“Our goal is to equip coaches with advanced coaching concepts and tools–whether you are internal to your healthcare system or an external coach—to more expertly address the challenges facing physicians. We are proud that our ICF-accredited curriculum has evolved over the past fifteen years to reflect not only changes in healthcare that impact physicians, but also…who’s becoming a coach! Health systems are taking note that professional coaching is a must-have resource for their physicians in order to foster well-being and resilience—- research backs that up. It is truly gratifying to hear from our coach graduates and learn about the impact they are having with physicians in their community.”
