The 8 PRACTICEs of Highly Successful Surgeons

MASTERS CLASS - Educational Series - Earn Up To 16 CMEs

To truly provide the BEST care to patients, we must first be certain to care for ourselves. To do otherwise becomes a futile journey. This eight session webinar series has been designed to:

  • Teach you the real foundational principles of highly successful Surgeons that provide outstanding patient care
  • Gain and maintain a life outside of your practice that supports the longevity that most of us seek from our career

Each one-hour session will provide you with enough educational knowledge to make significant changes within your practice and life!  Each session will end with an optional homework assignment that can earn participants an additional hour of CMEs credit.



  1. You will learn the eight critical practices of highly successful Surgeons, most of which were NOT taught to you in your medical training
  2. Establish an implementation plan to apply many of these eight practices to your daily life, so that you can begin to see the results of your efforts. 
  3. Adopt personal strategies to master these practices, so that you can provide the best possible care to patients and create a sustainable and fulfilling lifestyle-friendly surgical practice and career.

Target Audience:

Surgeons who are looking to earn CME credit while learning about creating a lifestyle-friendly practice with less stress and frustration, more control, and be able to pass these benefits on to their patients.


"I appreciate Jeff’s openness and willingness to share examples from his own experience.  He provides wonderful insights throughout his discussions with his guests in an enjoyable and entertaining way.  His series allows me to explore areas of interest to me, in a manner that I can balance with clinical work and at my own pace.  This series opened the door to exploring important issues about practicing medicine with a healthy work-life balance, and introduced me to many like-minded people who are similarly inclined toward self-exploration. It was well worth the time and investment.

Whether dabbling in introspection or a lifelong devotee of coaching, there is something for everyone in this series."

Carla Smith, MD, Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeon, Spokane, WA
