Validation study for the Wisconsin Surgical Coaching Rubric (WiSCoR), a novel tool to assess the performance of a peer surgical coach. Using 282 WiSCoR ratings from 106 coaching sessions between 23 coaches and 38 coachees in Wisconsin and Michigan, the authors found high inter-rater reliability for WiSCoR and a weakly positive correlation between coaching quality and coachee satisfaction.
