Master of Public Health

"You know what you are doing with the students?" - "What?" - "You are coaching them." This short dialogue with a colleague at the institute of Medical Informatics at RWTH Aachen University in 2002 inspired me to have a closer look on coaching. He was right. As teacher and coach I see myself as facilitator, mentor, guide.
