Joy in Family Medicine Coaching Services®

Joy in Family Medicine offers a systematic approach to coaching family medicine residents and faculty, so they can enjoy life and thrive in their chosen career. 

Physician Coaching

The Mayo clinic and Harvard Internal Medicine Residency have published studies showing physician coaching decreases burnout and emotional exhaustion and increases resilience and quality of life.  Coaching gives tools to thrive, clarity of direction, relief from burnout and overwhelm, restoration of balance, and can even help with academic difficulty. Joy in Family Medicine Coaching Services® offers packages and individual sessions of coaching by a certified professional physician coach with academic experience.

Leaders across medicine have discovered the benefits of coaching.

Now resident physicians can access this key to success at a critical time in their careers.

"I use a professional coach regularly, and it improves my leadership and decision-making every month. I grew up as a competitive diver, and every diver has a coach. For that matter, every competitive athlete and team, even the best, have coaches. I could not imagine that my professional work, which is infinitely more complex and consequential, would not benefit from expert, professional scrutiny and feedback. It has. In my opinion, professional coaching is the most effective form of continuing education. A professional coach can help you see your blind spots; can help you clarify your decision making process; can help you build more constructive and therapeutic relationships with patients and colleagues. Engaging a professional coach has been the best professional investment of my career."
