Benjamin Franklin once said, “In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” At Coaching for Physicians we like to add a third item to his list: anger.  Anger can be an incredibly damaging force, costing physicians their jobs, personal relationships, and even their lives when it gets out of hand. However, since everyone experiences anger, it is important to have constructive approaches to manage it effectively.  
Simple examples are included to allow you to reflect on the importance of anger in your medical practice or business. All names and examples are fictitious. This course covers the basics of anger management and discusses some of the more important tools for today's physician. You must download the free guidebook that accompanies this course to continue with your studies.
