The pandemic has added exponentially to these sources of distress. Recent research on peer coaching, and growth in its use nationally, shows encouraging signs that peer coaching is a proven, viable resource that is effective in improving clinician well being.

This webinar will feature a panel of nationally recognized physicians who lead the Well Being/Wellness programs at their healthcare organizations.

Panelists include:

  • Natalia Dorf-Biderman, MD, Wellbeing Committee Chair, CDI Physician Advisor, Park Nicollet
  • Heather Farley, MD, Chief Wellness Officer, ChristianaCare
  • Kevin Coss, MD, Chief Wellness Officer, Community Health Network
  • Liz Ferron, MSW, LICSW, Physician Practice Lead,


The webinar will begin with a brief review of the latest research on peer coaching. Panelists will then share how their organizations have utilized peer coaching, the impact it has had on their organization and clinicians and best practices for promoting peer coaching. Watch the webinar now:
