Students and educators are likely well-versed in academic advising and mentoring, which are distinct from academic coaching. Advising tends to be more directive and process-oriented, such as mapping out how to apply for a fellowship. Mentoring involves sharing personal knowledge and expertise to holistically nurture professional relationships.
Academic coaching takes a different approach to career development. Coaches help learners identify goals, create a plan to achieve them and cultivate skills of self-management and self-reflection.
As a new frontier in medical education, coaching fundamentals may seem ambiguous to faculty and administrators. That’s where the AMA Academic Coaching in Medical Education Video Series comes in.
The following nine short video modules—which can be accessed for free on the AMA Ed Hub—identify the competencies, skills, and approaches of successful academic coaches alongside examples of what not to do.
Educators at any point in their career can use these videos to become more effective medical education leaders.
Each eight- to 12-minute video from the AMA is intended for any educator in a medical setting, particularly if you are clinical faculty working with students or residents. The list of topics is as follows:
Learn to differentiate the roles of coach, advisor, and mentor and how to get ready for your initial coaching meeting.
Discover how to build a meaningful coaching relationship, including the value of preparation.
Learn how to define “Master Adaptive Learner” and what questions might help elicit reflective behavior from your coachee.
Discover components of effective communication and how to help develop a learner’s emotional intelligence.
Find strategies for helping your coachee cultivate well-being and professional fulfillment.
Explore how to incorporate co-creative brainstorming to facilitate problem-solving.
Identify when to seek help when working with a highly successful learner.
Familiarize yourself with techniques that can be used to engage a reluctant learner.
Learn the value of the 5D approach: define, discover, dream, design and deliver.
As these video modules demonstrate, coaching is a co-creative effort to help learners reach their full potential. By honing your skills as a coach, you’ll be better equipped to help your coachee achieve their goals.
