# 32: repair Burnout feat. Jimmy Turner, MD

Dr. Jimmy Turner is a practicing anesthesiologist and personal finance blogger, podcaster, and author of The Physician Philosopher’s Guide to Personal Finance.

He is also a doctor who practices academic anesthesiology and has repaid $ 200,000 in student loan debt in 19 months and increased his net worth by $ 250,000 in just 12 months of graduation.

During training, a few books and a few conversations opened his eyes to the fact that he had a lot more debt than he should have in training, but (anyway) he was still financially independent in his early 40s.

In light of the burnout epidemic in medicine, he thought the message of financial independence was timely and important. And for all the great work done by other doctor funding websites, there was still a great need.

Now let’s look at five things that we discussed in this episode:

  • Why he chose the name “Physician Philosopher”
  • Signs of burnout
  • How he found coaching
  • The difference between therapy and coaching
  • How to find the right trainer

Here’s a breakdown of how this episode plays out …


This notion that these are not true and false thoughts, only thoughts that serve you and thoughts that don’t is a very powerful idea.


Coaching for the regular doctor? This is actually pretty new and so new in fact that there are 140 doctors who are trainers and have just gone through a life coach.


I think there is a lot to be gained from having group coaching and seeing other people trained in front of you on what group coaching is.
