Coaching for Physicians can provide intensive coaching lasting half and full days for individuals.  

It is rare for engaged physicians to become burned out. To that end, we also consult with organizations, administrators and physician executives, to develop programs to change the work environment so that it encourages physician engagement and reduces turnover and burnout. In so doing, both the physician and the organization gain from a reduced staff turnover, improved patent safety and a more functional and productive medical team.

It has been said that,”the best way to predict your future is to create it”. This is the philosophy underlying much of the coaching at Coaching for Physicians and is fundamental to our work with doctors. As with most coaching the aims are simple—to build awareness and encourage responsibility.

Coaching for Physicians provides workshops and trainings for groups and organizations. Most of our workshops are for half or full days and can be adapted to a 45 minute keynote lecture.

We are located in Santa Fe and Albuquerque and provide services throughout the USA and Canada. Coaching can be done almost anywhere but is common on the telephone or in the convenience of your office or home (additional charges apply). For those in The Albuquerque-Santa Fe Metro we have a private, quiet office suite in uptown Albuquerque where you can talk with Dr. Hudson one on one.  We offer on-site individual intensive coaching and troubleshooting with one-on-one, confidential coaching for high value physicians and surgeons both nationally and internationally.

The essential nature of coaching is positive and forward looking. The relationship between the coach and the client is one of equals and, unlike therapy, the coach does not diagnose or treat illness. Coaching for Physicians provides one-on-one coaching services for individual doctors as well as coaching for organizations. You can connect with us using our contact form or by telephone at 505-280-4284.

Are you a good candidate for coaching? Ask yourself these eight simple questions.

If you are a doctor, Coaching for Physicians is here to help you. These programs are designed primarily for physicians and surgeons who are otherwise well functioning and need to achieve their personal or professional goals. Dr. Hudson has special expertise in the coaching of  healthcare professionals, including physicians, surgeons, dentists, mid-levels, nurses, administrators and other healthcare workers or organizations. His approach is existential, which means that the focus is on understanding his clients in a practical yet philosophical way. Existential coaching draws on the work of existential and phenomenological thinkers and in some ways is related to philosophical consulting. We offer individual coaching by telephone or in person.

If you are an administrator, lawyer or physician executive who needs help with a disruptive physician we offer urgent on-site individual intensive coaching and troubleshooting for high value physicians and surgeons. Problems of disruptive behavior often begins with unhelpfulness or rudeness and rarely go away on their own. Indeed, arrogant, abusive and disruptive behavior is frequently a prelude to more serious ethical and legal problems.  Dr. Hudson is a Fellow of the National Anger Management Association and has extensive experience helping angry doctors.  Most physicians, hospital administrators and clinic managers, now  recognize the need to create a more professional medical environment. This takes on new urgency with recent mandates from the Joint Commission (JCAHO) for assessment, intervention and monitoring of disruptive physicians.

If you represent an organization like a hospital, medical group,medical society, medical research organization or insurance company, Dr. Hudson is available for speaking engagements, trainings, workshops and referrals for individual coaching for your employees or members. We also provide on-site individual intensive coaching and troubleshooting for high value physicians and surgeons.You can contact him for an estimate of fees for workshops, on-site individual intensive coaching and full-day rates for groups and organizations with the form or call 505-280-4284.
