has been used for workshops, seminars and personalized health coaching. I enjoy helping people live healthier lives and become the healthiest versions of themselves possible. It is why I went into medicine in the first place.
The Business of Medicine
My other passion is still learning about the business side of medicine. I'm a bit of an entrepreneur at heart and really enjoyed building a practice and investing throughout my career. I also like to share what I learn, so I started speaking and writing books on this topic. Many of my colleagues and former medical school classmates have encouraged me along the way. The result of that is what you see today. Feel free to contact me if you have benefitted from the content here or would like to learn even more.
