Coaching for Physicians works with individual surgeons and with organizations, like medical societies, hospitals and medical groups, to teach the skills needed to manage and prevent burnout and restore the joy to surgical practice. In modern medicine, burnout is common and the prevention and management of surgeon burnout is an urgent matter.  The latest figures show that at any one time, almost every other physician is experiencing burnout and over a medical lifetime 80% may experience some signs. Whether newly trained residents or experienced  surgeons the risk of burnout remains high, and seems to peak in mid-career.    It is rare for engaged surgeons to become burned out. To that end, we also consult with organizations to develop and change the work environment so that it encourages physician engagement, reduces turnover and burnout and  improves work-life balance. In so doing, both the surgeon and the organization gain from a reduced staff turnover, improved patent safety and a more functional and productive medical team.  Coaching for Physicians is here to help you develop the skills you need  for a  successful work life balance.
