"I had a degree from a prestigious college, had been accepted to my top residency program, had a bright future with a decent salary and job security waiting for me, and all I felt was angry and afraid. I didn't want what came with it, the practice of medicine." 
Dr. Michelle Mudge-Riley, Physicians in Transition - Interviews with 25 doctors who successful reinvented themselves

A very sobering, yet powerful quote from my next guest Dr. Michelle Mudge-Riley. Michelle is open about her story of realizing that clinical medicine was not for her. After graduating from medical school, Dr. Mudge-Riley went through both uncertainty and stress, yet, she found her way and a strong community of physicians who thought and felt the same way she did.

This experience led her to create Physicians Helping Physicians, her coaching business for doctors looking to transition to non-clinical careers.  For over 10 years, Dr. Mudge-Riley has been helping physicians find satisfaction and solutions with their medical careers. Besides the coaching business, Dr. Mudge-Riley’s work has been featured in numerous media outlets including KevinMD, The D.O., and The Physician Executive Journal.

Things you’ll learn in this interview:

  • How lucrative the field of career coaching is compared to clinical practice
  • Common reasons for dissatisfaction she sees among her clients
  • Her take on social media and why she encourages her clients to use it
  • Role play: What’s her advice for the 36 yr old CT surgeon who is fresh out of fellowship but can’t see himself opening chests for the next 25 years
  • How she answers #imnotjustadoc

  1. I think that this was very insightful Dr. Darko. I understand how some docs would be interested in transitioning out of clinical medicine. This is an excellent resource for doctors who wish to do this, to do so. Keep up the good work. I’m looking forward to your next podcast.
