The article addressed the fact that physicians are increasingly seeking coaches — life coaching, career coaching, and leadership coaching — to help them establish professional goals or achieve work-life balance. In addition the article mentioned that more physicians are contemplating a career transition to BECOME coaches. The Physician Coaching Institute was mentioned as a resource for coaches who want to obtain advanced certification training the area of healthcare coaching. The Physician Coaching Institute was founded by me over five years ago, and last year we went through a complete revamp of the program. At the end of 2007, fifteen coaches will have earned the Certified Physician Development Coach credential.
