What is SurgeonMasters?

SurgeonMasters is a medical education company that delivers strategies and techniques overlooked or underemphasized in traditional medical training that improve practice performance, surgeon well-being and ultimately, patient outcomes.

SurgeonMasters educates, supports and empowers surgeons to practice with less frustration and greater control as you evolve a satisfying, sustainable and thriving career.

The goal is to focus on learning, understanding and implementing effective habits to create a thriving practice while still having time to travel, connect with your family, take care of your health, and pursue outside interests.

SurgeonMasters was founded by Jeffrey M. Smith, MD, FACS, a practicing Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeon, surgeon coach and frequent speaker. Email Jeff to learn more about how he assists surgeons develop the critical skills required to create a thriving, lifestyle-friendly practice that is physically, mentally and emotionally sustainable.
