Meet Anita

My passion is helping people to experience increased confidence to proactively manage their careers and the elation that comes with landing each individual person’s dream job. My objective is to provide services that enrich people’s careers and, in turn, their lives..

As a highly experienced Medical Career Coach I’m now the founder of an advice-based specialist consulting practice.

For 5+ years I ran the Medical Careers Advisory for the Australian peak body for medical professionals (Australian Medical Association), engaging with thousands of doctors within Australia and internationally.

I have a deep understanding the many and varied complexities and challenges of a career in Medicine and the opportunities that exist for doctors outside of Medicine.

I also bring a 25 year background  in business operations management and HR.

I too have experienced the feeling of being stuck and learned how to make the moves required to go past that. I’ve also learned the importance of “doing the work” required to make necessary changes.

Others have said that I’m highly trusted, can build rapid rapport, and that I know far more about navigating medical careers than most others.

My expertise, in combination with personalised assistance and career-related training services, results in significant progress toward greater career fulfilment for doctors and others within the health sector and beyond.

Professional passions include coaching people to realise their potential, creating effective teams, writing, public speaking.

What our clients say!

    Senior Radiology Registrar

    Melbourne

    Anita demonstrates vast experience and knowledge in the preparation for competitive medical subspecialty applications.  Anita assisted me in structuring my experiences into genuine, honest and situationally appropriate responses that I could clearly convey to the interview panel.  Her emphasis on helping me structure and communicate my professional and personal skills, experience and future goals as effectively as possible was a key element to success.  Moreover, Anita is an absolute pleasure to work together with, and she conveys a genuine desire for her client to achieve their best.  I highly recommend Anita’s services in the preparation for medical subspecialty application and interview.

    Erika Stradzins

    Critical Care Senior Resident Medical Officer at St George’s Hospital Sydney

    Ms Fletcher is an incredible asset to the Australian medical community. I first worked with Anita in my capacity as the president of the Women in Medicine Group, at the University of New South Wales, a grassroots initiative to promote gender equity in the medical profession. Anita facilitated a tailored workshop for medical students on how to build CVs. She engaged well with not only the audience, but also those who video conferenced in, showing superior communication skills. Feedback from students included praise about her practical advice, understanding, and ability to answer questions. We were also appreciative that Anita came after hours to share her knowledge with us. Thanks to Anita we now feel empowered to take positive steps towards our careers in medicine, and are excited about being the next generation of doctors.
