Preparing physicians for leadership positions.........................

This article of mine was recently published in THE major physician leadership society's journal this month. The link is here: http://www.physicianleaders.org/news/plj-articles/2016-march-april/2016/03/07/preparing-physicians-for-leadership

and a recent national newsletter; http://www.fiercepracticemanagement.com/story/4-insights-developing-physician-leaders/2016-03-23?utm_medium=nl&utm_source=internal&mrkid=%7B%7Blead.Id%7D%7D&mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiWXpKa05USXdOMk14WmpZNCIsInQiOiJHcXFpWVNEbURybXJlU25NSEdXTU9lRndZemdia1g2SWMzV054OFFFdkJQekdBamg3OCtcL2h6dXNLYWlmdjNXajhXYml5b092b2U2Y0lMSjBwRUUyWHlvQjJtSjR3OW1PRHNzelVTXC9ObEswPSJ9

The point is what has worked so far (picking the best clinicians to leadership positions) may not work often due to the complexity of the new environment and the lack of necessary new skills required to lead health systems.

Hospitals and health systems are just starting to play catch up by trying to train physicians with these new skills.
