Philippa Kennealy MD MPH CPCC PCC

Philippa Kennealy MD MPH CPCC PCC is President of The Entrepreneurial MD. As a coach with ICF-Certification and a Certified Physician Development Coach, she works with physicians who are striving to become entrepreneurs and build their own successful businesses or thriving practices. They are usually finding little in the way of support, education and resources that are specifically attuned to their business goals.

She also works regularly with physician executives and leaders who are seeking to unleash their potential and transform the organizations, departments or companies that they lead.

She is a board-certified Family Physician who left her own private practice in 1996 to embark on an administrative career as first Medical Director and then CEO of UCLA-Santa Monica Medical Center. Subsequently, she served as Executive VP in two internet start-up companies, before launching her first coaching and speaking business, Oya Consulting.

Philippa is passionate about professional development for physicians that permits them to reinvigorate their careers and overcome burnout. As reported to her repeatedly, physicians long for more control over their lives. And given a decent chance and mentoring, they also excel in leadership positions.

Though one-on-one coaching, she has coached physician executives, department chiefs and medical staff presidents to get results as leaders. She believes that capable, thoughtful and insightful physician leadership is essential to the future of healthcare in the US.

In recent years, her own experience as a physician entrepreneur growing a successful business has ignited her passion in a slightly different direction – that of entrepreneurship.

She has come to see that entrepreneurship offers a very important avenue to breaking through job staleness, and it reintroduces physicians to their own creativity and resourcefulness. This certainly has been true for her.

She firmly believes that, with encouragement, a belief in their own abilities, and a pragmatic approach, physicians are highly capable of making their inventive ideas a reality. They are, after all, a hard-working, dedicated, smart group of people!

Here is what she has to say about her work at The Entrepreneurial MD:

MY COMMITMENT is to be your trusted resource to help you thrive as a physician entrepreneur or physician leader, and to provide the encouragement, accountability and support to help you build your dream business, practice or organization as a leader.

MY DESIRE is to have you experience the creativity, challenge, and aliveness of running your own “show” with confidence!

MY GOAL is to provide the guideposts to help you navigate the steps to starting a new business, launching a new service or product, growing your entrepreneurial venture or expanding your leadership skills and influence.

MY WISH is to have all you physicians say, “I never suspected it could be that much fun!”
