Physician Development Coaching Initiative

The School of Medicine has developed a Physician Development Coaching program that will pair each student with a coach and additional student team members. This cohort of coaches paired with students will serve as an integrated home within the school of medicine for students. This innovative and unique student experience is designed to foster a coaching relationship that will contribute toward student professional identity formation while providing an additional layer of support toward the student’s academic success. Our coaches will assist in the development of resiliency, collaboration, communication and continuous improvement for personal and professional development within our student body.
