What Do Recruiters Look For In a Physician Leader? with Paul Esselman – 041

2021-03-21T09:38:08-05:00

I’ve always wanted to learn what healthcare CEOs and recruiters are looking for in candidates. So, I searched for a recruiter who has interviewed and placed hundreds of physician leaders. For this interview, I found an expert at a firm that’s focused on recruiting physician managers, directors and executives for hospitals, medical groups, health systems and managed care companies. In the future, I hope to talk to someone who is focused on other fields, such as utilization management firms [...]

Create a Wildly Effective Annual Management Plan

2017-05-10T04:56:09-05:00

My practice partner and I had been working together for about a year in our small family practice. A medical equipment salesperson approached us promoting a new device that would surely bring in additional practice revenue. After considering the purchase, we decided to proceed. We signed a loan agreement and purchased the device. It would take 5 years to pay back the loan. We were convinced the device would generate procedures that would easily cover the loan payments. Eighteen months [...]

How to Prepare Quality Reports Your Board is Begging to See

2017-02-09T12:03:45-06:00

For this post, I'm going to “nerd out.” I love using data. And I love monitoring, improving and discussing quality and safety. That was one of the fun things I did as hospital CMO. I also enjoy playing around with ways to display data, especially for lay people with a limited understanding of statistics. So today we will make our way to the “popular” Bubble Graph (well – it's popular with me at least), as I demonstrate how to prepare [...]

4 Tactics for Building Trust and Inspiring Your Team

2016-12-09T15:56:23-06:00

It was both exciting and intimidating to participate in weekly operational and strategic meetings as a new member of the team. One of the first things I observed was how the CEO was building trust among the team members at almost every meeting. I was the newly appointed vice president for medical affairs (VPMA). I had convinced our CEO that is was time to add a formal physician leader to the executive team. It was 1999, and most [...]

Become a Physician Leader and Save the Medical Profession

2016-11-17T08:23:27-06:00

In the 1950’s, one-third of hospitals were run by a physician leader. By 1982, less than 3% were physician-led. That number is running about 6% now. And the healthcare industry has been in the throes of major changes. One of the consequences has been the growing employment of physicians. The expansion of this employment model is having serious negative effects on our profession. Physicians have become commoditized. Today, we seem to be treated more like run of the [...]
