The Office of Resident and Fellow Development supports trainees' professional development and academic success. Director Cloe Le Gall-Scoville, Ph.D., offers individual coaching appointments as well as workshops and coaching to groups, teams, and programs.

Individual Coaching

Coaching is a partnership between coach and client that helps individuals maximize their personal and professional potential and fulfillment.

With the support of a coach and ongoing check-ins, trainees can work on academic, productivity, career/leadership, and communication goals. Describe your desired outcome, deepen your self-awareness, explore options, set goals, craft a plan, take action, and monitor your progress.

Individual coaching is provided to all residents and fellows at no-cost through the GME Office. Coaching is confidential and the content of coaching sessions is not disclosed to departments or GME unless there are safety concerns.
