Developing Physician Leaders for Successful Clinical Integration (Health Administration Press, 2013)

This is by far the best book I have ever read on physician leadership.  I only wish I would have had the benefit of the author’s wisdom 20 years ago when I started my administrative career.  Some of the topics covered include:

  • Identifying physicians who have a propensity for leadership
  • Addressing issues physicians face as they make the transition from clinical roles to leadership positions
  • Creating leadership development programs with an emphasis on the experiential side of leader development
  • The impact of physician leader derailment

Chapter 15 – Avoiding Derailment is by far my favorite chapter.  It provides insight into the reasons physician leaders can fail.  Again, if I had read this 15 years ago, I wouldn’t have had to learn things the hard way.  This is a must read for any physician leader – just starting out, in mid career, or nearing retirement – all will benefit from the insight and wisdom of Carson Dye and Jacque Sokolov.
