Time Management

Most of the physicians and surgeons we know complain that they do not have enough time. Many are overwhelmed by how much they have to do and how little time they seem to have available. Unfortunately, most do not know how to manage their time wisely. Time management is crucial to a successful medical career and creating effective work-life balance. It is also a crucial tool in managing and preventing burnout. Effective time management can reduce stress and help bring balance to your life in and out of the office. Time management training most often begins with setting goals. These goals are recorded and may be broken down into a project, an action plan, or a simple task list. Activities are then rated based on urgency and importance, priorities assigned, and deadlines set. This process results in a plan with a task list or calendar of activities. 


REFERENCES & COMMENTS: “I would like to write a strong letter of recommendation for the coaching I have received from Dr. Patrick Hudson…As a surgeon who is clinically busy and also involved in medical group/hospital leadership, I realized that having a coach is very important for developing “the soft skills” one needs to be successful in these roles. I have never had any training in these skills and finding a coach like Patrick was fabulous. Dr. Hudson has been a great resource to me and his wealth of knowledge is second to none. Our sessions have been spot on and he has provided me crucial information and readings that have shaped my leadership skills. He has become a great part of my career growth and comfort with my planning…As a surgical specialist, Dr. Hudson’s availability, communication and professionalism match my expectations of a coach. He is a great communicator and fabulous listener who has a great knowledge about the medical challenges…leaders face…I highly recommend Dr. Hudson as a coach for physicians without any hesitation. He is truly gifted in his knowledge and skills and will be a great resource to any physician leader or clinical doctor looking to expand their skills.” Vascular Surgeon/California
