Many doctors struggle with a lack of knowledge, structure and time when developing a career in industry.

So we designed this innovative flexible program to help you to build it faster and sustainably.

The richest people in the world look for and build networks; everyone else looks for work.

  • Move to industry faster
  • Get paid 6 figures plus
  • Build a sustainable career on your own terms

Growing your career beyond clinical can pave the way for an extraordinary and rewarding alternative career.

However, we see doctors experience the same frustrations time and time again…


  • The lack of structure and approach to developing an industry career or business is hugely confusing
  • You’re applying for multiple jobs without getting a single interview
  • Networking or selling feel like dirty words..


  • You want to flexibly work for yourself but not sure how to find clients that will pay
  • You think you need to take a massive pay cut to get started in industry
  • You’re aware you lack the commercial mindset needed to progress with any industry opportunity

Were any of these problems familiar to you?

What if we told you, the problem wasn’t YOU?

Maria, a junior doctor, wanted to apply to the top consulting firms but confidence and lack of experience held her back.


Simmy, a GP, wanted to start a practice in Lifestyle Medicine and menopause because she could see a massive gap in her local market.


Niall, a Medical Consultant and Educational Supervisor, wanted to learn more about opportunities for doctors to grow portfolio careers in industry alongside medicine, so he could better support his trainees and colleagues.

Founders Story

Join The Fellowship Prequel: Commercial Starter Course

– Our value beyond traditional medical practice in the world of work is limitless.

If we’re unhappy with what we have today, it’s our responsibility as doctors to change this.

For the benefit of our patients, ourselves, healthcare and the world.


When I first started exploring alternative careers after many years of feeling like I’d made a huge mistake in pursuing medicine; I noticed something.

  • Doctors who had left medicine – did so mysteriously in a cloud of taboo.
  • Those who ‘succeeded’ in another career, seem to have done this either ‘accidentally’ or without much effort at all.
  • Doing another qualification (or 10), seemed to be the thing to do to prove one’s worth in another career. It was hugely costly in time and money – with no guarantees.
  • The lack of structure that I was used to, was a huge barrier for my moving forward.

The reality is – as a doctor – moving over to any career beyond conventional medical practice is HARD. 


Since (before) we started medical school, we’ve lived and trained in a bubble, designed to keep us working in a certain way in a pretty old institutional fashion. 

Our value beyond traditional medical practice in the world of work is limitless.

If we’re unhappy with what we have today, it’s our responsibility as doctors to change this.

For the benefit of our patients, ourselves, healthcare and the world.


So what did help me in my journey?

  • A self-designed structure on how to move forward
  • Insider information and inspiration from a vast network of doctors who had moved successfully into other career paths
  • Coaching and mentorship for my chosen path
  • A focused mindset
  • Time


With this, I was able to:

  • Create a career and lifestyle that directly suited my needs. I am now in full control of my work schedule, earn much more in less time, can take the holidays I want and spend precious time with my family and young children as they grow.
  • Gain invaluable insight into how to succeed in changing careers beyond the myth and folklore, by developing a powerful network of doctors with a similar mindset
  • Focus on the steps I needed to take to do so, without too much time and money wastage


And most importantly – 

Dedicate myself to supporting a global community of talented doctors seeking diverse careers to do the same on their own terms

Doctors like you!

How long is the program?

The program starts off with an initial 6 months structured program, after which you will receive a Membership Award.

To work towards attaining the Fellowship, you will be invited to participate in live events and demonstrate personal progress for a minimum of 6 months.

If you want to take longer to achieve these milestones, you can, however the limit to achieving either is 30 months.

Which sectors do you cater for?

Because the foundational principles are the same and there is lots of overlap, this program is sector agnostic.

We’ve had doctors developing leadership careers in the public sector, starting their own coaching business, opening a new menopause clinic, consulting in Pharma whilst working in the public sector, developing a career in med tech, applying for the Big 3 Consulting firms – and more.


We also have plenty of content geared towards specific specialist interests – particularly Health Tech, Pharma and Consulting.


We have many doctors in our network who are already practicing successful careers in these sectors and can’t wait to connect you with them!

How much time commitment is there on this program?

This program is designed to be flexible around your other commitments; e.g. holidays, work, on calls, family, activities etc.!

Our minimum recommended time commitment for at least the first 6 month period to get the most out of your investment and to make continuous progression is approximately 2-3 hours a week.

Live group sessions / Doctors Mess usually takes place monthly on the last Wednesday of the month between 7-8:30pm UK time.

We also run regular masterclasses which are either live small group sessions or panel discussions – all included in your programme.

All sessions are remote and will be recorded for your reference.

We also aim to hold up to 2 in person retreat day per year.


Is getting a job or setting up a business the endpoint of the program?

Not at all.

Getting a job is a fantastic early milestone, however it’s actually the beginning of creating an important foundation for yourself in growing a career in industry.

The program is designed to not only help you move forward into industry, but to navigate some of the challenges you experience in building your personal brand in your role or as a solopreneur – as well as progressing into a great leader within your sector.

How is the program delivered?

Remotely (online) and includes a mixture of:

Group mentoring and coaching sessions where we deep dive into your challenges and career goals, co-developing your Personal Development Plan as part of a peer 2 peer learning process

Online collaborative group learning sessions with delivered content and peer 2 peer learning

Up to 2 in person retreat days


Who is delivering the program?

The program is led by Dr. Abeyna Bubbers-Jones and delivered by a diverse group of doctors, industry leaders and Fellows from our previous cohorts.

Many working in industry and from diverse organisations.


How much does it cost?

Cohort 4 – starting September 2024

£525 + VAT per month for 6 months


£2600 + VAT – upfront payment with a bonus 1-1 mentoring session

Do you have set intake dates?

Intakes are currently 6 monthly. The next intake starts in March 2024.

Do I have to be in the UK to join?

No. You can join this program from anywhere in the world!

In the first 2 Cohorts, we’ve had doctors in Australia, New Zealand and Europe – with interest from doctors in Canada!

I've done an MBA. Do I need this program?

We have had doctors with MBAs on this program who joined for the live learnings, high value network and opportunity to really make huge mindset shifts to achieve their goals.

I want to focus on X module first because of my needs. Do I have to wait to access?

You can access any part of the online self-study that you feel is most relevant to you, at any time.

We also use the live sessions to problem solve challenges that are relevant to you NOW.

Beyond this, we have a structured approach for the first 6 months to ensure you have the best foundation to building a career beyond clinical.

This program seems to be for doctors who want to go to industry as solopreneurs or as employees. Why?

The skillset and mindset to do both are very similar with many overlaps.

We also recognise that many doctors do both as part of a portfolio career or as a stepping stone to one full time.

We believe it is essential that all doctors learn what’s required to succeed in both situations so they have flexible choice in how they develop their career over time.

We will have sessions which cater to both groups and sessions for defined interest groups.
