It came to know Dr. Kyle Hoedebecke in 2015 during the Wonca Europe Conference in Istanbul. Since that time I follow his activities in social media, and keep in touch with him. I had a privilege to participate in the International (Global, I would say) Project initiated by Dr. Hoedebecke – #1WordforFamilyMedicine, and to become a #SoMe Ambassador of the week. Dr. Kyle Hoedebecke is known to be a founder of Wonca Polaris movement of young doctors from Northern America region. In April 2017 Dr. Hoedebecke was invited to Almaty, Kazakhstan, to take part in the 3rd Congress of Family Physicians of Kazakhstan as a speaker of Young Doctor’s Club, to motivate and inspire young and future doctors to choose Family Medicine as their profession, and shared his amazing experience. He provides a lot of support to me and my colleague from Kyrgyzstan, in our will to organize the Joint Movement of young Family Doctors of Central Asia.

As a family medicine physician in the Dominican Republic, I have had the fortune of working with Kyle over the past several years where he has provided amazing support in the global efforts to strengthen family medicine. We first met and presented together at the 2015 WONCA Ibero-American Regional Conference in Montevideo, Uruguay. His leadership has further been demonstrated among his innovations include the ASPIRE global leader curricula, the Balint 2.0 group, and the Social Media Network of GP/FM. He even helped us found the Dominican young doctor movement, which was launched in October 2015 at the WONCA Polaris Preconference in Denver, Colorado. Kyle has provided hundreds of hours in leadership and mentorship for residents and trainees in the Dominican Republic as well as dozen of other countries around the world. He has served among my personal mentors and has helped me – as well as my organization – grow professionally. More importantly, he is a true leader that had gained respect the world over – serving as an exemplary ambassador of American Family Medicine.

“I have known Dr. Kyle for several years and we worked together on several projects, we have communicated online and collaborated through social media. He helped me to improve Family Medicine in my country. This started with the #1WordforFamilyMedicine project. Kyle has proven to be among the most active and motivated leaders. He has been very inspiring, and encourage those who thought they were maybe not up to the task, by showing them their true potential and getting the best out of each individual. His energy is infectious, He coordinated and motivated a group of young family physicians across the globe to complete an amazing online course. I hope that I have adequately characterized the passion and potential that this individual has. I give him my full recommendation and know that he could be a great contribution for every system that chooses to have him on board and will enjoy working with him.”

It is a pleasure to write a recommendation for Kyle. He has organised different projects I’ve participated in, in relation with the WONCA Young Doctors Movement. He’s always displayed great leadership skills: motivating, attentive, receptive and organised. We mainly worked together online. He was the one who initiated the conversation through social media and wanted to know my professional interests, then he offered me participating in several projects compatible with them. He’s also a warmful and kind person and it is enjoyable to work with him. ​

I first met Kyle three years through my affiliation with WONCA, where I have witnessed Kyle perform amazing feats to improve family medicine here in Europe and around the world. Our greatest collaboration together was through the social media initiative titled the #1WordforFamilyMedicine that has included 120 countries to date and even landed here in Albania! From all I have seen, Kyle has proven that borders are man-made and should not limit international collaborations so that our united efforts may synergize and create much better outcomes than when performed in a vacuum. This is Kyle’s calling as a true family medicine ambassador – leaving a positive footprint in all the areas he travels in person or through social media. He has done this successfully time and again through his global initiatives like #1WordforFamilyMedicine, Balint 2.0 and the Global Social Media Network of General Practice/Family Medicine – contributing to the professional advancement of thousands of people in the family medicine community. Dr. Hoedebecke has gone out of his way to empower women within the international medical community as well as those with limited means. He has proven to be a motivated professional with high aspirations – helping others grow professionally at the same time. More importantly, he is a true leader that represents his country and organization at home and abroad to the highest degree. I look forward to many more collaborations with Kyle and give him my highest recommendation!

As a family doctor in Portugal, I have had the fortune of working with Kyle over the past years. During this time, he has strengthened our specialty by actively engaging in several successful projects. We have joined forces on different assignments both in person and online, from which I have personally learned a lot. I know him to have worked one-on-one with female physicians and trainees in many countries, fighting gender discrimination within the communities and in the workplace. Kyle is a passionate doctor, a true innovator, a role model and a leader. I look forward to many more decades of collaboration together so we may continuing strengthen Family Medicine worldwide.

I worked with Kyle on a workshop for an international conference. Even though we didn’t know each other before, working together was easy going and productive from the first email until after the workshop. He adds a lot of helpful and necessary skills to managing the group work and discussions and does make sure everybody feels comfortable and is included. I will gladly work together with Kyle on whatever project would come up, since he is someone you can trust in as a professional and as a person.

I have had the opportunity of knowing Kyle since 2014 where he has made a name for himself strengthening our specialty around the world. We have collaborated on several projects both in person and online culminating in multiple presentations/publications. Notably, we share a mutual desire to end gender discrimination within our communities and in the workplace. With this goal in mind, he has personally mentored female physicians and trainees in over 100 countries. Kyle is a true innovator, role model, and leader. I look forward to many more decades of collaboration as we perpetually fight to make medicine and our communities as a whole better than ever before. I offer him my complete recommendation!

“To whom it may concern: It is a true pleasure to provide this letter of recommendation to Dr. Kyle Hoedebecke. I first met Kyle in the 2015 WONCA Europe Family Medicine Conference in Istanbul and have collaborated with him multiple times since. Since then I did not find a person to be equal to him in his capacity of work, leadership, honest effort and humanity. He is noble, humble and tireless worker. I never saw him involved in rumors or speculation. Kyle is a born leader: His only way to grow is to raise people around him, knowing how to move masses with his enthusiasm and get the best out of each member of the team. I have always admired Kyle’s ability to calm the discussions and unite the parties in a common project. As a person with true inner strength, I have seen that Kyle has never needed to destroy the opponent to climb up the career ladder; I never saw him grow up stepping on others. His only way of showing what he is worth is with his effort, ingenuity and charisma. Kyle is an incredibly human doctor and an incredibly generous and noble human. As a family physician in Spain, I have witnessed Kyle perform amazing feats to improve family medicine here in Europe and around the world. My favorite collaboration together was through the social media campaign called the #1WordforFamilyMedicine that has crossed many times over to include collaborating to represent my native country Russia! Kyle has synergized our global efforts through his worldwide work as a true family medicine ambassador – leaving positive outcomes at all locations in which he has worked. Furthermore, his message has spread far and wide through the advantages of modern technology as well as through his ability to speak multiple languages fluently. He makes the extra effort to get others involved time and again through his global initiatives like Balint 2.0, #1WordforFamilyMedicine and the Global Social Media Network of General Practice/Family Medicine – contributing to the advancement of the professional careers of thousands of people in the family medicine community Dr. Hoedebecke has volunteered an impressive number of hours so as to better ensure the high quality of health care and medical education internationally. He has proven to be a motivated physician with high aspirations and who helps other grow professionally far beyond their current standing. More importantly, he represents his country and organization at home and abroad to the highest degree. I look forward to many more collaboration with Kyle and give him my highest recommendation.”
