“A group of people with diverse characteristics who are linked by social ties, share common perspectives, and engage in joint action in geographical locations or settings.”
“Engage in joint action” is what sticks out most to me in that definition. In addition to creating educational resources with community members like Alvin Jones, MD about the Team Debrief, and Ryan Will, MD about Surviving Trauma, the vision I see for this community is one that empowers each of us to get what we want out of our careers.
What do you want from a medical community?
If you’re hearing more about coaching these days, it’s because the science is proving that coaching skills can benefit those in high demand careers. If you are unsure why Physician Coach Training may have value for all physicians and surgeons, I encourage you to reach out to SurgeonMasters Executive Director, Paul Hiller, to set up a conversation. The time we spend together in practice coaching gives us a chance to improve critical career skills like active listening and asking insightful questions. It’s also really fun and gives us time to focus on ourselves, which is a rare occurrence for me (I don’t know about you!).
In the future, we are planning an exciting opportunity to learn from an actor and improv teacher from Second City Chicago about Agility, Communication, Listening, and Teamwork.
Our mission at SurgeonMasters is to empower more surgeons around the world to make positive and lasting improvements in their lives. We achieve this through surgeon-to-surgeon coaching and coaching training programs designed to support surgeons’ personal and professional wellness.
