About the Session

Clearly, there is an insatiable demand for more physician leaders in healthcare, and the supply of experienced and capable physicians leaders cannot currently meet this need. Choosing a physician leader is a serious process, and the consequences of choosing the wrong physician leader are great. Typically before selecting a physician leader, a good bit of input is gathered from various other physicians. Doing this gives them a stake in the selection. While this is not bad in and of itself, moving that physician leader out of the organization may upset many of these physicians. Often the best clinician is selected, and that is not always the best criteria for physician leadership roles. Moreover, some organizations are unclear about the role that physician leaders are to play.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to use greater specificity to better identify the unique requirements and competencies for physician leaders.
  • Use more scientific and structured assessment and selection processes to identify physician leaders and avoid the key mistakes often made when selecting physician leaders.
