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.

I went to a conference several weeks ago and there was this buzz about Dr. Sunny Smith, I knew I had to meet her! Everyone who knows her loves her. There is the glow and aura about her that is contagious. She is someone you want to know. I love this podcast because it is a glimpse into her beautiful mind and can help us all be better!

Great inspiration!

I just discovered this podcast and have only listened to one episode (#15 with Dr. Hala Sabry) but I already love it. Thanks for this space where we can hear inspiring stories from fellow physicians. I felt as if I were having a talk with one of my friends from Med school, whom I can rarely see due to our busy schedules. I look forward to listening to previous episodes and getting more inspiration. Congratulations !

Great episode on the power of coaching! I have had the benefit of coaching this past year and it has been transformational. So great to hear Sunny’s podcast on how coaching works to combat physician burnout. I have always been frustrated by the “Physician Wellness” programs that are focused on ice cream or 5 minutes massages in doctor’s lounges and felt that this just added more moral injury. Fortunately I had great coaching this year and knew that it was THE reason for my decreased burnout. However, I only had an “N” of 1. So it was so great to hear Sunny talk about the evidence not just for me but for physicians around the country. Thanks Sunny, not just for being a coach, but for sharing the evidence, and getting more women to sign up for coaching and transform their lives!
