Sunday Special 14 – What Does It Take To Build a Clinical Practice from Scratch? – Dr. Nneka Unachukwu (Dr. Una of EntreMD)

Dr. Una

Sunday Special 14 – My guest today is Dr. Nneka Unachukwu, better known as Dr. Una.    She is the founder of Ivy League Pediatrics, a multi-site pediatric practice in Georgia. While building this practice, she developed a love for entrepreneurship and has since built other thriving businesses as well.  Dr. Una founded EntreMD to help physicians like her start and grow a business.  She has a successful podcast, a great business mind, and a really interesting testimony.  She grew up in Africa, immigrated to the States, and has proceeded to take the medical community by storm.  She’s an incredible model of physician entrepreneurship, and I’m so excited to share her story with you!

Register for Residency-Proof Your Marriage!

I’m excited to tell you about a new online course I’m launching called “Residency-Proof Your Marriage.”  I’ve seen way too many couples get divorced or see their relationships go sour during their medical career.  Medical training is an inherently divisive time, so you have to work to combat that! 

This online video course will coach you through setting expectations, communicating effectively, getting on the same page with finances, and keeping your relationship thriving during a difficult time.  Whether you’re in medical school, residency, or out in clinical practice, Residency-Proof Your Marriage is going to help you build a thriving medical marriage.  

This is a very inexpensive investment in your marriage.  A weekend marriage retreat will cost upwards of $1000 between food, registration, lodging, and vacation time.  This course is just a fraction of that cost and you can complete it on your own time!

Registration for the beta course is closed, but get on the waitlist for the course launch this fall!

Meet Dr. Nneka Unachukwu (Dr. Una)

Dr. Una

I am the founder of a Ivy League Pediatrics, a multi-site pediatric practice in Georgia. In 8 years, it has become very successful and has been voted ‘Best of Gwinnett’ six years in a row and has been rated 5 stars by more than 200 parents in Georgia. While building this, I developed a love for entrepreneurship and have since built other thriving businesses as well.

I started off scared, ignorant and feeling like an imposter because I am a doctor, not a business person. Over the years, I learned that the two do not have to be mutually exclusive and I embraced the business world. Now I am a better doctor and I have a greater impact on the healthcare industry because I am an entrepreneur. Also, I am able to practice medicine on my own terms, develop my other interests and best of all, not miss time with my family.
