Meet Anita

My passion is helping people to proactively manage their careers and experience 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 am the founder of an advice-based specialist consulting practice. This work allows me to indulge in my passions for writing, public speaking, and coaching people to understand and convey their value so that they can realise their potential.

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

This understanding comes from:

  • 5+ years running the Medical Careers Advisory for the Australian Medical Association
  • Engaging with thousands of doctors within Australia and internationally while working with Australia’s peak body for medical professionals
  • A 25-year background in business operations management and HR

In my career, I too have experienced the feeling of being stuck and had to learn how to make the moves required to get past that. I’ve also learned the importance of “doing the work” required to make necessary changes.

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.

    Peter Somerville

    Chief Executive Officer - Australian Medical Association (ACT) Ltd

    I've worked with Anita on several projects and events delivering career advice and building interview skills for young doctors. At all times, Anita has displayed a depth of knowledge and willingness to accommodate the needs of AMA (ACT) and our members that is second to none. Combining her depth of knowledge with a calm, structured manner means that I have no hesitation in recommending to future business partners.

    Douglas Randell

    Medical Director, Chief Medical Officer, Consultant, Specialist

    Anita, I still remember the confidence you gave me when I was thinking of transitioning from clinical work to medical administration. It has been an important step that has enabled much opportunity and wider impact. Thanks for the great work you do.

    Final Year Medical Student

    Thank you again Anita for your help with my cover letter and CV. You were very thorough with your feedback and I would highly recommend you to my colleagues. I really appreciated how you were able to help me clearly articulate my skills and career achievements concisely and ensuring that the important parts were clear to see.

    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.
