Mentorship and advising programs have long been established in institutions of higher education. More recently, the coaching framework has emerged as a productive one to facilitate learning and growth in undergraduate medical education. Columbia, NYU, Utah, and UCSF have recently introduced formal longitudinal coaching programs to support changes in curricula and assessment that encourage a growth mindset. Understanding the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for effective coaching, from both the faculty and students’ perspectives, merits exploration for those considering implementing a coaching program. A workshop that reviews concepts, logistics and strategies for medical student coaching should provide attendees with ideas and tools to take back to their own institutions.
