In a follow-up to the What is Physician Coaching? blog series, I thought I’d take a minute to write out what I felt is the ideal way for physician coaching to be used in graduate medical education (I explored the possibilities a couple of weeks ago). Dr. Michele Chestovich, a fellow family physician and coach, challenged me with this question after we concluded a recording for her podcast, Re-mind Yourself. (When this blog was published, the episode hadn't been released)....
As we close out the blog series What is Physician Coaching? I wanted to highlight the use of coaching in Graduated Medical Education (GME). Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) has more widely adopted coaching following the AMA’s Faculty and Student Guidebooks on Coaching. They have proactively recorded basic coaching videos and many medical schools host training for UME faculty.
I want to review a few important points to set the stage for this blog.
Listen in as Dr Jessie Mahoney and I talk about the key to culture change in medicine on her Mindful Healers Podcast.
