We Physicians are not given permission to try new career paths or explore the creative aspects of our personalities. We are trained that there is one way to be a Doctor—the full-time clinical, research, or academic way. We are here to tell you that there are no rules. You are allowed to explore the full scope of opportunities that your medical degree and license will allow. Doctoring Differently was created to teach you about the vast world of opportunities that are available to Physicians from all specialties. You have permission to create the career that you deserve and Doctoring Differently can help you get there.

Yes. All Physicians can Doctor Differently.
When Dr. Naomi began Doctoring Differently, she often reminded myself “You were a Doctor before you were a pediatrician”. Our hard-earned critical thinking skills often transcend our individual specialties. We have been conditioned that clinical medicine is our only career option when, as Physicians, we have the single most valuable degrees and skillsets in the world. Those skills are transferable across many disciplines and types of work.
Many of the lessons taught in the Doctoring Differently course are applicable to Physicians around the world. You are welcome to join Doctoring Differently course.
