Leadership Coaching

One-on-One Executive Coaching for Physicians

As you learn healthcare business principles through the Physician MBA Program, you also develop your executive presence and leadership capabilities. Each student has unique goals, challenges, strengths and weaknesses related to leadership, and our program offers one-on-one executive coaching to address these in a private environment for growth. Ours is the only program of its kind that offers executive coaching to help physician leaders achieve their personal and professional goals. This coaching:

  • Provides ongoing developmental coaching to physician leaders at regular intervals throughout the final nine months of the program.
  • Helps physician leaders understand and apply skills gained from developmental coaching in practical, realistic and useful ways within their unique organizational environments.
  • Enhances each physician’s leadership development with a highly individualized approach to growth and change.

Our executive coaches are doctoral-level MBAs, researchers, practitioners and published authors who specialize specifically in physician leadership styles and needs. They provide workshops and one-on-one executive coaching in the Business of Medicine Physician MBA Program.

More about Ray
My executive coach allowed me to ask the hard questions and gain honest feedback that perhaps others wouldn’t be able to give, with constructive advice on what to do with it. When I took over as department chair, I leaned on my coach during a mission, vision and values exercise, and I was thrilled with the outcome. I’m not sure I would’ve had the same experience without my coach.Christopher McDowell, MD, MBA’19 | Emergency Medicine Physician and David L.
