What to Look For in an Executive Coach for Physicians

In April 1, 2007, the JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) established standards for all American Hospitals relative to disruptive physicians.

These new standards have opened a floodgate for psychologists, psychiatrists and coaches to become immediate experts on providing intervention for “disruptive physicians” with or without credible training or experience.

Some tips for selecting a reputable provider:

-What is the intervention model used?
-Does the model include an assessment component?
-Is the assessment specifically designed for anger, stress, communication and empathy?
-Does the model include a Pre and Post Test?
-Is Aftercare included?
-Does the intervention include psychotherapy or psychotropic medication?
-Is the intervention provided on-site?
-Does the intervention include envivo observation?
-Ask for a list of Hospitals for which the provider has provided this intervention.
-See if the provider is listed with the Federation of Medical Licensing Boards.
