One of the main complaints of physicians is shortage of time. Many physicians are perfectionists and procrastinators and completing anything on time is a struggle. This lecture covers basic time management strategies that can be used in both personal and professional settings.  It also discusses key communication skills needed to make certain boundaries are set and the physician’s needs are met.  

Dr. Hudson is the Time Doctor.  He founded Coaching for Physicians to help doctors develop the skills they need to succeed in modern medicine.  One of those skills is time management.
