PHYSICIAN AND RESIDENT COACHING

Medicine has hit a crisis and medical students, residents and physicians are at great risk for depression and suicide. We have a culture in medicine where seeking mental health services can be stigmatizing. Dr. Bates provides coaching for healthcare professionals (physicians, residents, medical students, nurses and healers)who may want to maintain privacy outside of their institutions. For physicians coaching may be a way to find support and help to guide them through a difficult time. Getting support and finding time to seek therapy can be daunting with your busy schedule so coaching also provides flexibility because meetings can be arranged by phone. With a coach you have an accountability partner guiding you and working along side you to meet your goals.
