Troubleshooting  for High Value Physicians & Surgeons 

It is not uncommon for hospitals, medical groups or societies to have an urgent issue with a valuable physician or surgeon who is a high earner but having difficulties with peers, staff, medical boards or other authorities. The loss of such an individual is costly and replacement, including lost earnings, may well rach over a million dollars. This is even more expensive when the high costs of litigation are included. 

In these situations it is worthwhile for an organization to invest time and money in helping these physicians with a coaching intervention and intensive executive coaching and anger management. Coaching for Physicians  specializes in helping organizations retain physicians and surgeons who are burned out, disruptive or lack the necessary  skills to work well with other staff members and patients.  Don’t lose a valuable staff member because of these issues, help them with coaching from Coaching for Physicians. Our disruptive physician program can help you manage a disruptive physician on your staff.

Coaching for Physicians can schedule appointments for intensive coaching either at Dr. Hudson’s farm in Cedar Grove, Santa Fe, NM or his uptown office location in Albuquerque.  For an additional fee and expenses, Dr. Hudson will come to you and provide one-on-one, confidential marathon coaching intensives in your home, office or other location. In marathon coaching  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 individual or couple has a unique schedule that is worked out in advance. Marathon coaching is especially useful for physician clients who cannot attend weekly coaching sessions and need to travel from distant locations. It provides a brief, intensive and focused approach to your coaching issues and is designed to help you learn new skills in less time.

It is always best to prevent disruptive behavior before it occurs. While 3-5% of physicians and healthcare staff may demonstrate disruptive behavior, it is estimated that 30-50% have poor communication skills. Our workshops can teach physician executives and administrators how to improve communication skills in their teams and avoid disruptive events before they occur.

It is rare for engaged physicians to become burned out. To that end, we also consult with organizations to develop and change the work environment so that it encourages physician engagement and reduces turnover and burnout. In so doing, both the physician and the organization gain from a reduced staff turnover, improved patent safety and a more functional and productive medical team.

Patrick Hudson MD, FACS, MA, MS, is a Board Certified Coach and uniquely trained and positioned to help your organization. We offer on-site troubleshooting and one-on-one, confidential coaching intensives for high value physicians and surgeons, and other high profile clients, both nationally and internationally. 

Our individual intensive coaching usually lasts a full day or longer. Follow up is achieved with monthly on-site visits and frequent telephone coaching. All intensives are preceded with a personality assessment (usually the EverythingDiSC profile) of the individual physician or surgeon. In most cases a 360° assessment is needed and we prefer the easy to understand and less threatening EverythingDiSC 363 for Leaders report.
