Wellness coaching is a rapidly growing industry that is becoming more recognized in the health professions. Patients are increasingly interested in a holistic approach to care; wellness coaching meets those expectations by delivering care through a comprehensive approach that encompasses physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, social, and environmental considerations. Although health and wellness promotion are important topics in the health professions, professional certification in coaching is relatively new. Additionally, there is a gap in the literature regarding interprofessional coaching initiatives. More interprofessional coaching endeavors are needed to demonstrate the impact on student learning and patient outcomes. The purpose of this lightening talk is to learn how to develop and implement an interprofessional wellness coaching program
