About us

Vision and Idea

Coaches and mentors in medicine are not just necessary for students or those starting their careers. Learning new skills and coming to terms with ourselves is something that happens continuously throughout our careers, regardless of our age or positions. No one is ever too old, too experienced, or too good to learn something new from someone else.

There are many reasons to seek out a coach, such as at the beginning of a career, wanting to change careers, or learn new skills or advance in your current position.

However, it is not a one-time process. Careers are developmental processes where our goals change as we move forward. It is important to keep finding the right coaches to challenge and advance us on our career path.

So, based on our own experiences, we founded Brilliant-Skills. Our main goal is the optimization of medical practice by means of higher and detailed specialization.

We want you to perfect your practical skills and achieve new heights with the aid of the most experienced colleagues in your field. For this we mediate individual surgery courses in various medical fields worldwide. You can join these coaches for an operation, a day or maybe even a whole week or longer.  Sharing knowledge and experience is a passion which enriches medical practice.
