Where are you currently at in your career path and why did you decide to pursue this career path?
I am a board-certified Internal Medicine Hospitalist based in Atlanta. I decided to become a Hospitalist because I enjoy Hospital Medicine (inpatient) more than I do outpatient medicine. I also like the blocks of days on and days off that Hospital Medicine allow (shift work with no calls).
If you could go back and have a chat with your 1st year postgraduate self, what would you tell her?
Make sure to always love yourself, believe in yourself and encourage yourself. With those three things in place, you will NEVER doubt yourself and the possibilities will be endless!
What advice would you give to a professional student looking to pursue a similar path as yours?
First and foremost, anything you set your mind to, you can achieve. Stay focused the whole time and trust yourself. If I can do it, anyone can!
What is a major challenge you have had to overcome and how did you do so?
A major challenge for me is trying to balance my family life and my career life. I love medicine and taking care of patients is my passion. But now that I have a family, this has become my priority and finding that balance could be a challenge sometimes.
What is your favorite thing about your job?
The impact that I actually have on others is the best feeling in the world. As a physician, you actually get to help someone feel better, you help diagnose and treat diseases and ultimately can change someone’s life just by educating them on making better decisions.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
The best advice I received: don’t ever do anything to please someone else. Do what makes you happy, because in this lifetime you will never be able to please everyone.
We really appreciate the wonderful pearls of wisdom that you shared with us Dr. Beaulieu! Thank you so much for taking the time out of your schedule to do so! I’m personally a firm believer of being able to achieve anything you set your mind to!
