Medical students often feel pressure to walk carefully within the lines set forth by the institutions that they live, learn, and work in. Students who face obstacles and issues along the way which they’d like to speak up about may feel they have nowhere to turn without facing professional repercussions. We believe that Advocacy Coaching sessions with experienced, knowledgeable physician advocates can help fill a gap in medical student’s systems of support.
