Authentic conversations between female physicians that encourage, inspire and go beyond just medicine.

    November Masterclass Recap

    November Masterclass Recap

    Super quick episode to encourage you if you’re starting to feel crispy around the edges. Each month I do a masterclass. Last Sunday of the month, 1 hour, get your butt there! This month we were chatting all about burnout relapse, because it does happen, and that’s okay. 
    If you’ve been following along, you know that I recently re-entered the clinical medicine world. I have LOVED it, but things have been getting a little crispy. Which brought the concept and reality of relapse to the fore of my mind. 
    Here’s the deal. Relapse will likely happen. We are built to push ourselves because we’ve been doing it for so long, but now you have the tools to catch it before you get full on blackened. 
    But, if you’re in the middle of it, here are some tips and strategies you can use to combat burnout relapse. 
    First, love on yourself with some self-compassion. Relapse is normal. It happens. You are no better or worse for it. Stop talking down to yourself because you’ve started to backslide. Second, take a break. You probably need it. Third, rest. 
    I share a fantastic quote at the end of the episode that you really need to hear, so listen in!
    “Rest is active detox.” Dr. Errin Weisman

    Badass Spotlight - Christina Gramith, DO

    Badass Spotlight - Christina Gramith, DO

    If you’ve been following me for any amount of time you’ve seen my Badass Spotlight posts. I recently reached out in my Badass Slack group and let them know that I wanted to talk with them for real. Christina Gramith heard the call and reached out and I’m so excited to share this conversation with you. 
    Christina started listening to the podcast before Covid as she was re-entering the workforce after maternity leave. She was struggling with momming and doctoring and the podcast helped her realize that she was not alone. 
    She serves in Flint, an underserved community, and she is constantly double and triple booked. The pace is insane and she’s working hard to find the balance she needs in her life. Which is why she recently started teaching Zumba classes. 
    We chat all about life and work and the various things that need to change to make medicine more attractive and accessible. The goal is to have happy doctors. Let us be productive and serve our patients and we’ll be happy, #amiright ? 
    Listen in to hear all of this goodness!
    “I’m a people pleaser. I’ve always been like that and I think a lot of us are.” Dr. Christina Gramith
     
    In this episode:  [01:30] Welcome to the show, Dr. Christina Gramith!
    [01:57] She shares her life and the magic she is bringing to the world.
    [04:08] Listen as she discusses her burnout journey and when she connected with me.
    [07:16] “A happy doctor is a productive doctor.”
    [09:33] I talk about getting to talk to our US representative.
    [12:50] “We are all figuring out this journey and there is no gold medal at the end of it all.”
    [14:14] “No is a complete sentence” is her favorite Errin sass.
    [15:09] Dr. Gramith shares what she gets out of my Slack group.
    [18:11] Thank you so much for being on the show today!
    [18:23] She shares some final thoughts.

    Solocast - Pause & Heal

    Solocast - Pause & Heal

    Let’s normalize sabbatical healing. 
    Sometimes the bravest thing is the scariest thing to do and that is to say stop. I’m done. Sometimes the most loving and kind thing you can do for yourself is to take time away. 
    You see, when we try to keep pushing through rather than taking a break, we hurt more than ourselves. We hurt the organizations we work for and we do a disservice to our patients when we don’t take care of ourselves. 
    For me it took many different modalities and years away to help me feel healed. For you it may not take that long, but you do have to work on healing. 
    Listen in to hear more and learn how my dog Linus inspired me to get help for myself. 
     
    “Vow to be better than what broke you, heal instead of becoming bitter.” Dr. Errin Weisman
     
    In this episode: [00:38] We are discussing a quote I received recently.
    [01:56] I share a life hack.
    [02:54] It’s okay to take time out!
    [04:21] I talk about my dog Linus, who I adopted, who had to go to doggy rehab.
    [05:45] Sometimes the bravest thing is the scariest thing.
    [06:32] Thank you for listening!

    Being Uncomfortable with Rachel Miller MD

    Being Uncomfortable with Rachel Miller MD

    As physicians we pride ourselves on being the leader in stressful situations. We are calm, cool, collected, and confident that we are making the right decisions to help our patients. Dr. Rachel Miller joins me to talk about why we need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. 
    You see growth and development doesn’t happen when you’re perfectly comfortable with your life and circumstances. We need adversity and hard moments to help us grow and evolve. 
    Dr. Rachel knows this first hand as an introverted executive coach helping female physicians become strong leaders in their organizations and practices. She realized that despite her love of being in her bubble, she can and has done hard things. 
    Becoming a wife and mom was uncomfortable. Becoming a physician was uncomfortable. Receiving coaching in her own career was uncomfortable. Her discomfort gave way to beautiful experiences and results. 
    Listen in to hear more about her journey and how she’s helping women in medicine to take control of their lives and careers. Being uncomfortable is not a bad thing. Let’s normalize it!
      “There’s a lot of growth and a lot of learning that can come from admitting and telling people that you are uncomfortable.” Dr. Rachel Miller 
     
    In this episode:  [02:16] Welcome to the show, Dr. Rachel Miller!
    [02:51] She shares her background and what she is putting out in the world.
    [05:18] Listen as Dr. Rachel discusses how she acquired the role she has now and why she became a coach.
    [08:36] She talks about why she believes being uncomfortable can help you grow.
    [11:03] Dr. Rachel speaks about the different areas of our lives and the need to discuss what makes up an individual.
    [13:31] She structured her coaching around the things she found she needed.
    [15:31] Find out where to connect with Dr. Rachel.
    [16:00] Thank you for being on the show!

    Solocast - Good Enough

    Solocast - Good Enough

    What is good enough? 
    As I’ve started back into clinical practice, I find that my perfectionism keeps creeping back in. I get frustrated with myself when notes aren’t perfect and things don’t go just so. But, I’ve been working on my burnout triggers, so when I notice these things, I give myself grace and move on.
    But this is also bringing up something that I still need to deal with. What is behind my perfectionism? For me it’s fear. It’s the fear of not being good enough or not doing a good enough job. 
    So I’m challenging myself to ask the question. 
    Because people don’t want to see the perfect doctor. They don’t want to see the doctor who is able to check all the boxes. They want to see the person who sees them, knows them, and that they trust to give them the best care humanly possible. HUMANLY possible. 
    You are good enough! 
    “You can make an impact without being perfect.” Dr. Errin Weisman
     
    In this episode: [01:30] Perfectionism is what I want to talk about today.
    [01:45] Is anything perfect in this world? I don’t think so.
    [02:28] I think fear lies under my tendency toward perfectionism.
    [03:17] Establishing a trusting relationship with a patient is more important than having a perfect chart.
    [03:57] Good medicine to me is a listening ear, a compassionate word and giving your time.
    [04:39] The goal is no longer perfection, it is good enough.
    [05:03] You are good enough!
