Vista, CA – Medicine is a team sport. Communicating effectively as a leader is always to the patient’s benefit.

Dr. Wendy Arnold believes leaders make better clinicians. Dr. Wendy is the founder of Dr. Wave, where she is dedicated to developing physician leaders to their full potential through coaching, workshops and speaking engagements. Dr. Wendy helps clients develop the leadership skills to thrive in challenging environments while increasing team productivity.

“Physicians are not educated on leadership as part of their clinical training,” says Dr. Wendy. “Once they get to the hospital, they become the subject matter expert, and are not empowered to do anything beyond their clinical work. That’s why a lot of physicians feel frustrated and burned out: they are not empowered to be leaders. That's the barrier that has to break down.”

Dr. Wendy is board-certified in family medicine and integrative medicine with 25 years of experience as a Marine and Naval officer.

“Physician leadership is about stepping up for that one patient,” says Dr. Wendy. “This problem is a lot bigger in the civilian world. My experience, including work as a physician in the civilian healthcare network, has helped me see that I can help, and I would like to make a difference.”

For leaders to optimize creative solutions and team dynamics, they need to maximize their own health and vitality. Dr. Wendy employs a “whole person” concept of leadership. Dr. Wendy’s Achieve Vitality Experience coaches clients through leadership challenges and optimal performance while helping them maximize their health and quality of life.
