Where Autonomy Ceases to Exist

Dana Corriel, MD shares a story about how a system takes over the ownership of an individual doctor.

March 12, 2024

Someone asked how we keep doctors in medicine, practicing.

There’s no question in my mind as to how.

You keep them in by bringing back autonomy.

No one chooses to stay in a system where others control them.

It’s not complicated. Just needs to get done.

STORYTIME:

I’m building out virtual conferences of all kinds now, in an effort to help individual doctors build up online presence, and promote their expertise.

In doing this, I’ve communicated with many docs who wanted to pitch talks to become speakers.

“Great!” I always tell them. “This will help you build your online brand. Will help you with exposure, to market yourself as a thought leader and get others to reach out and hire you, too.

One doctor told me she couldn’t.

She wanted to take part, mind you, but her hospital system wouldn’t permit it.

She was working for a big player, which I won’t name here. She said they wouldn’t allow her to take part in someone else’s conference.

WHAT?! This is EXACTLY what’s wrong with healthcare today.

 

 

When a third party acts like they own us – literally own us and everything that we do outside of our day jobs – that is where the relationship gets dysfunctional, and where autonomy ceases to exist.

My fellow doctors, we are valuable assets to our employers. But they DO NOT OWN US.

Make sure you join SoMeDocs to promote the autonomy that’s necessary for bettering healthcare today.

Join our projects, spread your expertise, grow your brand autonomously, and we will all win (doctor and patient).
