Sunday Special 16 – How I Launched My Private Practice in the Middle of the COVID Crisis – Dr. Tolu Olabintan

Dr. Tolu Olabintan

Sunday Special 16 – My guest today is Dr. Tolu Olabintan.  She’s a family medicine physician and HIV specialist who left her steady job in the middle of the COVID crisis to start her own private practice.  She started out with telemedicine and then launched her in-person private practice this summer.  I’m not sure if there has been a more difficult time to launch a medical practice than the middle of the COVID shutdown, but there can’t have been many.  She’s dedicated to helping patient both spiritually and physically, and she’s bold about speaking the name of Jesus on her website, with her staff, and to her patients.  She’s got a unique background and I think her story will really inspire 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!
