Sydney Ashland is a Medical Practice Consultant with 20+ years experience using her unique, Rapid Pattern Integration Technique and proven business strategies to effect permanent change in physicians’ lives.
Welcome! Prior to launching my private consulting practice in 2004, I worked in healthcare administration setting up Hospitalist programs, writing policy and procedures for hospitals, coordinating and overseeing project management for the offices of chief medical officer and chief of staff. In addition, I have personal entrepreneurial experience spanning the full life cycle of a company from start-up to scale to sale. I specialize in medical practice development and workplace strategies for physicians, medical students & medical professionals worldwide. Nothing is more exciting than watching a roomful of exhausted, depleted professionals come alive when attending one of our picturesque retreats. I help medical students, physicians and other healthcare professionals maneuver the very complex issues of today’s healthcare environments. There are answers! You don’t need to suffer in silence any longer. Let me help you create your ideal personal and professional life. Together, we can identify the perfect strategies that will work for you. Often the blocks that keep us from living our full potential are rooted in trauma/PTSD from medical training, financial anxiety, grief or perfectionism. I work with physicians and medical students in retreat, private one-on-one intensives and worldwide via Skype or phone.
Some of the areas that I specialize in are:
- how to manage the challenges of charting, new EMRs and procrastination
- strategies to resolve conflict with Program Directors
- successful study schedules with anxiety reduction
- STEP and BOARD test anxiety
- human rights violations and what to do
- developing an assertive plan to protect physical and emotional health in residency
- REALISTIC work/life balance
- depression, anxiety, helplessness
I am passionate about my work with the Live Your Dream/Ideal Medical Care movement, spearheaded by Pamela Wible, M.D. Nothing is more gratifying than this work with despairing medical professionals who have all but given up on their hopes and dreams. Once the physical, emotional, energetic or strategic issues are clearly identified in session, treatment can begin. Healing and transformation is commonplace and makes what I do one of the most rewarding and challenging careers anyone could have.
