Partnering with Physicians and Healthcare Organizations.
“If it weren’t for SurgeonMasters, I would likely feel isolated and questioning my career choices. Surgeon coaching has helped me find the energy to not only have a satisfying career but have more time for my family and pursue clinical research, medical writing and publications, teach at courses and participate in local and national committees.”
-Ryan Will, MD – Orthopaedic Surgeon
Why are so many surgeons experiencing moral injury?
Every day surgeons feel the intense pressure of being at their best for every patient and the people around us—on top of working long hours, EMR duties, medical education requirements, and online reputations to worry about.
Too often, surgeons are left to store their emotions “inside” and keep going. And when confronted with these problems, many are afraid of how they’ll be perceived if they speak up. If they can’t handle it all, why be a surgeon? This can lead to poor performance, low energy, and questioning career decisions.
IMAGINE IF SURGEONS HAD…
A strategy to help refine surgical skills, EMR optimization, managing office personnel, and preventing burnout.
Accountability for their actions and a sounding board to weigh career-defining decisions and the right path forward.
The energy to not only save lives, but to be present with their spouse and families, and enjoy working again.
A safe space to talk through professional and personal challenges with someone living a similar lifestyle (not restricted to their exact specialty).

Surgeon Coaching Success Stories
“I valued talking to a trained coach and fellow surgeon and getting advice and input about balancing work and personal life, career development, and other specific issues that come up. What I value the most is I feel it is a ‘safe space’ to talk about these things with an unbiased outside person with similar experiences.”
“No one tells you how to run a practice, let alone how to start a program from scratch without any senior guidance. Having a sounding board for how to grow your practice is invaluable. I think that it helped me realize some of the personal goals and personal vision that I’ve had for myself as a surgeon. That work isn’t done, but I truly believe I am further along than if I hadn’t enlisted a coach.”
