Physicians as Coaches:
Improving Physician Well-being and Impact
Today the professional lives of physicians demand the highest-ever levels of internal resources and well-being to meet the growing challenges faced by patients, as well as healthcare practices and organizations.
As a Physician Coach, you can become a new force for good - helping your patients, colleagues, and leaders tap into their deepest motivation, draw out their strengths, set their compass on their best selves, and shift their mindsets and behaviors to enable positive, lasting change.
All the while, you will be transformed through your own self-coaching journey, rediscovering your deepest values and resources, and rising above the tide of burnout.

What Physicians Say
Peter Grinspoon, MD
Massachusetts General Hospital, Instructor, Harvard Medical School
I thought that Wellcoaches provided a thorough, comprehensive and - most of all - inspiring training on all aspects of health and wellness coaching. It fostered both personal and professional growth. It left myself and my physician colleagues with the skills and confidence to jump right into the complicated world of helping physicians (and everyone else) navigate their distress, and enabled us to help others find the solutions they need to fulfill their dreams. I would gladly recommend Wellcoaches to anyone who asks.

Collaborating with Wellcoaches has transformed our institutional approach to supporting physician well-beng. The physicians who underwent training and certification are newly empowered to walk this journey toward meaning, purpose and engagement with colleagues and with themselves. They are well prepared to work 1:1 with their colleagues and engage in group coaching, which has been invaluable for improving system-level issues within the institutions.
