This Docs in Leadership program is unique
in that it will not only challenge your perceptions
about how you problem solve, communicate, and plan for life, but it provides you an opportunity to listen to others' experiences going through the program as well. This program covers all the bases that a young professional needs to navigate the journey through medicine.
What was most useful for me was that the program does not seek to provide you with cookie cutter answers to life scenarios, rather it provides you with the tools to apply to your individualized problems. Dr. Ahuja's A.D.M.I.T. framework is a practical and easy to use tool to navigate life stressors and decision making.
In a career that has so much uncertainty, the framework, and by extension the Docs in Leadership program, provides a step by step approach to conquering the unknown.
Lastly, the group coaching sessions are incredibly valuable. Even as somebody who couldn't attend most of these sessions in real time, the benefit I received from watching the readily available recordings was incredible.
It's so rare that we have access to the thoughts and ideas our colleagues have when navigating this career. While our journey in the program is individual, the group coaching sessions give a sense of collaboration and support that is so refreshing. I wholeheartedly recommend this program to anyone seeking to find new ways to approach the difficult decisions, situations, and challenges found in this career.
As an added bonus, this program extends beyond the career realm, and also empowers you to learn more about yourself!
