In addition to our expert webinar series, here are the additional learning opportunities for trainees:

"Your Professional Life Cycle" Online Course

This on-demand, online course provides all doctors with the roadmap for your career both during and after training. These are BTER U's original concepts that we recommend each doctor reviews with an accountability partner to better understand the professional and personal expectations during each phase of their career.

BTER U Online Live Course Sessions

BTER U utilizes the asynchronous learning approach to allow doctors to review assigned webinars, then participate in online classes led by BTER faculty and experts in a safe environment. Live course sessions topics will include: Coding and Billing, Choosing the Right Practice, Disability Insurance, Contracts, Negotiations, and Building our Financial Foundation

BTER U Workbook and Course Materials

BTER U has built the instructional design for our courses and live sessions on productivity, which means that our doctor learners will be able to apply learnings immediately. Therefore, doctors will receive our physician-developed BTER U Workbook and course materials to make these courses tangible, relevant and implementable.

SMART Docs in Training

Transitioning into our first practice/employed position as a new doctor in any specialty is daunting.

In addition, making the wrong first employment decision can be costly, professionally, financially and physically. 

Then, how do I choose?

"Shout out to BTER and Dr Bonnie Simpson Mason. As a result of her coaching, I was able to not only negotiate an increase in my salary but a sign on bonus as well! Also was able to feel confident all the other parts of contract were in my best interest. Thanks Dr Bonnie!"

Jasmine Zapata, MD, MPH
Family Medicine, First year in Academic Practice

"Dr. Mason coached me through a very important contract negotiation. She helped me clarify my short and long term goals to clarify what I wanted out of the agreement and then worked with me to understand how I could leverage my strengths to minimize my risks. There's no doubt that I would have walked right into a far inferior deal without invaluable her help. "

Dr. Emily Tan
CEO, White Coat Coaching & Orthopaedic Surgery Resident

"After attending Beyond the Exam Room’s sessions on contract negotiations, I was able to negotiate for an additional 6 figures over the term of my employment contract."

Dr. Tamara Huff
Orthopaedic Surgeon, 5 years in practice

"I have been empowered and am so thankful to Dr. Bonnie Mason for coaching me in contract negotiation through Beyond the Exam Room. I received the contract, I asked well though out questions and negotiated with the skills I learned. Can't thank you enough!"

Vivian Bea
Surgical Oncologist, First year in Practice
