Episode 12 – Being Your Authentic Self as a Female Physician – with Dr. Sasha Shillcutt, MD

When it comes to being a woman in medicine, it can be harder to be your authentic self due to the fear of being criticized or receiving backlash.

In this episode, Lauren Oschman and Jacque Denson sit down with Dr. Sasha Shillcutt, Anesthesiologist at University of Nebraska Medical Center and Founder & CEO of Brave Enough, as they discuss how women can be their authentic selves in the workplace.

  • How you can amplify the voice of your inner fangirl to grow your confidence 
  • Tips for busy physicians to be able to put themselves first
