In this episode, you will learn:
Dr. Sunny Smith is a clinical professor of family medicine and public health at the University of California, San Diego. She focuses her academic career on medical student education and underserved medicine. After a bike accident in Moorea left her broken arms and facial bones, and in full arm casts, she wasn’t able to work, care for herself or even hold a book for a few months. During this time, she discovered podcasts and listened to every single episode of the podcasts of Brooke Castillo and Dr. Katrina Ubell, who also happens to be the very first guest on this podcast! She found these coaching concepts really transformed the way she looked at her life. She then found coaching so influential that she became a certified coach through, “The Life Coach School”. She combines coaching, along with her experience as a medical educator, with the goal of improving the lives of other physicians through podcasts, coaching and retreats. She focuses her coaching exclusively on women physicians and helps them stop sacrificing themselves for others so they can finally start to enjoy this life that they worked so hard to create.
