Healer, Leader, Partner: Optimizing Physician Leadership to Transform Healthcare
Physicians undertake a noble, demanding profession, improving patients' lives. But the rapidly changing world of healthcare, and the complex knowledge and technology involved, challenges this calling. Physicians need to be healers, confidants, and caregivers while developing skills as leaders and partners. This indispensable guide provides practical, actionable learning to help physicians become effective, compassionate, and confident leaders, transforming healthcare into what patients want, need, and deserve.
Says Dr. Cochran: "When I became a surgeon, I had four years of medical school, six years of residency training, and a rigorous certification process to verify my competence. When I became a leader in the business of medicine, most of my training was on the job, just in time, and trial and error, which is a very different journey."
In this book, Dr. Cochran draws on his own path, focusing on essential skills for effective leadership, to provide in-depth examinations of critical topics including communication, leading change, managing performance through culture, and relentless personal development.
Dr. Jack Cochran is a Stanford-trained surgeon and served as executive director (CEO) of the Permanente Federation at Kaiser Permanente from 2007 until 2015. He is also the coauthor, with Charles Kenney, of The Doctor Crisis: How Physicians Can, and Must, Lead the Way to Better Health Care.
