If you find it hard to find time for individual sessions with Dr. Hudson we also provide online elearning for physicians including modules on soft skills, body language, work-life balance, time management, and anger management. Many of our classes have CME approval.

We help you develop the people skills and soft skills essential to modern medical practice. Our services include coaching for burnout and stress reduction, anger management and disruptive physician coaching, marital & relationship coaching, malpractice support, time management, conflict resolution, career & retirement coaching, executive coaching, and emotional intelligence & communication skills coaching for physicians and surgeons. 

Coaching for Physicians provides individual, one-on-one telephone and in-person coaching by a physician for physicians. In the United States and Canada, Dr. Hudson will come to you and provide confidential intensive coaching in your home, office or other location (additional fees and expenses apply). We also offer intensive coaching marathons at Dr. Hudson’s uptown office location in Albuquerque, NM.  Individuals meet one-on-one with Dr. Hudson for 5 hours a day and for 1-3 consecutive days and stay overnight at a nearby hotel or bed and breakfast (we can help you make arrangements).  Each client has a unique schedule that is worked out in advance. Intensive marathon coaching is especially useful for physician clients who cannot attend weekly coaching sessions and need to travel from distant locations.This immersive experience is the quickest way to make changes and get up to speed on important soft skills concepts.

I would highly recommend this intense counseling day marathon with the follow-up phone conversations to any open minded physician who wants to adapt to medical practice of the 21st century. Urologist/Minnesota
