Having a Coach: A surgeon’s experience


Athletes have coaches. Opera singers have coaches. But physicians? Could a physician’s expert performance be improved by having a coach?

Dr. Atul Gawande, surgeon at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, has written an article for the New Yorker magazine on this very topic. Interesting, informative, and thought provoking. Worth a read.
