Physician Teleclass & Retreat with Pamela Wible, M.D.

Feb 8 - May 9, 2015

(Retreat May 5 - 9, 2015)


Are you tired of assembly-line medicine?

Do you feel trapped in a soul-sucking job?

Are you sick of being abused like this fine physician?

The TRUTH is:

It’s not unusual for doctors to be bullied and abused at work.
It’s not unusual for physicians to feel depressed—even suicidal.
It IS unusual for physicians to get help.

You do NOT have to take the abuse.

You deserve to be happy.

You CAN reclaim your profession—and yourself!

Be the doctor you always imagined.

You CAN deliver ideal medical care—in an ideal clinic!
(Or make your current clinic more ideal.)

Meet the doctor who opened America’s first ideal clinic—designed entirely by patients! Learn from the physician who is on the front lines delivering ideal care daily to her patients—and her colleagues.

Pamela Wible is a family physician born into a family of physicians. Her parents warned her not to pursue medicine, but she followed her heart only to discover: To heal her patients she had to first heal her profession.

After six jobs in ten years, I was sick of the abuse. I was tired of interrupting panicked patients to say, “Sorry, we’re out of time,” when all I wanted to do was smile and ask, “How can I help you?” I dreamt of returning to my college waitressing job just so I could be nice to people again. When I left medicine, I fell into a deep depression. Suicidal, I didn’t get out of bed for six weeks. Until I awoke with a prophetic dream—an epiphany. I saw doctors hand-in-hand with patients healing one another while building their own clinics—together. Called to action, I jumped out of bed, notified the newspaper editor, and led a series of town hall meetings.

Pamela Wible held nine town hall meetings where she invited her community to design their own ideal clinic. She collected 100 pages of testimony, adopted ninety percent of the feedback, and created her town’s clinic one month later! Open since 2005, Dr. Wible's community clinic has sparked a movement in which citizens are designing ideal clinics nationwide. Her model is taught in medical schools and featured in Harvard School of Public Healthʼs Renegotiating Health Care: Resolving Conflict to Build Collaboration, a textbook examining major trends with the potential to change American heath care.

Dr. Wible is coauthor of two award-winning anthologies, Goddess Shift: Women Leading for a Change, with Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and other visionary women; and Optimism! Cultivating the Magic Quality that Can Extend Your Lifespan, Boost Your Energy, and Make You Happy Now, alongside world leaders such as Steve Jobs and Jimmy Carter.

She is author of the bestselling, Pet Goats & Pap Smears: 101 Medical Adventures to Open Your Heart & Mind, a book that celebrates America’s ideal medical care movement. She has been interviewed by CNN, ABC, CBS, and is a frequent guest on NPR.

What other doctors are saying:

“Meet a doctor with a dream. Without marching, picketing, or waiting for legislation, she inspires a grassroots movement to restore humanity to health care. One doctor can change the world of medicine. Dr. Pamela Wible is medicine’s Martin Luther King.” ~ Neil Shulman, M.D., author and associate producer of Doc Hollywood

“Medicine must focus on people, not just diagnoses. Dr. Wible helps patients and physicians reconnect as human beings and heal one another.”~ Bernie Siegel, M.D., author of A Book of Miracles and Faith, Hope & Healing

“Pamela Wible makes you wish—as a patient—that she was your doctor. And as a doctor, that you had her practice. There is a joy, a pleasure, in the practice of medicine that all doctors know, but few live the way Dr. Wible does.” ~ Lisa Sanders, M.D., author of Every Patient Tells a Story, New York Times Magazine columnist, and technical advisor to House, M.D

“Duh! When your health-care delivery system is not fulfilling to patient or caregiver, of course you make YOUR ideal medical system as Pamela has done.” ~ Patch Adams, M.D., inspiration behind the hit movie Patch Adams

“I met Pamela at a conference she offered—at no cost to physicians—where she encouraged us to answer one question: ‘What is ideal health care?’ This question changed my life. I just resigned from my job to open my ideal clinic! I’m eternally grateful for Dr. Wible and her book. She helped me figure out how to bring joy back to my daily medical practice. I, in turn, vow to do whatever I can to help other physicians practice medicine with the love and joy she so selflessly shared with me. Pamela also found me a husband (or at least a good romance)!” ~ Sheila Kilbane, M.D., loving her ideal clinic in Charlotte, NC

Meet the people who just attended the retreat:

But I feel stuck. I’m scared. . .
Can Dr. Wible really help ME?

Dr. Wible has been coaching doctors for a decade and leading physician retreats since 2010. She has helped hundreds of physicians get unstuck and create ideal medical practices. She understands physician depression and suicide because she has been there herself. As a survivor of her own deep despair, Dr. Wible has become the national voice for physician suicide prevention.

Watch her TEDx talk “How To Get Naked with Your Doctor” in which Dr. Wible addresses physician suicide and celebrates America’s ideal medical care movement with the world.

TEDx talk

I feel overwhelmed! Where do I start?
Can I really create an ideal clinic?
Can I really have fun at work?
