Healthcare Executives and
Medical Directors

Here is how Healthcare Executives, Graduate Medical Education Program Leaders, and Medical Directors can finally execute an effective and impactful Wellness program for their interns, residents, and fellows.  


Medical executive leaders share with me three priority challenges that they face:


  • They are not as successful as they would like to be in delivering an impactful Wellness program that meets the individual needs of their Graduate Medical Education members.  Specifically, they face obstructions to initiating an effective coaching component that really makes a difference to their Wellness program for medical interns, residents, and fellows. 


  • While brilliant in their chosen profession, self-limiting and risk behaviors have been identified in medical interns, residents, and fellows.  These behaviors could potentially jeopardize the individual, create significant overwhelm and lack of confidence, slowing their momentum, derailing their career, and potentially harming their patients and the hospital system.


  • Team members and attending physicians report that they avoid engaging in difficult conversations that challenge these behaviors; few physician leaders understand the nuances of effectively coaching interns, residents, and fellows. As a result, system performance, outcomes, and culture remain status quo.

These challenges often lead to lower perceived self-efficacy, loss of confidence, social and emotional disengagement, and feelings of overwhelm and burnout.  Significantly, as many as __ % of medical interns, residents, and fellows leave their chosen field of practice; hospitals incur substantial costs to the culture, talent, training, and finances of their organization.



When leaders in healthcare engage with me, I help them to resolve the above issues.


The bottom line is that medical interns, residents, and fellows positively respond to individual coaching sessions.  Coaching provides confidential, safe, non-threatening, convenient, collaborative support that leads to positive behavior change, and improved professional performance. 


Further, GME Program Leaders experience a decrease in stress levels while meeting or exceeding their Wellness program goals. The hospital system becomes better able to draw and retain top ranked physicians, it is more effective because its medical practitioners have developed a mindset of confidence and competence, and it is ultimately more attractive to patients.



When GME Program Leaders and teams work with me, they benefit from evidence-based, research-backed methodologies and tried and true processes that result in people feeling more engaged and energized to give their best effort, and to perform to their highest potential.  They report a rise in confidence and perceived self-efficacy; a lowering of self-limiting thoughts and behavior; increased optimism, and decreased overwhelm; more efficient time management and influencing skills, all of which result in an overall increase in organizational capacity and individual and systemic wellness.


My name is Dr. Elizabeth Hall, and I am an expert in establishing a coaching component to Wellness programs in medical education centers.   Medical executives and GME leaders come to me for proven approaches and solutions designed specifically to roll out a coaching program for medical interns, residents, and fellows.


Unlike other coaches in this area, I am an experienced, expert strategic advisor and solutions provider for launching solid coaching practices for GME Wellness programs.  I have achieved a PhD in Applied Health Science, Health Promotion, focusing on Positive Psychology and Motivational Interventions for affirmative behavior change. My clients also appreciate my Master of Science in Education, enabling me to bridge the gap between theory, scientific research, and practical application of best coaching practices.  In addition to multiple client success stories, I have achieved various coaching designation, certifications in grief and crisis management, and qualifications in administering highly validated assessment tools.  Additionally, I have authored peer-reviewed coaching research articles, I am mentor to coach trainees, and I have developed a curriculum to train health care providers in the method of motivational coaching.


If you are, or have on your team, a GME Leader who would benefit from accelerating a strategic initiative to develop a positive, impactful Coaching Program for the medical interns, residents, and fellows of your hospital system, we should connect.
