The TPR platform is where you create your life in medicine on your own terms.

Through our 5 Paths to Happiness and Personal Fulfillment Model we provide guides, resources, tools, coaches, and events to help you construct the life you want.

The 5 Paths are your Wealth, Practice, Health, Relationships, and Personal Development and we use these paths as guide posts to order our lives.

Your Wealth – Are you optimizing your current monetary resources? Are they working for you to enhance the quality of your life today? Are your financial goals and plans being executed, or are you just someone else’s customer executing their plan with your wealth?

Your Practice – whether you are in clinical practice or in a non-clinical career, you are still a doctor and there are tools and services that are available to enhance your specific professional journey.

Your Health – How many of us have sacrificed our own personal, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health in pursuit of being the “perfect” doctor? How many times have we put the needs of our patients and family ahead of our own?

Your Relationships – The good news, Physician’s divorce at a rate much lower than the population at large, the sad news, physicians have a much higher rate of suicide than the general population. So how do we create more fulfilling relationships that sustain and undergird us as grow?

Your Personal Development – Are you feeling restless or stagnant? Do you feel like you have more in you than just being a physician? Do you have gifts and talents that are being unexplored? Are you aligned in your passion and your purpose? What if you no longer want to practice clinical medicine?

TPR is here to help guide us through all these areas at our own pace. So, join us as we as journey down The Physician’s Road.
