About Dr Woolfson

At present, I work mainly as a Consultant physician in the NHS.

I am, however, steadily expanding my training, coaching and educational activities for doctors and other professionals in order to use what I have learned over many years from medicine, science and personal exploration for the benefit of others.

Current projects include designing and delivering communications skills courses for doctors in association with Oxford Medical Training, developing awareness and knowledge programmes to improve interpersonal and cultural understanding, and working with the 1610 peer group of coaches and trainers to enhance the breadth and depth of education that we can achieve.
