Having struggled in med school herself, Dr. Ahuja understands the challenges and stresses of medical education - how to prepare for them, how to conquer them, and how to have a successful and fulfilling career. Her experiences and passion for teaching motivates her to create and deliver innovative programs through Docs in Leadership, an organization she founded to deliver leadership and wellness curriculum, currently gaps in formal medical education.
The purpose of this program is to help medical trainees thrive in their medical education and beyond, by providing tools and strategies to manage stress effectively and leadership skills to empower and inspire them, all rooted in emotional intelligence.
In practice since 2003, Dr. Ahuja is a surgeon, private-practice owner, award winning medical educator, national academic leader, bestselling author, certified health executive, certified emotional intelligence instructor, and founder of Docs in Leadership.
Dr. Ahuja's goal is to connect with MD trainees and colleagues to help them thrive, personally and professionally, transforming them into emotionally intelligent physicians and leaders so they can feel fulfilled and positively contribute to the profession while maintaining their well-being.
