Dr. Michelle Mudge-Riley trained as a physician but realized early in her career that wanted to transition into non-clinical medicine. In doing so learned lessons that are not usually taught to physicians. In the process has become a successful serial entrepreneur her current company, Physicians Helping Physicians serves physicians who are interested in figuring out how to make their career work for them. The community is unique because it’s not a “cookie cutter” approach to career transition or strategy. Every doctor is different and is coming from a different place. Some are 1-2 years or more out of residency and others have been in private practice for 10 years or more before finding this community. It’s been our experience that 80-90% of the time, physicians who work with this community will have a clear focus and career direction within 6-8 months. Most doctors have been struggling with this on their own for years, if not decades.
In this episode, Michelle teaches us the importance of networking for career advancement.
