Peer Coaching is a collaborative relationship between the coach and physician client with flexible boundaries allowing for guidance and support in finding ways to navigate difficult situations. Our peer coaches are credentialed coaches and licensed medical professionals so they understand and have personal experience with the unique challenges of healthcare. Peer Coaches will work with physicians to set goals, strengthen practice and leadership effectiveness and achieve greater well being in both their personal and professional lives, including:
- Stress & Burnout
- Finding Joy, Meaning & Purpose in Medicine
- Identifying Limits & Setting Boundaries
