Clinical Coaching for Excellence Program

Program Overview

The Clinical Coaching for Excellence Program pairs rural physicians with peer or specialist coaches, who support them as they work to improve specific areas of their clinical practice.

  • Each coachee is supported while achieving a specific personal or professional result or goal
  • Coaching is aimed at increasing confidence and improving skills, leading to better professional performance and patient outcomes
  • The program is relationship-based, learner-driven, customizable, formal, confidential and collaborative
  • Coaching is available for individuals or communities
  • Coaching pairs or communities may choose to focus coaching activities around specific areas or topics, including addictions medicine, emergency, anesthesia, or pain management

We are here to connect with your team/community and customize a program to suit your needs. To learn more about CAMP or get started, please email camp.rcpd@ubc.ca to schedule a consult call!

    Types of Coaching

    Clinical Coaching
    • including direct observation of coachee’s practice in their usual clinical context
    • scope and structure of individual programs will be driven by the coachee’s needs
    • Coaching can take place both in-person and virtually
    Peer Coaching
    • coaching relationship between physicians who are equals 
    • may or may not be practicing in the same community
    • one member of the coaching partnership is recognized as being the “coach”, by mutual agreement or by virtue of having advanced skills or more experience
    • Physicians can be in the same discipline or it can be a multidisciplinary relationship

    Examples of Coaching Activities:

    • Case discussion: Discuss a particular case in greater depth than can be afforded during direct observation.
    • One-on-one feedback: Decide to schedule time for the coach to share feedback with the coachee. These conversations can be focused on a specific case, patient or situation.
    • Walkthrough a procedure: A coachee may wish to observe their coach demonstrate a procedure through the use of videoconference, or have a coach observe while the coachee performs a procedure.
    • Debrief: The coach/coachee pair conducts a debrief after a procedure or direct observation.

      The Clinical Coaching for Excellence program is also offered through Rural Surgery and Obstetric Networks (RSON). Please visit the RSON page for more information about this program.
