Karen Barnard, MBBCh, MPH

Dr. Barnard is passionate about guiding and empowering physicians to create the careers they deserve. Through her own career transition, coach training, and work with physician clients, she has developed in-depth expertise and experience to guide physicians through career change. Dr. Barnard graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand medical school in South Africa. She moved to the US where she completed residency and fellowship training. She is board certified in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology. During her 30-year career in medicine, she was fortunate to practice as a clinician educator and held several leadership roles. After she hung up her stethoscope, she transitioned to doing what she loves most- helping other physicians to find joy and fulfillment in their careers. She completed her coach training and certification with the Co-Active Coaches Training Institute and is a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coaching Federation. Dr. Barnard is the founder of Dr. Karen Barnard, LLC, a professional development, and career coaching practice. She sees her work as helping physicians discover their next best-fit career.
