Physician Coaching

Imagine having a physician coach — your personal career and life strategist, advocate, adviser, and motivator.

You need physician coaching.

As one of the first physician coaches in the US, Dr. Gazelle has pioneered the field of physician coaching. She has coached over 500 physicians, and as the leading physician burnout coach, is an expert at helping physicians get back to thriving, and enjoying happy, balanced careers and home lives.

Being a Physician is Harder Than Ever

No if, ands, or buts – there has never been a more difficult time to be a doctor. Modern-day physicians are expected to see more patients in less time, spend hours on the electronic record, and deal with numerous below-grade administrative and organizational pressures. The Coronavirus pandemic has only exacerbated these difficulties – which is why, thankfully, there has been such a push towards physician coaching.

90%+ of physicians in 2022 struggle with:

  • Having sufficient time and energy for their loved ones
  • Leaving charting and the inbox at work
  • Remaining connected to their purpose as a doctor
  • Losing clarity on their personal and professional goals
  • Lack of confidence and decisiveness as a physician leader
  • Taking time to refuel physically and mentally

Meet Your Master Certified Physician Burnout Coach Gail Gazelle, MD, MCC

My 30 years as a physician, 20 years as Harvard Medical School faculty, 11 years as a career and leadership coach for doctors, and 25 years as a mother have all led me to the purpose I live by today.

My mission is simple: I give physicians, physician leaders, and other healthcare professionals the tools and confidence they need to thrive in their lives and careers. I help the individuals I coach see and access their strengths and feel the sense of meaning and purpose they deserve.

My coaching is founded on a couple of core beliefs:

I believe that there has never been a more difficult time to be a physician.

I believe that not enough attention is paid to physician wellness.

I believe that way, way too many doctors are walking around feeling stressed, burned out, and inadequate, as a physician and as a family member.

I believe that for all the medical training that we received, we got very little training on how to manage the stresses of the profession, and how to manage our most important instrument: our mind.

I believe that a small dose of physician mindfulness goes a long way. What I see time and time again is that small changes have a massive impact on the quality of life of the physicians that I coach and their coworkers, patients, and loved ones.

I believe that it’s every physician’s right to live a healthy, balanced life.

I believe that no matter how powerless they may feel, every physician can feel happy, in control of their life, and confident.

And perhaps most importantly – I believe in you. And I’m here to help you.
