Surgical coaching is gaining attention as an approach that could help surgeons optimize performance and improve overall wellbeing. However, surgical coaching programs and definitions of coaching vary widely between studies, which have reported inconclusive effects. In this scoping review, we aimed to characterize quantitative studies on coaching interventions for professional surgeons to understand how surgical coaching is defined, examine how different coaching programs are designed, implemented, and evaluated, and identify any relevant research gaps.
