Use your hard earned points and miles to create intentional, meaningful travel experiences to fight burnout.
Hi, I'm Kelly, the Points and Miles Doc
I'm a busy surgeon, division director, funded researcher, fellowship director, and surgical coach ... and I love teaching medical professionals about points and miles.
When I was a fourth year medical student, I had to take out an additional loan just to travel to residency interviews all around the country. While interviews might be virtual now, the process to becoming a physician is laden with high expenses throughout our entire careers.
When I learned about travel hacking in 2015 as a young attending, my goals were to offset the costs of travel so I could focus on paying off loans, buying a home and saving for the future.
Now as a mid-career academic surgeon, I aim to make the most of my vacation time by booking the most comfortable and meaningful travel experiences I can. Experiences I could never afford if I paid cash.
Physicians are busy, and burnout is rampant in medicine. I believe by effectively automating our expenses onto travel reward credit cards, we can further enjoy our most valuable commodity - time.
I became a physician because I'm fascinated by the wonderful biodiversity and people in this world, and I can't wait to see it all!
