The Mission of the Institute 

The Physician Coaching Institute was initially founded in 2003 by physician coach and pioneer, Francine Gaillour, MD, as the Physician Leadership Coaching Institute.  Although the Institute as expanded and evolved, our mission remains the same: 

To catalyze change and innovation in healthcare

 We achieve that mission by: 

  • Educating the healthcare community about the value of professional coaching
  • Increasing the number of coaches who can expertly coach physicians and healthcare teams
  • Serving as the creative center for healthcare coaching best practices and future vision  

If you are a beginning or experienced coach, the Physician Coaching Institute offers an excellent avenue for you to expand your expertise and build your practice within healthcare through the Advanced Certification Program, which leads to the "Certified Physician Development Coach" credential.  Click here to learn more

If you are a physician, healthcare executive or team member looking for a coach to work with, the Physician Coaching Institute members are professionals with extensive experience.  Explore our directory of coaching professionals, and also browse through the articles our coaches have published.  

If you are a clinician who wants to explore whether healthcare executive coaching could be the next career path for you, please explore our new "Fundamentals of Healthcare Coaching" training, starting the fall, 2008.
