Medicine is truly the most noble profession. It is an honor and a privilege to be responsible for the health and well being of our society. As physicians, we aim to relieve human suffering. Then why are so many of us unhappy, stressed, and even considering leaving medicine?

Characteristics of self sacrifice and delayed gratification allowed women physicians to get through medical school and residency. Yet these very same traits can cause increasing distress and may no longer be serving us. This podcast encourages women physicians to reflect on the wise words of the Hippocratic Oath and consider what more they could be doing to maintain the utmost respect for their OWN human life and its quality.

Women physicians are strong, intelligent, resilient, hard working, insightful, and live their lives in service of others. Through this podcast, Dr Sunny Smith reminds them that they must first care for themselves so that they may care for others. As a practicing physician and certified coach, she offers tools that can be used to help them take a closer look at their life right now, what they love and what they'd like to change. She helps physicians set goals and empowers them to take steps toward creating their best lives starting today.

Just what the doctor ordered!

As a not-quite-burned out doctor, these podcasts have been a major factor in my ability to hang on this past year, and to make myself more accountable about the choices I make (and don’t make) toward my own happiness. Sunny’s way of coaching is like talking to a trusted friend. She’s a true asset to the women physician community!

Essential!

I really appreciate Sunny's humility and willingness to share. Medicine can be a beatdown, and Sunny is right here to help us/show us how to get back up.

Everything we should have learned in Med school

Take a listen. The matter of fact style and uplifting message is WORTH your time on your commute to tune in.

I wish I’d learned this stuff in Med school or at least in residency. It would have laid the groundwork for preventing burnout and directing the compassion we all have for others, toward myself.
