As hospitals and health systems seek to achieve transformational change, physicians face unique challenges, as well as opportunities. Propelled by the emergence of Accountable Care Organizations, global budgets, bundled payments, and other reform initiatives, a point of consensus has emerged—the need for physician leadership at all levels within healthcare organizations.

Physician leaders need new skills to engage in the complex questions of clinical integration, performance metrics, quality, safety, business measures, and population health. In addition to the standard physician core competencies, physicians must develops skills in areas such as systems theory and analyses, use of information technology, and enhanced knowledge of the continuum of care.

Concurrent with this technical knowledge, excellence in physician leadership requires a high level of self-awareness and a broadened set of tools focused on interpersonal communication, managing conflict and negotiating, critical thinking, and engagement, motivation and collaboration.
