Who We Are

Equip Every Surgeon With A Coach

The Academy for Surgical Coaching is a nonprofit organization that promotes the coaching mindset and skill set in surgery to support life-long learning and evaluate performance in practice. Coaching is used throughout one's career to set action plans and achieve goals to optimize performance in the disciplines of music, athletics, and executive coaching. The Academy now brings coaching to surgery.

Coaches help top-performing musicians and athletes become world-class. The Academy for Surgical Coaching is training a cadre of Surgical Coaches, equipping every surgeon with a Surgical Coach, and changing the way they develop as surgeons. We believe that Surgical Coaching is the best way for all surgeons, from trainees to retirees, to improve surgical skills, improve surgical care, and re-engage surgeons with their practice.
