  • recognise that the art of medicine enhances the science of medicine
  • understand that being professionally engaged with good intention is not enough to truly provide optimal care to patients

  • take better care of themselves
  • be more self aware
  • communicate and connect more effectively with patients and/or colleagues
  • want to use their people skills more skillfully! 

* Doctors in training means the first four years of working as a doctor after finishing medical school

Don't have time?

These skills can make you more efficient AND more effective!

The Thriving Doctor Applied is designed with the realities of your medical life in mind.

The curriculum is delivered in 2 hourly workshops, after hours. Highly interactive, in a closed community of practice.

The art of medicine delivers better health outcomes for patients and makes your career more sustainable.

These skills are like a long term investment, the earlier you develop them the more benefit you and your patients gain.

Learning over time, in short windows, within a closed community is a powerful learning context for adults.

We have years of experience helping doctors learn in this way. Learning over time this way actively embeds interpersonal and emotional intelligence skills, allowing you to consolidate what you learn and to apply your skills immediately.

When will you prioritise your wellbeing and your interpersonal skills?

What do you need so that you can prioritise being skilled in the art of medicine?

Think about this work not in terms of time, rather as an investment that gives you energy and practical skills to do your work effectively and efficiently.

This is the most cost effective way for you to work directly and regularly with Sharee Johnson.

Doctors who have worked with Sharee


Thank you for writing The Thriving Doctor. It provides insight and techniques for all doctors to understand the systems we work within and provides the much needed tools to develop our leadership and interpersonal skills. It also reminds us to lean into our vulnerability and humility, which were the very things that attracted us into medicine in the first place.

This book helps us be the doctors we want to be and our patients need us to be.

-Dr Edwina Coghlan, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, Teacher and Mentor 


The Thriving Doctor is a call to arms.
Sharee’s own experiences, and the experiences of caring for doctors through coaching, shine a powerful light into our profession from the outside and give hope that we can each learn to build more sustainability into our working lives as well as take better care of our colleagues. Our best imagined future MUST be one where both doctors and patients can flourish, and Sharee invites us to try new strategies that have been absent from medical education and culture for far too long.

-Dr Elisabeth Wearne, GP and Medical Educator


Sharee structures her book in a logical sequence, with practical ‘to do’ tasks that allow us to pause and reflect, and indeed self-discover. This book complements the workshops and courses run by Sharee and allows us to explore these concepts in further depth, almost like a core textbook and reference.

I would urge all junior doctors to read this to pick up a few learning points. It will also be worth revisiting later, as new challenges in your career or new situations arise or new levels of maturity are reached. I know if I had discovered this earlier I would have avoided a fair amount of hurt and distress, and be much further along the path to thriving.

-Dr Antony Wong, GP Anaesthetist


Sharee's book is a practical guide to the continued professional development needs we all have, but have not been made explicit to us through our training. This book can help us sustain and then build towards the model of a Thriving Doctor.

-Dr Bree Wyeth, Psychiatrist
