WHO WE ARE
For Every Surgeon, A Coach.
The Academy for Surgical Coaching (A4SC) 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. A4SC 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 coaches, matching every surgeon with a 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.
