Executive Coaching for Physicians



“The practice of medicine is an art, not a trade; a calling, not a business…William Osler


Executive coaching for physicians concerned with performance, development and fulfillment at work, whether in the office or hospital.  Executive coaching often involves organizations as well as individuals and can improve the functioning of teams and whole organizations. 


Executive coaching is most often used by senior physicians and surgeons to develop their leadership style or other skills but the benefits of coaching are not  limited to senior individuals. It is also used to improve communication, enhance motivation and develop skills for all employees.



“Patrick is an excellent and highly skilled coach. He career as a surgeon has led him to have a deeply nuanced understanding of the physician minds and work environment. He is uniquely suited to working with physicians and achieving results. He has provided me a framework that I can use to make decisions about my career and return to often as I have insight into what I find energizing at work and what drains me… I return to teachings and conversations we have had often in my work with other physicians…I recommend Patrick without reservation and with the highest endorsement.”
