“Starting to create accountability partners, those people who you can be vulnerable with and being able to utilize them regularly and strategically to say, ‘Hey, you said you were going to do this. Did it happen?’” Omalara Uwemedimo, MD, MPH

In today’s episode, Coach Gabriella Dennery MD talks with with pediatrician and entrepreneur Dr. Omalara Uwemedimo. Dr. Omolara Thomas Uwemedimo is CEO and founder of Melanin & Medicine and works as an empowerment coach and career transition strategist to provide Black women physicians & other health professionals with support through community, courses, and coaching. She has worked as a board-certified pediatrician for over 15 years and an academic faculty for over a decade, mentoring women in medicine, who have been marginalized and minoritized. As a career transition strategist, she provides women with culturally-informed strategies and systems to reduce burnout, achieve personal and professional fulfillment, rediscover their purpose, and ultimately, achieve their vision for life, without struggle or sacrifice. Dr. Uwemedimo discusses her entrepreneurial journey and how she has found success and fulfillment while also guiding other women to do the same.

Her career has been defined by a passion for social justice, being an advocate, a professor, and a researcher committed to health equity for both patients and providers. She has worked as a global physician across sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean. From this work, she founded Strong Children Wellness, an innovative family practice that addresses both unmet health and social needs for families in New York City.

At DocWorking, our specialty is Coaching Physicians to achieve the best of life and medicine. 

Doctors devote their lives to caring for others. But does that mean they must sacrifice their own health and wellbeing? Absolutely not!

At DocWorking, we have developed a unique way to embrace it all.

The caring for others that you do so selflessly AND the caring for YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY that you crave in order to bring it all into the perfect balance specific to YOU.

What if we told you that you CAN have it all? The career you dreamed of when you decided to become a doctor AND the life outside of medicine that you desire?

DocWorking empowers physicians to get back on the path to achieving their dreams.

Working in the medical field is fulfilling but it can also be exhausting. Physicians often sacrifice their personal time to carry out their duties. They want to go on vacations, start passion projects, or start side businesses but finding the time seems impossible. Recently, more and more physicians are giving outsourcing a try. Outsourcing allows you to delegate tasks to virtual assistants so you can free up your time and finally do whatever it is you’ve been wanting to do.
