Accredited by the International Coach Federation, the Physician Coaching Institute's mission is to equip clinicians and non-clinicians with field-tested coaching tools so they can be an effective coaching resource in their community. Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Dr. Gaillour is a ICF-accredited Professional Certified Coach.

As a mentor to healthcare leaders, executives, and coaches, Dr. Gaillour is committed to harnessing the passion of these "change catalysts" and ensuring that clinicians receive coaching resources that will enable them to flourish.  

With 18 years of coaching experience, Dr. Gaillour works with physicians who are struggling with the reality of a medical career path or leadership energy gone flat. The author of the "Physician, Reinvent Thyself!"  and "Building a Coaching Culture in Healthcare," she helps physicians discover and develop their dormant talents, unique strengths, and long-forgotten dreams, retool their career, and harness the  smarts they possess.

Recognizing that physicians have unique challenges when it comes to professional development, Dr. Gaillour has created a proprietary coaching development process, the Success Inquiry Method for Physicians™.

Her approach, honed over more than twenty years consulting with and coaching physicians, has lifted dozens of ‘daring doctors’ out of career doldrums and back to feeling the glow of professional achievement they experienced when they first entered medicine.

She has been interviewed by AMA News, Physicians Practice Journal, and MD Options and her physician professional development advice has been featured in Modern Physician journal.
