Coaching to Reduce Physician Burnout


In more than 2,300 responses to the CMA’s 2021 National Physician Health Survey, female physicians are reporting higher levels of burnout compared to their male peers.


A 2008 article published in the Canadian Family Physician journal suggests that a physician coach can be a catalyst for change to help a physician build resiliency. Resiliency is a key factor that helps reduce burnout. 


Both the Canadian Medical Association 2021 National Physician Health survey (above) and the 2022 Physician Foundation Survey reveal the challenging realities physicians experience and how critical it is to provide transformative support to help physicians survive and thrive.


Professional coaching may be an effective strategy to reduce burnout and improve well-being for physicians. This clinical trial showed that participants who received professional coaching had a significant reduction in emotional exhaustion and overall symptoms of burnout, as well as improvements in overall quality of life and resilience.
