For health care systems and professional organizations who want to bring Surgical Coaching to their surgeons, the Academy has developed an Institutional Surgical Coaching program. Our expert staff work with organizations to train participants, equip surgeons with Surgical Coaches, manage coaching interactions, and report outcomes to organizations.
Surgeons face challenges that impact procedural performance and hinder individual and institutional growth, some examples are:
Michigan Bariatric Surgical Collaborative (MBSC), a state-wide network of surgeons that share details about their practice to improve surgical care for patients. In 2015 to 2018, in collaboration with the Academy for Surgical Coaching cofounders Caprice Greenberg and Sudha Pavuluri Quamme, MSBC rolled out a coaching program to improve operative performance.
In a NIH-funded study between MBSC and the Academy for Surgical Coaching, results showed that surgical coaching helped reduce surgeon operative time, reducing average operative time from 92.5 minutes down to 78.5 minutes, a difference of 14 minutes (15%).
To introduce a lot of surgeons to Surgical Coaches in a short time, we host Coaching Roundtable sessions where surgeons can meet with 2 to 3 Surgical Coaches within an hour and continue to receive coaching from a Coach that fits their needs.
The Academy’s Surgical Coaching Program for Institutions provides a comprehensive package to seamlessly prepare, implement, and sustain a coaching program for your organization.
