My approach is personalised to you

All too often doctors jump straight into a specialty path without taking enough time to think about what they actually want from their career and whether that specialty is right for them. Insight Medical Careers support you through every aspect of career planning from understanding what direction is right for you, mapping out the steps you need to take to achieve your goals and preparing for the application and interview process.

Tailored: Based on your own personal needs and goals

Flexibility: Choose the minimum number of sessions or continue to work on a mentoring basis for as long as you like

Experience: Knowledge and insight developed over 30+ years of a diverse career in medicine

Balanced: Medicine is more than a career choice and my approach focuses on balance and a sustainable career path

Thorough: I go to great lengths to ensure I share all the insight and information you need to achieve your goals

Approachable: Rapport is important to getting the best out of our session; I do everything I can to put you at ease

Career Change Coaching & Planning

More people in medicine change career direction than you might think. What’s right for you when you graduate or in the early stages of your career may not stay the same and there are plenty of options that still use the skills and training you’ve worked so hard on. If you’re considering a change, at any stage of your career either within or outside of medicine, I can help you get your goals clear, weigh up the options and set you on a path for a smooth change if that’s what you decide works for you.

Is Career Change Coaching & Planning for You?

Change comes about for many reasons. It’s a big step to stand back and really consider where you would like your career to go. This program is perfect if you:

• Feel dissatisfied with your career or specialty choice
• Feel medicine is no longer for you but want to continue to use your skills outside of medicine
• Are returning to medicine, for example after a career break or having a family

What You’ll Gain

This program will give you:

• An understanding of your options and the steps you can take to work towards your new career
• Alignment with your purpose in your career and how you’d like work to fit in with the rest of your life
Confidence in the skills you have gained in medicine and how they transfer to other industries
• A range of additional resources, references and reading material to support your decision-making

The Coaching Format

This program is delivered across 2 one-on-one sessions; 90 minutes in person or via zoom and a 30 minute follow up session via zoom. It is also accompanied by a detailed Career Strategy Report.
