Naomi Lawrence-Reid, M.D. is a pediatrician and founder of Doctoring Differently, a course and coaching platform designed to teach physicians of all specialties how to transition out of full-time clinical and academic practice while starting lucrative and flexible careers that best utilize their medical training and experience. We discuss all of her different income streams, like per-diem, locum tenens, veteran and social security disability exams, medical expert witness work, aesthetics, how she got into each of them, how we can get started, and why it is OK for a pediatrician to inject Botox into adults.
Dr. Lawrence-Reid initially intended on a career as a pediatric emergency medicine specialist, but she was unwilling to yield to the confines of restrictive hospital contracts, non-negotiable salaries, exhaustive administrative duties, and oppressive call schedules. She developed the Doctoring Differently curriculum in order to give physicians the tools to choose themselves and transform their individual passions and expertise into gratifying careers with increased income, tremendous freedom, and enhanced quality of life.
Dr. Lawrence-Reid is a proud Boston-area native currently based in San Diego, California. She attended Wake Forest University, University of Massachusetts Medical School, and she completed her pediatrics residency at Children’s Hospital at Montefiore/Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, New York.
