Philippa Kennealy is President and founder of The Entrepreneurial MD. She is a business advisor, coach and teacher to physicians grappling with the challenges of launching, building or growing their own successful practices or businesses.
She is a board-certified Family Physician who left her own private practice in 1996 to embark on an administrative career as first Medical Director and then CEO of UCLA-Santa Monica Medical Center. Subsequently, she served as Executive VP in two internet start-up companies, before launching her first coaching and speaking business, Oya Consulting.
Philippa is passionate about professional development for physicians that permits them to reinvigorate their careers and overcome burnout. As reported to her repeatedly, physicians long for more control over their lives. She believes that entrepreneurship is one way to reintroduce physicians to their own creativity and resourcefulness. Her experience of working with physicians has shown her that, with encouragement, a belief in their own abilities, and a pragmatic approach, they are highly capable of making their inventive ideas a reality. They are, after all, a hard-working, dedicated, smart group of people!
David and Steve started ResidencyInterviewQuestions.com to help level the playing field. Collectively, David and Steve completed more than 60 interviews. Both matched at top programs in two of the most competitive specialities (Dermatology and Ophthalmology). They also interviewed at community and academic medical centers for their preliminary medicine year training. David and Steve met in person during their first year of preliminary medicine training at Presence Saint Joseph Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. We learned from our international medical graduate co-residents the challenges they faced interviewing. With their direct input, RIQ was born.
