Surgical coaching is a form of mentoring that can improve surgical performance. While professional athletes have coaching their entire career, other professions, such as medicine, law, and education, are expected to manage their own improvement in performance over their careers. Methods of surgical coaching and the pros and cons of coaching to improve surgical performance and improve patient safety will be presented.
