About the Podcast

I’m Rebecca Lauderdale, and I’m a primary care internist in the Deep South. I know what it’s like to think flourishing isn’t possible.  But through my own experience, I’ve become a student of life and flourishing. Now I believe that it IS possible for us all to live full, rewarding lives by our own definitions.

I realized fairly early on that many of the things I struggled with were directly related to the fact that I’m a woman.  Physicians of all genders struggle with burnout and dissatisfaction that spills over into their personal lives at a much higher rate than the general population but for women physicians it’s even worse.  There are significant social and cultural barriers it can take a lot of courage to work against our conditioning and against others’ expectations so that we can live in a way that works for us and for the other women that come after us.

It is so important to have a group of people, a tribe, who understand what you’re going through and can empathize, encourage, and tell it to you straight. That’s why I created the Women Physicians Flourish podcast  – so we can join our tribes and recognize the power we have to change things for the better, for ourselves, our families, our patients, and other women in healthcare.
