The most helpful story is often not the one where you succeeded, but the many other times you tried and failed. Isn’t that the very essence of learning…learning from one’s mistakes.
We want to create a community where you can help support each other. A central place for women to view articles and practical information, with all content created specifically for you. Topics as broad as reducing stress, balancing a family and your career, buying your first home and having a fulfilling retirement.
We are all educated professionals, but that doesn’t mean we have the answers to what life throws at us. Stories and experiences shared by peers can be invaluable when needing to make a decision or overcome a challenge. Hearing from others who have “been there done that” is an incredibly powerful tool. There is also great benefit in hearing from experts: people who have spent their career assisting and providing advice to medical professionals. They have seen firsthand the difficulties and challenges that are unique to women doctors.
You may be an undergraduate starting your medical studies, trying to join a program, taking a break with family, running your own private practice or about to retire. Everyone one of you will be at different stages of life and career and all of you will have something to offer and share. This is what we want drtodr to be about. Creating a community where you can share your thoughts, ideas, feedback or stories to support one and other.
In that time, we have had the pleasure of working with many wonderful women. To cut a very long story short, lately a number of our women doctors have commented to us that there is very little advice and support available online in regard to not only their career, but the specific rewards and challenges you face being a woman doctor.
There is nowhere you can go to prepare yourself for the unknown or gain practical advice. During a meeting one woman raised the idea of an online resource, and in subsequent conversations it was “suggested” that we should be developing this (we were basically told to go away and create something!). We mentioned an online resource to some of the other women doctors in our community, and unanimously we were told it was a great idea and area of need. We are very fortunate to be in a position where we can devote time and resources to developing this tool for you.
Work with us
One of the best reasons we love working with and being part of the female medical community is your altruistic attitude.
Every doctor we work with is genuinely interested in helping and supporting others. Nothing feels better than helping someone who is having difficulty, especially if you have been in the same position yourself.
If you have a story to tell or would like to share your experiences, we would love to hear them. You never know who will benefit from it.
