COMSEP has launched the COACH Certificate Program for September 29-20, 2022!  This interactive, longitudinal course, based on the competencies of the International Federation of Coaches, will give medical educators the skills and resources to effectively coach their learners and peers.

Why Coaching?

Coaching has broad applicability and is focused on asking questions that encourage exploration and curiosity in the coachee.  While mentoring is sometimes thought of as creating someone like oneself by directing them, coaching involves helping others achieve their goals by asking reflective and thoughtful questions.

Program Overview

Program elements include orientation materials, welcome reception, one-and-a-half-day in person conference taught by certified coaches that will include large group sessions and peer coaching practice, longitudinal learning and practice during monthly conference calls, and a half day course consolidation and celebration at the 2023 COMSEP annual meeting in Long Beach, CA.
