Stephen Beeson, MD

CEO & Founder
Clinician Experience Project by Practicing Excellence

As a successful family medicine physician, medical group leader, and physician coach, Dr. Stephen Beeson’s career has pioneered an approach to both the patient and clinician experience with demonstrated transformative results. Dr. Beeson is the author of two national best-selling books, “Practicing Excellence: A Physician’s Manual to Exceptional Healthcare” and “Engaging Physicians: A Manual to Physician Partnership.” Dr. Beeson has traveled across the country working with hundreds of health care systems to help engage, enroll and develop physicians to lead.

As the former Physician Director for the Sharp Experience at Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group, in San Diego, Dr. Beeson helped improve physician performance in patient satisfaction from the sixth percentile to above the ninetieth percentile nationally, while the Medical Group was recognized nationally with four Honoree Acclaim Awards from the AMGA as well as the Malcolm Baldrige Award.

Dr. Beeson founded the Clinician Experience Project in 2013 and currently leads the development of clinician-designed curriculum within the Project.
