Origin Story


The creation of the Physician Transformation Institute was driven by an urgent need to address the disturbing reality of a healthcare system that is failing those who work within it. 

  • 2 out of every 3 physicians are burned out

  • 55% of healthcare professionals¬†plan to leave the field by 2025

  • An estimated¬†1 physician takes their life every day.

 The current healthcare system leaves over 80% of doctors dissatisfied, while discussions of mental health remain stigmatized. Doctors are underrepresented in positions of influence within medical systems and among companies developing disruptive medical technologies.

This is not the system we signed up for. 

We were meant for more. 

We must take action to transform the status quo and provide doctors with the resources, training, and support we need to thrive, both personally and professionally.

Our Mission


We empower physicians for personal and business growth, transformative leadership, and community impact, with a focus on spiritual development and legacy.

We bridge generations of physicians to guide and impact public health by integrating ancient wisdom with modern medicine, creating a network of leaders, and supporting physician-driven technological development.

Our passion is to impact public health by guiding and empowering physicians to lead and make a difference.

Through utilizing ancient wisdom and incorporating it into modern medicine, we aim to bring the human element back into healthcare and create a lasting impact.

We believe in the potential of the physician community and aim to cultivate skills and abilities to drive positive change in their local communities.

By fostering strong relationships with non-profits, educational institutions, and public health organizations, we strive to create a network of leaders who will revolutionize healthcare.

Join us in our efforts to make a cultural shift in the healthcare community!


Burnout is the delta between our identity and our perceived reality. Only by unboxing ourselves, can we take the first step towards bridging that delta and unlocking the boundless potential that lies within.
